The latest issue of Weekly Jump features coverage of the newly announced Dragon Quest XI, showcasing a battle scene in the PS4 version for the first time.
Omg it looks turn-based. Yes, finally
...Because there are so many real-time Dragon Quest games?
Confirmed: 4 out of 5 N4G users have no understanding of simple sarcasm.
I've never had the opportunity to play a Dragon Quest game. DQ8 is the only game I really know about that came out west. Hoping this comes over from Japan so I can try it out.
They were called Dragon Warrior in the west before that. 1-4 were on the NES and 7 came to the west on Playstation.
Yeah I do remember that. I think I might have played a little of one of the NES games on an emulator once, but that's it.
That looks awesome. I like how it doesn't appear to transition to a generic battle arena to fight on. Maybe it's combat is more akin to Chrono Trigger? Where it is still turn-based, but battle takes place on where ever you encounter the enemy. The 3DS version looks cool as well. I just might have to get both versions when it comes out.
Looks great, yes I'm far behind so this will be my first DQ game.
Wish I can read Japanese and import it here in the states. Its going to be a long wait for them to localize.
What really sucks about Dragon Quest is that to really appreciate the game, you need fluency. So much of the humor is lost if you don't know kanji and Japanese culture inside-and-out.
I've never had that problem.
...What are you trying to say? Either you're sufficiently fluent that it's not a problem, or so insufficiently fluent that you don't even realize what you're missing.
Looks spectacular on PS4, they need to localize it as soon as possible. :)
