"It's a real joy to me to have titles like Dragon Quest V released on a system like the DS. There are games that, for one reason or another, will never see the light of day in the US that have enjoyed success overseas, and with a system like the DS, it seems that their day to be viewed by America is here. Early on in the system's lifespan, I remember a few complaints floating around about the DS being just a gimmick and just a way to port over older games... where's the harm in that? With SNES classics like Dragon Quest and Chrono Trigger (y'know, if you're into that sort of thing), gems from the following era like Mr. Driller and Super Mario 64, and continuing franchises like Pokémon, it's more and more obviously a classic-capable machine.
Which means, we can see great titles like this come about more often. A dual-screen dream come true."
