Dragon Quest thread
Gather around DQfans
Today is DQ day because we are getting a game after 5 years.
So fellow DQ fans what are you going to do?
And why its okay to localize now and not the 3DS games?
because the PS4 is a console that people who and has a huge market at the moment plus it needs games. I've already pre ordered my copy of heroes ages ago on ps3 cant wait to play that shit soon. hope it sells well
They always pushed it as am ARPG over musou. The main difference I've seen is this game has an MP system and outside of the SQUAREx4Triangle etc combo system each character has special abilities tied to holdbutton+corresponding face button that uses MP.
>waiting forever for DQVII/X
>get DQ Heroes instead and don't own a PS4 because noRPGs
Well this is fucking weird. And yet, I'm happy. At the end of the day, its fucking Dragon Quest and it is coming over here. I'm probably gonna get a PS4 years from now when it has more games that I want, and this game will be one I'm getting(and FFXV if its actually good).
For those who already own a PS4 for whatever reason, have fun with it. Looks good.
if it sells like shit and causes SE to ignore us for years again I'll be sad though
every single Nintendo one released after DQVI/Joker 2.
so all 4 of the 3DS games and Dragon Quest X.
Theatrhythm isn't out yet so who knows on that one.
Square makes no sense. No sense at all.
After Bravely Default and FFX HD outsell Lightning Returns, they pledge to support more old-style RPGs.
And Dragon Quest IX sold really well over here.
But they still drag their feet on this shit. What's their goddamn deal?
SE has been weird lately.
Honestly I don't get it but at least this is a step in the right direction. Although it feels more like a hop than a step as they sorta passed over like 5 fucking games.
keep fighting the good fight.
Honestly I'd be fine with an eshop exclusive release of VII at this point.
Oh boy all those songs are in the game
The streamer just went through the DQ5 battle theme
>After Bravely Default and FFX HD outsell Lightning Returns
Only XHD did
LR sold 1.4 million, it's getting a PC release in a few weeks.
BD just sold 1 million, X/X-2HD sold 1.8 million, X/X-2 is getting a PS4 release soon.
> they pledge to support more old-style RPGs.
Well they have to make them first, Bravely Second isn't even out yet, and they are bringing over one of the most requested games that wasn't released during 7th gen first which is FF Type-0 along with an XV demo, then after that Bravely Second releases in like April which is around when we should hear of a localization announcement, and from now with the DQH stuff they just said they have some more plans for a "brighter future" for DQ and how to handle it in the west.
Theatrhythm DQ will probably come over next.
>Well they have to make them first,
The Dragon Quest games in >>284689058
I see no reason not to include them in their "pledge."
also, what's the sauce for those numbers? Last I saw, LR was nowhere near a million.
alena was always ahead of the metagame
picking on the clothie in the back?
say goodbye to your sternum
>And why its okay to localize now and not the 3DS games?
Wait what 3DS games? I only know about the DQX port. Have there been other titles?
That's DQ8. The image says DQ8. Is being a retard a new maymay I'm not familiar with?
>mfw SE already forgot about baka gaijin for this game
>This shit gets localized
>Dragon Quest VII isn't
I DON'T WANT A FUCKING MUSOU YOU FUCKING GOOKS
I got one worse
>Heroman as Joseph Carter "Joey" Jones
>I'm getting turned on by fucking coffee boy
theyre all super samey, but still entertaining somehow
1-charming but depricated
3-best in the series? definitely the best of the old style
4-best characters, some of the best music, good place to start
5-considered the best of the SNES era, no argument here
6-worst of the snes era, its still a good game
7-didn't play it
8-I found it to be average, has nice tits and the overworld is nice if you aren't burnt out on mmos
9-a single player game made with an mmo engine. absolute worst villain
Yeh just like One Piece PW sold like shit so much that it got a localized sequel on PS3 too, right?
Stop deluding yourself, PS4 is only a dudebro console right now because there are no big Japanese games on it yet, just like PS3 was dudebro until all the weeb games too.
Also PS2s highest selling games are all "dudebro" games too yet it got a ton of JRPGs
And Hyrule Warriors is Zelda, we get it you will defend this game to the death as a true DQ game despite being as much of a Dragon Quest game as Pokemon Trozei is a Pokemon game.
There was actually a boss which was made harder.
Other than that I only got wiped out once during the game, and didn't really grind. I don't think it was made easier though, just less battles needed to level up jobs.
>And Hyrule Warriors is Zelda,
Yes, another game Nintendo fags praise endlessly but only until DQ Heroes was announced.
>Pokemon Trozei is a Pokemon game.
That doesn't even have any original Pokemon devs making the game
DQ Heroes is a game lead by Horii, it's a real Draon Quest game in the same exact vain as any other DQ game he's made, sotp being in denial.
Top 16 best selling games on PS2 worldwide.
Gran Turismo 3
Gran Turismo 4
NFS Underground 2
Medal of Honor Frontline
Crash Wratch of Cortex
Madden NFL 2004
The PS2 mainly had people who were hard core into games, the PS4 has all the people who bought the Wii and are into iPhone games.
