Maybe, just maybe...

In January this year, Japanese DS owners rejoiced at being able to buy yet another Dragon Quest game in the form of Dragon Quest VI, a conversion of the Super Famicom original that never saw release outside the Land of the Rising Sun. It seems the DS remake won't suffer the same fate though, if a recently-discovered set of trademark filings is to be believed.

Although the trademarks don't refer to Dragon Quest VI in exact terms, the marks "NEL REGNO DEI SOGNI", "WANDLER ZWISCHEN DEN WELTEN" et "LOS REINOS ONÍRICOS", which very roughly correspond to the original's subtitle "Realms of Reverie." It's not exactly a stone-cold certainty but the signs are promising, and we'll keep you posted as more information comes in.
