Hopefully no one read the title and expected them as announced games - If so, terribly sorry D:
I know Square Enix hasn't shown any interest in the 3DS VC so far, but is anyone else hoping for them to release some old GBC DQ games?
GBC was a good platform for DQ games. Dragon Quest 3 and Dragon Quest Monsters 2:Cobi/Tara were my favourites, but DQ1+2 and DQM were also released on the platform - and one of those is getting a remake for the 3DS. Anyone else hoping for these to be released, or are Dragon Quest fans as rare here as 3DSWare on the eShop? :3

It would be nice but none of the DQ games have been released in this fashion. I think it's equal parts brand protection(they can sell expensive collections) and artistic integrity. I think they prefer to update and revise the past games.

Also can't wait for the DQM remake!

I'd love to have these, yeah. Hopefully we'll see 'em pretty soon.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

I cant wait for it either - but I would have much prefered the sequel to be the one remade. I prefered the story, using keys as opposed to gates, exploring lots of random worlds, not automatically getting every boss you fight to join you, and how it used fresh characters.

Well Square made NDS remakes of 4,5 &6 so no doubt they would rather remake the others than release them on Virtual Console.

Eventually, but first S-E has to release the collection over here.

Well, they didn't make very many games on GB/GBC combined.
Square only four games, all released in English with the Final Fantasy name slapped on.
Enix made DQ1+2, DQ3, DQ Monsters, 2 versions of DQ Monsters 2. And that's all they could release on VC.
(and only two more they could release in Japan, possibly: Dungeon Land and Star Ocean: Blue Sphere. And 3 license games: Nangoku Shonen Papuwa-kun, Mahoujin Guruguru and Command Master.)

Perhaps - but other developers have added or started adding their collections despite only releasing a few. Besides, the games would be popular none the less. Releasing all of the games you mentioned would already get most of them to the top of the current VC scale.

KingMike: Out of the Enix GB titles, DQ Monsters was localized and released by Eidos, so that might be a challenge for SqEnix to do on VC. The rest were released by Enix USA (with me translating).

@Dinsdale: Square-Enix owns Eidos so they wouldn't have any trouble releasing DQ Monsters.

Oh wow, so they are. Since only a couple years ago, too.
I think Enix USA was still getting up and running under Paul Handelman, so they licensed out DQM to Eidos.
Once Enix USA was properly set up with a working staff Enix Japan gave them the localizing & publishing reins for North America.

Well if they offered up the DW1+2 and DW3 carts and the original DQ Monsters I'd have a very hard time not buying them as they were total fun.

Well, that's a nice coincidence for them.
Like Ogre Battle for SNES. Enix America licensed the game from Quest, and it only be many years later they would end up owning Quest.

I own DQ3 for GBC. It's good, but difficult.
