Square Enix Could Localize Dragon Quest X If There’s Enough Fan Support

Square Enix has revealed that the lengthy massively multiplayer online RPG Dragon Quest X could come to the west if fan support is deemed strong enough. Square Enix’s Noriyoshi Fujimoto was answering fans questions at the recent PAX West and one fan asked about the possibility of localising the game. Fujimoto admitted that it would be a large task but it would be possible if fan support was as big as it was for Dragon Quest VII. I guess there’s a possibility that we could eventually get the Nintendo NX version which is in development.

    1. I’d love this to come overseas then we would have all the dragon quest games minor the games 1 – 3 but we got roms for that .

  1. I smell a heap of BS coming from SE! People were asking for this game for years, but now they wait until now! Even if they bring it to the west they took too long, even if they release it they won’t support it because there won’t be that many people interested, because majority of people have moved on to better online MP games! They should have released this when fans were literally asking for a western release, but I forgot SE only localize titles in the west when they want to make a quick cash grab:D Square Enix is beginning to act similar to how Konami acted at the very start of Konami’s BS downfall, Microtransations in a single player campaign sounds a lot like Konami to me, or did they think everyone would forget about that recent BS stunt they pulled in Deus Ex MD:/

  2. Hey SE, how about giving fans A new Parasite Eve game! I’m pretty sure SE received more demand for A new Parasite Eve than anything else! This is proof that even when fans tell companies what they want these companies aren’t really paying attention:/ “Square Enix Could Localize Dragon Quest X If There’s Enough Fan Support” yeah that’s a load of crap, these companies aren’t paying attention even when millions are showing support for games directly to these companies.

  3. I’ve watched several LP’s on DQX, and honestly its not a game I could get into. And I’m a huge DQ fan. The game looks nice, but other than that its really just your standard MMO, nothing special about it at all. And half of the charm of DQ games are the turn based battles, which nobody does anymore. So I think I’d pass even if it came.

      1. MMO’s have not evolved at all. WoW at it’s peak is still the the best an MMO has ever been. The Elder Scrolls was extremely bland and disappointing. FF14 was ok at first, I sank about 60 hours into that game, but it soon grew stale as well because of the weak story and lack of challenge. The only part of the game that offered a challenge was end game bosses. This game, DQ10 also looks to fall into the same bland catagory. No evolution, no risk taking. Why couldn’t they keep turned based battles? That would have made the game VERY unique when compared to other MMO’s! In fact, an MMO with turned based battle sounds fantastic. But nope, they too chicken… So end result, bland MMO with nothing unique about it.

            1. And be very careful, not only is this your last chance, but your speaking with a MMO veteran having played the genre for 16 years on many, many, many different mmos. So if you dont want me making you look like a fool. You best do some actual research into the game, before you make another response.

              1. Be very careful? Haha, I dont care what you have to say about me. I think the game looks bland, and my opinion on that is not likely to change. I’m also a veteran to MMO’s and I’ve been playing them since the first days of WoW.. Out of curiosity from your last comment, I did go back and rewatch some DQX footage. It appears I was incorrect about the turn based battles, but to be fair I was watching the game late at night in Japanese. While I applaud them for keeping turn based battles, MMO’s in general do not interest me anymore. I’m just burnt out on the genre as a whole.

                However I am excited for DQXI. Now that is a good looking game… Assuming they don’t change the formula too much… I know, hypocritical right?

  4. Greetings DQ fans!

    I’ve been doing some research with Square Enix Support in an effort to get Dragon Quest X localized. I’ve had some pretty good success so far. Square Enix communicated to me that if they see enough support tickets requesting Dragon Quest X, they will consider the localization. They have been very helpful and even offered to put me in contact with their developers, so this campaign has some realistic weight to it.

    What I will need you to do is go to the Square Enix support page for any Dragon Quest game (for example, here’s the one for Dragon Quest IX https://t.co/7wtaGp04gN ) and create a support ticket.

    Here are the steps:
    1. For Contact category choose Products & Services and for Contact Sub-Category choose Product Specifications.
    2. Enter a subject line under contact details, and keep it to under 40 characters. For example: “DQX”.
    3. Hit Next. On the next page, hit Next again. Now choose Proceed to Email Support.
    4. Enter in your contact information. Enter your email address twice. If you plan on creating multiple support tickets, please use a different email address per support ticket.
    5. In 4000 characters or less, write a polite message to support asking for Dragon Quest X’s localization. Once you submit your ticket draft you can preview it or edit it. Once you are satisfied, click Submit.

    Please keep the message focused on Dragon Quest X for this campaign. If this experiment works then we can try focusing on other DQ games in the future. We can really do this! Thank you for your support.

    P.S. MyNintendoNews please put my campaign at the forefront of this. :)

  5. Mhm. Suuure. Just like you guys would make another Chrono Trigger if we showed support for a new one & that was around the time you guys released Chrono Trigger DS which I’m pretty sure did very well. So where the fuck is our Chrono Trigger sequel!?

    Yeah. I’m calling bullshit on this.

    1. No, wait. They waited a year or 2, or was it 3, after Chrono Trigger DS released before they said “if we see support for a Chrono Trigger sequel, by you guys going out & buying more, we might consider making a sequel.”

      They are pulling roughly the same bullshit with this that they pulled with Chrono Trigger.

    1. They need to revive Chrono Trigger, too. And this time with an actual direct sequel as Chrono Cross should be considered an alternate future type of deal since it doesn’t explain if Crono & them saved his mother & it leaves Magus/Janus’ fate up in the air. :/
