>>256827658 >Square lazily ports DS ports of Dragon Quest games to the iphone >"What do you mean you aren't interested in a $20 port of an 8 year old port of a 22 year old game? I guess that means America doesn't like Dragon Quest. Hiroshi-san, throw that Dragon Quest 7 localization in the trash"! >"HAI!"
>>256828996 >>256829354 It's a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" situation, and I'm pretty sure Square -Enix fucking knows it. If the iPorts don't sell well, Dragon Quest is completely dead in the west. If they do sell well, it just means even more low effort iPorts. Anything to keep from having actually localize and make prints of new games on actual video game systems. Because that would take effort/money that could be devoted to localizing new Final Fantasy games and the like instead.
>>256829408 Considering Japan got that Dragon Quest Anniversary thing on the Wii, they may not see reason to put the GBC games up on the VC when people out there can just play the Wii disc on the WiiU, or something. Or did you mean for the 3DS VC shop instead?
>>256829756 It's really annoying since they love talking about every one of their series. Except Dragon Quest. It's like they really do try to bury the series while no one is looking. >>256829408 None of the Dragon Quest games are on VC. Hell Dragon Warrior VII isn't on PSN. They refuse to even give us fucking ROMs.
Seriously what was the fucking point of this merger? Was Enix in dire straits? I know their team is significantly smaller to Square but shouldn't they have a say when it comes to their own franchise? You'd think after Spirits Within Enix would have stayed the fuck away from them, and instead Square gets to cash-in on their successes.
>>256830528 >The original Square Enix was formed as the result of a merger between Square and Enix. The merger occurred on April 1, 2003 with Enix as the surviving company. Each share of Square's common stock was exchanged for 0.85 shares of Enix's common stock. At the time, 80% of Square Enix staff were made up of former Square Co. employees. As part of the merger, former Square president Yoichi Wada was appointed president of the new corporation, while former Enix president Keiji Honda became its vice president. The founder of Enix, Yasuhiro Fukushima, currently serves as the honorary chairman and largest shareholder of the corporation.
>>256830062 Always did strike me as silly DQ VIII never saw a PSN version (though it's not as if it's expensive or hard to find the PS2 version), yet Square-Enix was more than happy to localize the mobile phone port.
As for Dragon Quest VII, it might be a similar case to Namco, in that neither of the PS1 Tales games we got have seen a PSN release (though I don't think Destiny or Eternia saw a PSN release in Japan either), possibly due to low sales. At least Namco's gotten better about localizing that series, while meanwhile SE has gotten worse regarding Dragon Quest.
>>256830892 >As part of the merger, former Square president Yoichi Wada was appointed president of the new corporation, while former Enix president Keiji Honda became its vice president Why did they think letting Wada be president was a good idea?
>>256830528 The point was 2 folds. One was more capital for their games. You seen it with DQ8, 9, and even an MMO. Enix most likely couldn't do those games without the merger in my opinion. They took the money and used it well. Another reason was a bigger hand in the west. They never really had a big enough grasp in the west to market their games. They might have done well if they kept handing the publishing to Nintendo in the NES era but it's kind of too late for that. But it seem Square turned their backs on that since the only one they even tried to market was 8 and that sold half a million which was the best selling Dragon Quest to date. And if they kept the marketing going it could have done well. But they just stopped. Hell DQ4 and 5 had one page in Nintendo Power and that was it.
>>256831396 I honestly think Square was mad jelly that another company could release a popular RPG series, and they would have just buried them through the merger if they didn't bring in so much dosh in Japan. Do they not bring it to the west because they'd rather not have people realize that Dragon Quest is better than their current FF games than just getting more money? Why doesn't Nintendo foot the publishing bill like they had with the more recent western releases? We wouldn't have even gotten Bravely Default if it wasn't for Nintendo.
>>256832297 Probably since by saying fuck all on the issue, fans are depressed but still hopeful, and might still buy their other products in hopes of eventually seeing at least DQ VII 3DS. Confirming they have absolutely zero interest would likely just cause fan outrage out here and possibly cause a loss in sales of their other products.
>>256833046 Ever since the merger Dragon Quest has been the one thing that have always been making money. Square side on the other hand is always iffy. But for some reason the shareholders keep giving the power to Square all the fucking time.
>>256833219 Is there a fan translation like with PSO2? >>256833276 Nintendo seem to know how to run other companies better than they do. Not saying Nintendo knows how to really run their business but still.
