Dragon Quest 8

5 replies 250 views Edited May 6, 2013

I am highly disappointed to see all these great PS2 games being released on PSN with no word of Dragon Quest 8, which imho is the greatest RPG of all time, anyone feel the same?

Who knows. There are plenty of PS2 games that would be great as PS2 classics, but it's really up to the original devs.

Dragonquest has been a Nintendo exclusive for a while now. But that may change...

Square Enix and Nintendo Abandon Dragon Quest in North America

At the June 2013 E3 video games expo, no new Dragon Quest titles were featured or even mentioned. This seems to indicate that Square Enix and Nintendo are abandoning Dragon Quest in North America and Europe, based on the poor sales of Dragon Quest X on the Wii U in Japan. While it is possible that the 3DS remake of Dragon Quest VII might eventually be released worldwide, no titles are being identified as in development with a targeted western release. Due to mis-management and a poor decision in making Dragon Quest X an online-only, subscription game, North America and Europe are entering a second "dark age" for Dragon Quest similar to 1992-1999. This wiki will move into a mostly hibernation state due to lack of new available content. All of the momentum generated by the strong Dragon Quest IX sales in the summer of 2010 has been wasted by a Square Enix team that could not capitalize on its success in the larger western market."

This thread should be in the RPG games section...

How will that change just because the games aren't coming to the West? Nintendo has a death grip on DQ, you'll keep seeing them on the 3DS for years to come. Whether they make it to the West or not doesn't change that fact~.
