Square Enix is considering the game for localization but has no "concrete plan" for it yet.
Being that it's a main-line DQ i think it has a good chance of being localized. I just hope they localize both the 3DS and PS4 version because they both look awesome.
Its coming. No doubt.
I wish I could be as sure as you are sir,we need this announced for the west or I will punch Akira Toriyama with a dragon punch.
No shit it's possible, this isn't some indie company its SE they cant make excuses.
If this doesn't get localized; BOTH VERSIONS, then Square Enix is completely stupid.
I'm getting it when it comes to the West
Any company's 'concrete plan' should be about making money and I'm sure that Square Enix knows that this will also sell in the West. Since Japan has not exactly scooped up the PS4 yet, the best return on their investment would obviously be the West, at this point, but I'm sure that DQXI on the PS4 would help to move more units in Japan.
It better be! >:(
I'll be seriously pissed if it isn't. I'm fairly confident it will be though.
With PS4's success in the West, would be foolish not to release it here. I am also hoping DQX for the PS4 will be localized.
I'll personally go there and bite someone's balls off.
It is extremely likely it will come to the west. Let's remember that the PS4 install base in Japan is around 1.5 millions while in the west it is 20 millions. Heck I would go as far to say the PS4 version exists FOR the western audience. The 3DS version in Japan will easily sell 4-5 millions like DQIX did, while the PS4 version there can not sell even 1 million due to the very small install base. The only way for them to justify the high development cost of the PS4 version is if they planned to release it in the west. SE really needs to work on their PR.
The 3DS version is going to sell 3-5 million units in Japan. I can see Nintendo picking it up after bravely second. This is going to be a monster seller. I can see the PS4/NX version selling about 500k in Japan, 500K in the West. Still worth bringing over
"PS3 had 10x the install base of PS4 in Japan." after 3 years on market? Dragon Quest spin off sold 500k on PS4, and you think that main game will sell the same on bigger userbase?
PS3 was successful in Japan. PS4 is on pace to be the lowest selling sony system ever in the region. The 3DS version of XI is going to sell 75% of the copies
"PS3 was successful in Japan." There won't be 1 million gap between PS3 and PS4 after first 3 years. "The 3DS version of XI is going to sell 75% of the copies" So PS4 version 2 million, 3DS 6 million?
" And IGN, Game informer who always say 3DS has the best library right now." so you trust IGN and Game Informer?
More people trust them than you. 1 person at least trusts them.
They will bring it over. We are sales. It makes no sense for them to localize everything else but then look at this title and be like, "Ummmmm, I don't think it'll sell." Now, if they were being stingy on everything they have a hand in, then okay, it would make sense.
If they don'tlocalize it, I will be so mad and sad, someone start a petition, all we need is subtitles, is that so much to ask for?
