@chipia Bosses are going to rip you up if you keep avoiding enemies in your environments.

In general, though, yes, it's not a tremendously difficult game. Most of the difficulty that is there comes later on.

If you want a game where random encounters will kick your butt, I recommend picking up the SMT III HD Remaster that's coming out next year.

Today is Dragon Quest's 35th anniversary stream.

Any hope for a Dragon Quest Heroes I & II western release?

We also had those DQ IX Remake for Switch rumors floating around a couple years ago.

I'm a bit surprised they haven't ported over IV, V, and VI. They have mobile ports of those and the DS versions are stupid expensive.

Give me a heads-up if you're going to send a request please.

@Magician Multiple sources are reporting that the live stream will take place on the 27th. Are you referring to some other stream? If I'm wrong, I'd be obliged if you would share the link 😊

@COVIDberry

Nope, you're right.

My fault.

Someone'll of course post it again when we get to the stream day, but here it is, so you can mark it on your calendar.

I need them to announce a slime matcha bowl so I can complete my set.

Oh and um games too.

Oooo they announcing new games?

I want DQ8 remake for Switch and DQ12 on PS5, although I'm guessing PS5 may be a bit of a stretch given how few there are in Japan. They might do PS4/PS5 cross-gen though?

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

@Slowdive I own the DS games but I would much rather have them on the Switch (i imported the hard copy of I-II-III as well 😁). I've even thought about selling the DS games because of how much they go for now. But I figure if I do that and they never come out on Switch then I'd have mondo seller's remorse.

So that DQ 35th Anniversary stream. It had its ups and downs.

DQ "eraser" puzzle game for mobile. Meh
DQX Online Ver. 6, "No plans for worldwide release." 😢
DQX Offline. No official western release, but I'm hopeful that this it is how the west is getting DQX.
DQ III HD-2D Remake. Cool, I would've preferred DQ IX HD-2D, but I'll take it.
DQ Treasures. Looks to be an open world action/adventure spinoff, pretty cool.
DQ XII. Probably will be an Unreal Engine 5 game for PS5, XSX, and PC. Yeaaaaaaars away from now.

Well, maybe they're going to do remakes like that for the rest, too, @Magician .... Or just remasters, etc? Not sure about the treasures one yet but maybe! Ditto the DQX offline version

@Magician the big disappointment is they have not dated anything so we don't even know if any of those new games are coming next year (DQ XII for sure at way way later than that)

I'd wager there's a better than even chance DQ XII will hit a Nintendo platform. That's where their strongest audience is after all. Probably not the Switch, or at least not the base model though.

Biggest take away might be how they described DQ XII as "Dragon Quest for adults". "We're changing the command battle system, while keeping portions of command battle." Are we talking about an action/rpg mainline DQ here? In any case, it seems their refusal to mention platforms during the presentation has added more fuel to the Switch Pro discussion.

It's probably in such early stages they're not sure if it'll be on Switch or the successor ..... I'm certainly up for an ARPG darker themed DQ game, anyway, so I'll look forward to hearing more about it, sometime next year, lol

I'm glad we have something on DQ XII, even if it is several years out. They didn't reveal much, but Horii's commentary on some of the planned changes was interesting.

In terms of solid footage, the big winner for me was DQ III HD-2D. I have yet to play anything in Octopath's visual style outside of demos, but MAN is it beautiful. I'm very glad I haven't played a version of III yet since this seems like this'll be THE definite version. Same with the first two DQs as well if the hints dropped during the stream are anything to go by.

I realize receiving the full Dragon Quest X MMO in the West is very likely never happening, but I do hope the offline version eventually migrates over. Unlike the "Version 6" announcement, I have yet to see anything that concretely suggests this is Japan-only.

I wonder how much darker & "adult" DQXII will be compared to other entries.

I'm not inherently against it, but that seems to be exactly the same direction the next mainline FF is going too, so it'd be kind of redundant to go there with both of their big RPG franchises.

It depends on how much content is being transplanted into the the offline version. The first few versions, or all the way up to version 6? Ten years of mmo text being translated into (how many languages were subbed and dubbed in the 35th Anniversary broadcast?) several different languages. If it is intended for a western release, we'll be lucky to get in 2025. Maybe later.

I'm okay with some darkness in games if it's handled well. As long as they keep the series' signature DQ flavor and don't go for "So dark it's 'edgy'", I don't see it as a problem. Time will tell I suppose.

I'm expecting it to be a sort of "lite" version of the game without some chunks of content. The amount of language translations did cross my mind (I believe they said during the stream that the presentation was being broadcast in six languages?), so I agree that this is a ways out if it's even coming West at all. 🤞

@Tyranexx I know, right?! I was all but screaming when I saw the absolute treatment it was given. I wanted to try out Dragon Quest III for a while but I’m going to wait for this release.

Consider as well, the fact that it’s a remake. Not a remaster or a port; it’s a remake from the ground up. I knew this when seeing the 3D environments but also in comparison shots. This may also mean we get additional features like more content, spruced up music and more.