>>256833046 The sad thing is comparing Squaresoft and Early Square-Enix to present Square-Enix. Back then, they had a good amount of franchises (Final Fantasy, World of Mana, SaGa, Chrono, Front Mission, etc) as well as a fair amount of stand alone titles (Xenogears, BFM, Threads of Fate, Radiata Stories, etc), and while not everything made it west, they were still willing to bring a decent amount of stuff over (to the US anyway; Europe and PAL got the shaft at times, and as far as I know still haven't gotten Xenogears out there). These days, regarding the west, they just seem to care about Final Fantasy (and Final Fantasy related games like Bravely Default), Kingdom Hearts, publishing for western games, and pissing off Dragon Quest fans by ignoring the newer games and just shitting out mobile ports of the older ones instead. And even in Japan, some of their older series like SaGa or the Mana games were either dead or mobile only for the foreseeable future last time I checked.
>>256833321 Not sure what you expect him to say. Square clearly doesn't want to localize them and they probably are having issues negotiating publishing rights for the game with Nintendo in the west. They probably didn't make as much money with Bravely Default as they would have liked since Nintendo published so they're pushing for a better deal with DQ but considering past sales of the series Nintendo probably isn't willing to give them a better deal.
As long as there's a DQ thread up, I've got a question. I've seen the DS version of DQVI sitting around at my local vidya store and I was wondering if it's worth picking up. Only other DQ game I've played is IX which I didn't really enjoy.
>>256833775 If Nintendo said "We are still in negotiations." it would be great. Or if they said "out of our hands you have to talk to SE" and they did and they finally answered great. I just hate how everyone is so quiet over it. Like if anyone even mentions it to any of the two they both clam up. >>256833772 Ever since the bomb that is Spirits Within Square lost a lot of money. And so they have been struggling to recapture their golden years. But they seem to be so narrow minded with FF they completely forgot their other fun titles. >>256833804 DS of IV has problems in my opinion. Party Chat being gone really feels like you are missing half a conversation in my mind. And the accents get really annoying really fast. Since accents are never meant to be read. So you see half the word missing to convey the accents and it makes it hard to read. Still fun just that is my problem. DS of V still has some accents but not as heavy as IV plus the Party Chat is there. VI has a really good localization in my opinion but VI is also the black sheep of the Dragon Quest family. Where it's not bad but after 3, 4, and 5 it feels really meh compare to the past games. Still a fun adventure however.
>>256833836 Now my only problem is payment. I guess I will have to buy a Japanese visa gift card and use that. >>256834651 Don't forget how they just sell the cart. They throw out everything because who the fuck needs a manual and box.
>>256834651 They trashed the bulk of their DS cases and manuals months back, so fat chance finding them complete there.
On that note, I know a local store where I live that stocks IV and V DS for $13 and $22 complete respectively and usually sit on the shelf for a few days. Yet when they show up at another store out here for $45+ each, they sell ridiculously fast. Granted, while that second store does seem to try to cater to hipsters with too much money, thus having fairly high prices on anything worth buying (they want a good $70 or so for Xenosaga Episode III, for example), it's like people don't know there's other stores with better prices out here.
>>256834991 I just hope because of SE talk about how happy they are with Bravely Default they would be more willing to bring over Dragon Quest. I mean DQIX sold over a million in just the west which was pretty fucking good.
>>256835408 The thing with the main series DS games is that IV and V DS got shortprinted and suffered from a really low amount of marketing (Square-Enix even bitched about sales of V DS when the shortprint sold out), and as such are a lot more expensive. VI and IX DS had Nintendo handle the printing or something, and as such are generally much more available.
>>256835581 I know. But I was just really annoyed at that statement because we all know they didn't really mean changing the way they work. >>256835604 Why? Doesn't it hurt you just as much? >>256835620 I just never did it before so I have no idea how to pay for it. And until there's a fan translation I don't really want to pay for a game I can't really read.
>>256835696 They liked it. From what I've heard they enjoyed some of the older games but they still really loved it. Just go on Japanese fan art sites and you will see a lot of DQ VIII stuff. Or do you mean 7 since that's what the image was for.
>>256835209 The issue is that Square-Enix seems to like to pick and choose just what "successful" means to them. They'll praise something like Bravely Default's sales (possibly just because it's related to Final Fantasy), but state that over a million worldwide sales of something like Chrono Trigger DS (a port of a game a lot of people have likely emulated or bought the VC/PSN port of the SNES version already; honestly a million sales in light of that doesn't seem bad) isn't enough to warrant continuing the series.
