What? No thread on Dragon Quest ????

OK so its the 30th anniversary of the series and I for one am totally excited about all the games coming out. I'm currently playing DQ6 and I finished DQ Heroes earlier this year. Who else is hyped!!!

Upcoming games include:

DQ7 (remake)

DQ8 (remaster)

DQ10

DQ Heroes 2 (delayed I think)

 

I know I'll get punched for comparing FF to DQ but I personally feel that DQ is wayy better than the current FF spinoffs etc.

Honestly I've never played anything in this series, maybe its time that I should! I remember wanting to get DQVIII on PS2 but this was back in the days when I couldn't afford to buy many video games so I never did.

Same here, I remember thinking that one looked really cool when it came out!

The games on DS are really enjoyable; more lighthearted than FF. Definitely good value time sinks.

Oh, definitely excited, esp. For DQ 10. Never thought we'd see that in the West.

P.S. I think it's actually DQ 11?

Dragon quest is a series I've never touched. Are they all coming to Vita?

I've got all the older DQs for the Nintendo DS.
AFAIK, DQ7 + 8 are coming to the 3DS only.
PlayStation gets DQ Builders and Heroes for all consoles except PSTV.

Yeah these are mostly 3DS and DS games like woolywol said.

Im totally hanging out for DQ Builders too...so hyped!

Woolywol, you said you have all the older Dqs for the DS. I'm so jealous. Wish i had the hindsight to have actually purchased them all. Now they're all so rare and I only have DQ6 :(

Never owned a handheld.  I have Dragon Quest The Journey of the Cursed King on PS2 & Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe & the Blight Below on PS4.  Also looking forward to Dragon Quest Builder's looks like a cross between Dark Cloud & Minecraft.

I'm really excited about DQ Builders too! I reckon this could be a big success on the Vita.

 

Oh, they're rare now? Goodness me. I bought mine only about 2-3 yrs. ago.

Actually, there were only DQ 4, 5 and 6 and also 9 published here for the DS - AFAIK.

I'm really surprised because I remember seeing great numbers of DQ IX floating around when I bought mine - some retailers kept discounting it again and again, presumably because they had so much stock.

And the DQM Jokers games, got those too.

I hate how many 3ds/ds games become rare.

I'm pretty sure I'm right nut double checking, DS games were all region free right?

Yeah all the DS games were region free.  

 

Any 3DS game I really really want I make sure to buy before it starts to become scarce, because it's just so hard to know how rare they're going to become.

 

On DQ games though, I have the DS games as well and really enjoy them.  I'm looking forward to getting VII on 3DS soon not so sure on DQ Builders though, I'm sure it will be good just not sure if it's something I'll have the time for.

DQ:XIII releases on 3DS this week - anyone grabbing? I'm not into turn based battle systems so much any more however random encounters have been disabled so that you can choose to attack an enemy in the wild so that might turn the tables for me. 

 

It does look pretty good:

Had it on preorder since it was announced!
Very pleased and excited we're getting so much DQ goodness now in the West. There is also DQ 10 and 11 coming to the Switch.

While I won't be getting it till I beat some more games it is on my one day list. The no random encounters is a big positive

kinda odd that it releases on Saturday - weekend releases are not something I'm familiar with. Wonder if couriers will still deliver on the day or if they will charge extra?

bit bummed to read that there won't be 3d support either. Not a deal breaker I guess but games like Monster Hunter, Xenoblade and Zelda OoT look stunning with the 3d enabled even if the rest of the graphics are a bit naff in places (xenoblade is fairly awful for instance). 

 

Im also playing final fantasy explorers which isn't 3d so know what to expect I guess. No biggie.