>Yes there were, its literally the same situation as DQ Warriors.
No it isn't, Pokemon Trozei was made by Genius Sonority who only have done Pokemon spinoffs like Colluseum, XD and Revolution, Pokemon Typing, it's not any of the actual real main series Pokemon game devs.
DQ Heroes was lead by Horii the same as other DQs are.
Those PS4 top sellers are the same exact audience as the PS2 top sellers, and none of the big Japanese games are even out yet.
Stop deluding yourself, none of those PS4games are Wii or iOS tier.
The PS2 had tons of casuals yes but most of them only used it as a DVD player
explaining the large amount of sales for the system in the west, but the PS4 is full of casuals who buy shit like what I posted which makes Square think all their games need to top all those.
AAA titles were just good back then anon
>mfw NFS Underground
>mfw MoH Frontline
Very faithful to the original, with some improvements.
I'm already working as a software engineer for a Japanese company, just getting transferred to Tokyo.
This so much, I want both DQM games more than almost anything right now.
Bloodborne and Dragon Quest Heroes are the only games that I'm even remotely interested for on the PS4 though
>but the PS4 is full of casuals who buy shit like what I posted
Yes? Games with the same audience as GTA? Meanwhile the second highest selling game on PS4 is GTA too, and CoD only became big during 7th gen which is also the same as the GTA audience, same as Watch Dogs, Assasins Creed etc
>I'm already working as a software engineer for a Japanese company
Eh could be worse I guess. At least you'll always in front of a computer. Would recommend packing light. Tokyo housing is fugging tiny.
Yeah I had the same situation, but when I got overseas there was a sudden expectation to stay until your supervisor left, so you often stayed overtime. If you leave early, or on-time I guess, your co-workers would give you the stink eye. Granted, I don't work in computer engineering, and I actually don't mind it. I would say the work environment though is entirely about the group, and not you. I'm sure you'll be fine, but I would definitely expect some overtime.
>Hurr Hurr know it all hurr
I think you will find that VIII was the best by far anon. Or did you perhaps actually enjoy the shit fest that was IX that was recently released on a babby handheld?
Today is a good day, even if it's just a spin-off.
>Been watching The Hero Yoshihiko and the Demon Lord's Castle
>Really want to play some Dragon's Quest
>Reminded that Square Hates Money and won't Localize DQ7 or any of the Monsters games
Start with 3. 1 and 2 are missing a lot of things that the rest of the series had and might turn off newer players. 3 really set the standard for everything that follows.
Plus it's really fucking good.
I'd reccomend the fan translation of the SNES version of the GBC version.
I thought IX was good. I love it because of the class based system like three where i can pretty much 100% customize my party to my liking. The story isn't as strong, but it's all about the game play here, and it is fantastic. I just don't like the shoehorned multiplayer shit they tried to do.
isnt it out tomorrow? maybe other characters could still appear
It's a musou game
They are always really boring to watch
Just look at the zelda threads
>this shit looks boring, you always do the same
>hey it's fun to play and not as boring as I thought
Watching Musou games is boring
>Today is DQ day because we are getting a game after 5 years.
What are you on about? Seems like Musou/Warriors games are released every other month in the west. I'll continue patiently waiting for a DQ game to be released over here.
This. Completely irrelevant that we're getting this when we've gotten all Musou spin-offs and titles since Warriors Orochi Z's release was cancelled.
Until SE localise one of the unreleased DQ games they can go fuck themselves.
They act as if they are unaware there are fans that would do a professional job with the translation, and would do it for pennies.
All they would want is their name at the end under translator.
Watch Sony pull this with Persona 5 too. Not that they have to, since the PS4 is the fastest selling console of all time. But hey, there's no such thing as selling too fast. They could kick it up a notch
Since DQXI is going to be a big-budget game, SE will want to release that in as many territories as possible. Heroes is probably the first of a bunch of DQ things coming west in an attempt to renew interest in the series. We might see some of the GB titles on the eShop, and either the VII remake or VII on PSN.
>the only game they are releasing overseas is the one on the console with no region lock
>still skimming through the DQ thread from this morning on my phone while commuting, bitching about not getting this
>suddenly see this thread
>Google that shit
This is awesome. Shame about the fucking VII remake, and, well, everything else really.
>mfw we get the game
>mfw playing Theatrhythm to THIS
So all of you getting DQ Heroes, whether it's importing or waiting for the localization. Who are you gonna use in battle?
Looking at some gameplay, it seems you can choose whoever you want.
I'm probably gonna just roll with my favorite characters, and the protagonist.
>Male DQ Heroes main character
>Fucking musou garbage
>Half of the cast has never even been in a western DQ
I can guarantee you this has everything with Hyrule Warrirors being a hit and nothing to do with Squeenix wanting to localize more DQ games. If anything the only thing this will encourage is more musou shit and we'll still never get another console Dragon Quest game until the end of fucking time.