>>256836982 With Tomb Raider I think the issue was that they poured so much into marketing that even 3.5 million sales (at the time they were bitching about it) is deemed a failure to make a profit. Reminds me that some generations back, a game even getting a million sales was considered fucking great.
>>256836982 The problem is that they needed like 6 million copies sold to break even. Which isn't what is needed with Dragon Quest. They already made money in Japan. All that is needed is to localize it and they would see just profit. Hell give it to Nintendo and they wouldn't have to worry about any money lose from it. >>256837045 Oh...goody.
>>256838062 It honestly makes me wonder if Square-Enix has sent something out telling "journalists" and their own western branches to not bother with asking or (in the case of the latter) answering questions about console and handheld Dragon Quest releases, as if they think that by no one discussing it, people will just plain forget they even have new console/handheld games in the series that haven't been localized.
>DQM was my first dragon quest, fell in love with it >DQ 3 was my first of the main series, really loved that too. >Over the years, bought the DS remakes of 4, 5, and 6. Got to enjoy them too >Eagerly awaited a remake of 7, ecstatic when it was announced. >...
>>256838810 Honestly seems that with some companies, low sales (given how Square-Enix on their own pretty much refuses to market the series out here) might as well be no sales, rather than a nice bonus on top of local ones.
The funny thing is that it's not impossible to market a niche game effectively, have reasonable sales expectations, and still make a nice profit (at least enough to keep on localizing). With Square-Enix though, they don't market Dragon Quest, have too high of expectations (though now they seem to just expect handheld/console entries to fail if they brought them over), haven't done a lot to cultivate a fanbase, and at times seem to go out of their way to fuck their own games over, like shortprinting V apparently just to complain about sales when that was their own damn fault.
>>256839816 It really bullshit how they mishandled DQ these past 10 years. At really did seem to do alright with 8 but after that just stopped. DQ IV had a lazy localization to a point where they took out Party Chat. And only one page ad in Nintendo Power. I can't think of anything else they did for that. And V which had a better localization with Party Chat I think still only had one page in Nintendo Power and also short printing the copies.
They seem to try to kill it. Or at least feel a series should always stand on it's own without any marketing. Except if it's FF which they market the fuck out of it.
>>256840504 Even if it was Region free not everyone can read Japanese. Yeah it's fucking stupid but I still would like it if they showed some fucking care for their own series over here. And not just a shitty iOS port of "Dargon Quest" >>256840531 They didn't even make more after the prints ran out. They just saw it run out and bitched about how the sales were too low.
>>256841008 As far as I know they did eventually reprint it, but they did so without fanfare and were generally silent about it, as if they knew they could make more money off it but still needed the illusion that the game flopped out here.
>>256841426 I still have hope for VII but I do feel the spin offs are no go. Which is sad because I never played the Monsters games and felt the Joker series wasn't really great. But heard from everyone that Monsters series is way better than Joker.
>>256841426 >Only print about 350k copies for the west. >Game sells out since fans have long been wanting an actual release of DQ V. >Square-Enix expresses disappointment at it having only sold that many, as if they expected the copies sold to far exceed copies produced.
>>256838565 >Rocket Slime GBA fan translation still stuck at 55%; no official update since 2008. Pretty sure the only one that will ever be in English is the DS one, considering Square-Enix won't localize a spin off game like Rocket Slime 3, let alone even a main series game like Dragon Quest VII 3DS.
>>256842416 Actually the DS is a sequel. GBA was the first. >>256842146 I'm with you. I wish we could somehow just have someone at SE answer questions so we can ask them about Dragon Quest. No one over there is willing and no one on the journalist end is willing to talk to them. It feels like we are forced to question them. But there is no way for us to talk to them.
>>256842068 Either way, the used price went down for a while. Heard it used to be a good $80 or so since demand far outstripped supply. And then Gamestop trashing their DS cases and manuals have since caused the price for complete copies to go back up a fair amount.
>>256843084 It's a really fucking good game. I spent more hours than I should count collecting a bunch of every enemy so there's a nice statue of them. Also in the 3DS there's pirate ship battles instead of normal tank battles.
>>256843551 Same with the GBA version, which at least has a fan translation in the works (only issue is it hasn't seen progress in a long time, and as far as I know the GBA is a bit hard to code translation patches for; character/line limitations or something due to how the game is original coded, and there's only been a handful of completed GBA fan translation patches).
DS game is probably the only one the west will get to play in English.
