    Dragon Quest VII and VIII headed westward according to director Yuji Horii

    Whilst an official announcement has not been made by Square Enix, at Japan Expo in Paris, France, director Yuji Horii reportedly confirmed that both Dragon Quest VII and Dragon Quest VIII are planned for release on Nintendo 3DS outside of Japan. Horii reportedly stated that they'd be available "in French", since he was presenting to a predominantly French audience, but that should indicate English as well.

    --

    Although I haven't got into the Dragon Quest franchise -- I do own both IX and VI on DS -- I am very interested in seeing the 3DS remake of VII make its way to PAL regions. It'll be the first time that it'll be officially available in PAL regions as the PlayStation original only released in Japan and North America.

    Overall, we've had quite a few Japanese-related announcements recently with my three highlights being Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth's localisation, Zero Escape 3 entering development and now Dragon Quest VII being "planned" for release outside of Japan.

    What do you think? Are you interested in either Dragon Quest VII or VIII for Nintendo 3DS?

    and looks like DQ11 is a console game. It might be a PS3/PS4 version.

    They can do a PS3/PS4 in Japan then PS4 in the West. I don't think this will be a PS4 exclusive.

    DQ7 was something. I have it on the PS1. The graphics were pretty bad, the story was cheesy, The great hero Melvin made me angry. The secret last boss is god and it was about 120 hours to get to him. The gameplay must have been fun since I sunk so many hours into it but I don't think I'd pick it up again on 3DS.

    DQ8 though was really good. I would pick that up.

    While I'm excited about potentially playing them again I'd love for a PS4 remaster. I know I know, folks are tired of 'remakes' but those two games are the exception. I love my 3DS but, for the millionth time, I am growing tired of the sub-SD resolution, muddy textures and overall lacking gameplay vs the options given to me by more modern interfaces and hardware. (Gaming PC + Steam, PS4, etc)
    Add me folks!
