Dragon Quest XI will be an offline game for home console, series creator Yuji Horii said during an interview with Final Fantasy fan-site FFRing.
Hopefully DQXI is on the PS4 rather than the Wii U.
Depends on if Square want the game to succeed or not.
Going by their recent actions.I think it's a safe bet it will be on PS4.
i hope it is for PS4 ..but there are chances to be on Ninty's NX ....also F..Yeah that is a normal offline game for console owners
This will be the best news for a long time. A classic dragon Quest on PS4. TGS will be hot this year. Cannot wait
Dragon Quest 7,8,11 announcements all in one day. Today was a good day.
And you didn't even have to use your AK
Nintendo NX, lol if true
Man have not played one since the ps2 days!! Really good as I recall
YESSSSSSSSSASSSSSSSSSSSSSSS AAAAHHHH YEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH. I would like to thank our lord and savior the troll master Shinji Hashimoto for this wonderful news. I will buy the ff7 pc port now and reaffirm my connection to the troll master.
Obviously for Wii U, right?
PS4 or WiiU please
Yeah, anywhere! I need to play it!:)
I'm certain this will be on PS4 since most of Square Enix's consoles games arrive on that platform these days to great success.
Finally a new Dragon Quest, not a mmorpg game, Dragon Quest Heroes looks great too, but we need a traditional jrpg game for the series.
Hope it is on Wii U. PS4 exclusives have not done great in Japan. I want it to succeed. People are conveniently forgetting that DQ X was on Wii U. So it being on a Nintendo system would not be odd.
Untrue ... the ps4 is totally crushing wii u in Japan. I think that you think it would save the sinking wii u ship, but even Nintendo wouldn't assume that. It would at least move some wii u's but so many fewer people worldwide would get to ever play it.
PS4 is totally crushing Wii U in Japan? Is that why for the last month Wii U outsold it? Because it is getting crushed? Do you understand Dragon Quest at all? I do not think you do.
@RPGrinder This is going to come off as a rant simply because your comment makes no sense and contains a nerdy personal attack... One month does not a TREND make... and look at game sales please. PS4 usually beats Wii U for many of the top spots in game sales. The Wii U came out a full year ahead of PS4 and the trend has been toward more PS4 Sales in the time sine its release. You want to see the platform of choice for RPG gamers in Japan? Did you not see that Wii U isnt getting Persona 5... or disgaea? FF7 remake... FF15... what else isnt it getting? Im not saying it isnt a place where a DQ game would sell, Im not even saying its selling badly. Im telling you that its not beating out PS4 in any way its seeing a spike in sales because of games like splatoon, xenoblade and a DQ Online game thats cross platform with Wii. Asserting that PS4 exclusives dont sell well in japan is weird considering that alot of its games effectivly ARE ps4 exclusive as Xbox has no foothold there. Watch the sales charts... I've been playing DQ since it was called Dragon Warrior on NES sir... dont assume what you cant possibly know about me. Im not going to make some random assessment of YOUR Intimacy with the series but to say I dont "understand" dragon quest? What is it a misunderstood child? Your girlfriend? Is it EMO and nobody understands it? What the hell does that even mean? Its like you dont understand what understand means.
Sorry but your completely wrong. Since the PS4 has been out, the Wii U has generally been doing better in software sales and especially hardware. Nintendo has a relationship with square with DQ in particular. And 3DS is getting more JRPGs than anything, so?
@ [...] RPGrinder First.. its You're and second you're the one whos wrong. PS4 came out in japan in Feb 2014. Wii U in December 2012... a year and couple months before it. Considering that it had that big of a lead and PS4 Is already over 1.5 mil sold and Wii U sold Wii U is in its big releases phase and its still not doing any better than breaking even- and at a lower price point. Worldwide its floundering and even if you double its sales it doesnt touch PS4. When PS4 launched the Wii U had an installed base of around 1.6 mil in japan.. Now it has about 2.3-2.4 million and ps4 has over 1.5. SO Since Feb 2014 the PS4 has sold over 1.5 mil in japan and Wii U has sold under 800,000. Thats actually almost DOUBLE dude where the hell do you get the idea that its even competing? AND NO IT doesnt do better in software sales overall, not even close. It has less software so you see more sales on an indevidual game but if you're talking about software sales totals its had some big releases already. Given that alot more PS4 sales are digital and not tracked we dont have numbers for those so you should be keeping that in mind before assuming. Even only counting physical if you're talking about Square FF games have been selling quite well on PS4 and Dragon Quest heroes actually sold millions across playstation platforms and its not even a real dragon quest game. It has outsold Dragon Quest X for Wii, Wii U, and MS windows combined. Please tell me more about how Wii is winning.
PS4 YTD in Japan 581.136 Wii U YTD in Japan 277.374 But yea, let's talk about last month. That is more important. Also PS4 sold more last week. Dragon Quest VIII was PS2 exclusive so it's obvious that DQXI will be on PS4.
Pulling numbers out of your ass now? Wii U is the highest selling console in Japan out of all the consoles out right now (other than PS3 which is much higher). "Dragon Quest VIII was PS2 exclusive so it's obvious that DQXI will be on PS4." "Dragon Quest IX was DS exclusive, 3DS has seen 5+ Dragon Quest games, DQ X is on Wii U" It is obvious DQ will be on a Nintendo platform if you want to use childish logic.
@RPGrinder Those numbers arent out of any ass... The Wii U had a year head start and the PS4 Is catching up fast. Its not news.
"Except they were not involved in the development." link where it says that Nintendo was involved in the development of Bayonetta 2 and Smash Bros.
Don't worry. it would succeed on PS4. FF XII sold 2 million on PS3 in Japan only. "Nintendo has a relationship with square with DQ in particular." Where you can/will be able to play Dragon Quest Heroes, Star Ocean 5 and FF VII Remake (first)?
With their recent focus on PS4, highly likely PS4, though hope its multiplat release, series needs more exposure in the West and releasing it on PS4, X1 and PC will benifit everyone.
I pray for ps4