>>256845089 Pretty sure they're only localizing that since they smelled blood in the water since the PSP fan translation effort pretty much did their job hyping and finding an audience for them. Plus, that's still Final Fantasy, a series they're generally fine with localizing for.
>>256845406 Localization was damn near done and still they abandoned it. You're more than likely right about the fan translation, and instead of just putting a version up on PSN (HD or not), they'd rather force you to buy an all new console.
>Announce an HD version for the Vita >End up saying it was an error
>>256846680 Don't know when they started theirs. Would like to talk to some of the head of that to see if we can work to help us out. Since I heard if they reached 50,000 Namco would consider it. And we are 20% of that.
>>256846680 I don't get it. They're willing to reap the profits in Japan, but they don't want the rest of the world to acknowledge that DQ is better these days? If anything it's a even greater shamfur dispray to try to save face when everybody already knows it.
>>256847020 They are just quiet. Thinking that as long as they don't say anything they won't get a backlash from people. But really it's just pissing us off because we have no idea if they are using the iOS ports as a way to see if we like Dragon Quest or not. If they just said that I feel more people would be open to buy it. Yeah there would be a lot of pissed off people but at least we have a clear idea what is going on at SE considering Dragon Quest. Right now it's up in the air what they are thinking.
>>256847020 They actually bothered to cultivate a rather large western audience for Final Fantasy, to the point where it's pretty much the one JRPG name most people know, even if they're not a huge fan, while Kingdom Hearts has enough western characters from Disney in it to still be really damn popular out here. Unfortunately for Dragon Quest, neither Enix nor post-merger Square-Enix have really bothered to market the games and build up nearly as substantial a western fanbase for them (Nintendo marketing DRagon Quest IX has done a better job than Square-Enix ever really did out here, but Square-Enix isn't inclined to keep the ball rolling), and as of now, Square-Enix doesn't seem inclined to bother with even bringing the newer games over anymore. Not when they can just reuse an old translation and shit out a mobile port of an older game.
>>256847449 I started with 3 way back on the Gameboy color, but I'd say 4, 5, 6 are all good places to start. They are only barely related to each other, so you aren't missing anything by starting on 6, or anything.
Of the three, 5 is definitely my favorite, though.
>>256847629 But he has a point, if you like it, then you would just be in the same boat as us, I suppose.
>>256847629 They are still great games. Even if it will just end up him complaining about it like all of us. >>256847449 3 onward are the best 3: SNES or GBC depending if you care about an extra dungeon in the end 4: I actually prefer the NES only because I personally don't like the DS localization but DS is still very much playable 5: PS2 or DS. DS has an extra girl to marry while the PS2 has a better soundtrack because it's on the PS2 6: DS since it's the only one that is fully localized 7: Hope and prey 3DS version comes out. Since the PSX version (which you can't get on the PSN because fuck you SE) is over 120 hours long.
>>256847449 As far as I know, III, IV, V, and VIII all make good entry points. III has the NES original, a GBC version, and a fan translated SNES version. IV has the NES original and DS version (mileage might vary on the quality due to lack of party chat and heavy accent use in that version). V has fan translations of the SNES original and PS2 remake, with a localized DS version. VIII has a PS2 version and a mobile port; stick with the PS2 original.
>>256847862 Until VII the west didn't even get half the FF games that came out. Once everybody started touting that VII was the greatest game ever made all they needed to do was slap Final Fantasy on it and people would eat it up.
>>256848231 >>256832830 He seem to really love it. It's just that either SE doesn't want them to localize it or Nintendo doesn't want to bother localizing it. Personally I say it's purely SE but I have no idea since neither are willing to talk about it.
>>256848231 As far as I know it's up to Square-Enix if they come over, regardless of what Nintendo wants.
>>256848370 I suppose that's true, but since then they've pretty much had no problem at all with bringing over anything Final Fantasy related. meanwhile with Dragon Quest it's like they stopped caring beyond mobile ports.
>>256848897 I don't know, it's Aeon Genesis doing it and they've got a good amount of completed fan translations. They just seem to take forever doing them, or jump around instead of just sticking to one or two games at a time.
Still wondering when they'll finish Metal Max 2.
But yeah, I do agree that some translators are really lazy. Still waiting for Cless to even make a page specifically for progress on his Tales of Destiny DC fan translation.
Yeah they can go fuck themselves. Those idiots are almost done with SMT if... And then they stopped. They've been translating everything else and skipped around other games. Hell they're the reason SMT I was a glitchy pile. Sorry friend but they're never getting around to it.
>>256849119 Honestly, this sort of treatment towards the western fans has left me wondering how far down the rabbit hole to go, since I don't have a lot of experience with the series yet. As good as the games are likely to be, the farther into it I delve, the more likely I'll probably just wind up as disappointed as the rest of you guys toward Square-Enix.
>>256849819 Out of curiosity, has no one else decided to do their own fan translation of SMT if, or is there some generally unspoken rule that if a game has a fan translation in progress, no one else starts their own for it, even if the original guys have stopped making any real progress?
>>256849827 Capcom are run by fucking idiots too. But they do it by over doing their games. They make nothing but sequel after sequel and drain it until it gives no more. I honestly have no idea how there could still be Mega Man fans after how Capcom treated them since the very start. >>256850115 Honestly I'm happy I got into the series. Yes you might find yourself depressed and angry at SE but it's for the right reason. Anyways people should be annoyed at them after how they handled themselves these 10+ years.
>>256849119 Wouldn't be so bad if region locking wasn't such a bitch. I mean not having it in English would suck but at least you might get to learn an extra language just learning to play your favorite games.
I honestly don't know why they don't just have a massive list of shit and every couple of months customers vote on the shit they want to see localized the most. Like they seem to enjoy all this "direct to the fans" stuff so why not.
I know reggie's mentioned that a thousand likes doesn't mean a thousand sales but at least it would be an easy way to see what people were after
>>256850413 Don't know of any unspoken rule. But I feel that if a group haven't made any progress in over a year I feel it's ok for someone to jump in and finish. But by the way things are going with If... Atlus might release SMT 2 and than If... on iOS like they did with 1.
>>256850931 SE knows people want DQ. Whenever they do something where others can talk to someone of theirs DQ is always mentioned. They just ignore it whenever they can. Just try emailing them about DQ and watch. They would either not respond at all or give a no replay replay. Like "we have many series we are bring over"
>>256852241 Its simple when you think about it. Everyone in Japan has a phone, they need it to survive. If you can have games on it and dont have to carry another device with you you are going to choose that option.
3DS is now for little kids and the vita for the disgusting anime fans
>>256852141 I actually would be fine if they agree to localize the 3DS DQ over here even if they said it would only be digital. Yeah I would have love to have a physical copy but honestly I'm at a point I would take a digital copy over nothing at all. >>256852241 Trains. Also they do everything on their phones. But honestly I feel it's so over saturated with free shit that it can't really stand for long. Too many people that play phone games are fine with .99 or free shit to even bother with anything more. And most gamers that are willing to pay more won't because they are too focused on handheld and consoles. There's no real market for $20 phone games like what SE is selling.
>>256853091 Ignore him. Really it's because everyone has a phone and feel that it's good enough. But as I said >>256853081 I really don't believe the mobile market can stand. It's too over saturated with shit like in 1983 but one big difference. There's no one like Nintendo that can step in and handle the quality control needed to fix this. The only thing Apple and other smart phone providers will do is fix the free to play model but only because they are scared of getting sued over that shit. But outside that they don't want to have anything to do with the store. That's why all you see if a massive amount of clones. There's nothing stopping them from just keep cloning anything that is remotely successful.
>>256853765 They can't copy and past the script from the PSX version. Almost everything is different. They would need to start from scratch. And DQ7 is a massive game. Just wish if they started the translation process they could say it and we would shut up.
>>256854342 Dialog changed. Some people says something slightly different. There's a good number of things that are different than in the PSX version. At least enough they can't just import the PSX script into the 3DS version. >>256854152 Maybe. Just think that a lot of the big company would feel like it's not worth it to make games for it. At least outside a cheap mobile port. And I agree that smartphones could never replace handhelds.
>>256854665 Goddammit I had convinced myself that I didn't want this game anyways by completely avoiding any videos of it, and now I watched this. With all the other stuff I've heard about it it sounds like my dream MMO, but I guess we can't have nice things.
>>256855589 A strong story driven MMO that's worth a damn. Plays like a DQ game more so than a typical MMO Not a WoW clone Great evolution of the DQ battle mechanics and decent party interaction Freedom to customize your characters how you want (no stock standard class archetypes) Heaps of extra content (dat murder mystery scenario) Great community
>>256856323 >No Crystal Chronicles on the WiiU/3DS >No Chocobo Dungeon >The last Tactics game was a port of War of the Lions to fucking iOS >Final Fantasy 13: Now with 300% more Lightning edition selling worse than any game in the series has in a longass time >Meanwhile, 6 DQ games and counting not coming out in the US
>>256857142 New Dragon Quest Monster AND Dragon Quest XI is in the works. Just more games that Square love to talk to the Japanese about because it funds FF. But nothing for us because it might hurt their sales.
>>256858540 It comes from a different era, where a JRPG's length is directly proportional to it's quality. The game is fucking 80 hours long if you speedrun it. That's not good game design. It's protracted for the sake of being protracted.
>>256859553 3 and so? The game felt fine without the battles. There's a clear explanation and you got a nice bit of world building from it. And after that you got your battles with more story to it. It at least explains why monsters are around.
Yeah. The setup and paywall is/was pretty annoying to overcome. Recently, Japan removed their IP lock on DQX which has a lot of people questioning the possibility of a localization. There isn't much else to go on at this point.
>>256862267 Aw don't quit then. Remember after you do it for a month it starts to become a routine and by than you don't even know you just spent an hour studying. I'm only on week two and hoping I don't hit a wall.
>>256862540 I've been doing it for nearly a year. Because I have such a bad memory, I'm still not at a point where it's even remotely usable outside of games where the menu is Katakana, and that's because that shit's easy
>>256862680 Katakana seem to be a bit annoying. Mostly because it's like English but in a fucked up way because of how limited their language is. I only just kind of started building my vocab deck and haven't an annoying time remembering them.
>>256863583 Well it takes about 2 years. And that's if you really go all out for those 2 years. I'm just studying 1 hour or so a day. One part kanji and another part grammar. Once I finish grammar I'll start actually read and hope to have a better understand of the grammar.
If Square Enix doesn't want to do it, there are plenty of publishers who would jump at the chance to localize these games for them. I'm sure if Square Enix would pledge exclusivity, both Sony and Nintendo would gladly help fund the development and marketing of these games, since it's a major series in Japan.
>>256866817 Funding to develop it isn't the problem. It's just them agreeing to bring it over. Nintendo spoken happily about bring them over. Reggie showed how much he love the series. It's just that SE doesn't feel like bring them over. So they just keep deny them to bring it over.
>>256869439 But that's the thing ever since 2000 onward they just stopped all there other series. So it's just a battle between Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy has never been better than Dragon Quest in my opinion.
>>256869876 Nigga I liked Final Fantasy. Liked. 1-10 were all varying degrees of good, 12 was dumb because of Vaan getting shoehorned in and the game literally being able to play itself with Gambits, and then from 13 they just started going full retard.
And then they started blatantly ignoring and mistreating their other popular series which did have a growing fanbase in the west.
>>256870417 Don't get me wrong, I agree with everything you said about FF.. but from what I've heard about DQ, it just doesn't seem that amazing... but I'm only in it for the story, anyway. >>256870071 I'm 24 and just want a story that can keep my attention and isn't generic.
>>256870756 Dragon Quest has always had a great story. It's just that Dragon Quest doesn't slap you in the face with it. You are on an adventure and so you have to go out of your want to understand the story. Talk to NPCs and get a feeling of world building. That's why Dragon Quest has always been better than FF in story telling.
>>256871281 Those are Metal Slime Knights. The Metal Slime are not actually that great while allows the Knights to ride the Metal Slimes. Explains why they don't give as much EXP as normal Metal Slimes.
>>256871329 People that say Dragon Quest never has a story doesn't understand how Dragon Quest tells it's story. They do it in a more handoff way. Though NPCs and exploring. Not saying FF is horrible just that I feel they are too forceful in how they do their story. And more times than not the story isn't all that great so you are force to sit through a massive amount of cut scenes to get their story.
Square Enix logic: >They didn't buy a port of DARGOON'S QUEST FOUR, an 8 year old port of a 22 year old game? I GUESS THE WEST HATES DRAGON QUEST THEN >DARGOON'S QUEST SOLD A LOT ON IOS? NEW IOS PORT OF A REMAKE THAT WAS ALREADY MADE!! >Dargon's Quest 9 sells a million copies in the west, a TON for a franchise that previously had a much smaller following >We are disappointed to see DARGOON'S QUEST NINE selling so poorly. We will never rerease DARGOON'S QUEST in dirty foreign land again. >Bravely Default has sold 500k! It's a HUGE success! THANK YOU DIRTY FOREIGNERS >We have printed 350k copies of DARGOONS QUEST VI and it only sold 350k. >The World Ends With You sells way more ouside of Japan than in Japan >STUPID FOREIGNERS HAVE NO TASTE. NO SEQUEL, EVER.
Fuck these Japanese niggers. I hate Square Enix so much
