Nintendo Direct: Dragon Quest VII and Dragon Quest VII Confirmed For Western Releases
If you localize it, they will play.
Square Enix has finally delivered what so many of its fans have been asking for via Nintendo, so we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief. During today's Nintendo Direct presentation, it was announced that the 3DS editions of Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past and Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King will be releasing in 2016 in the west via Nintendo.
Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past will be launching early summer 2016, while Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King will make its debut sometime during the year.
Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King is a special remake that will feature extra content, playable characters, and tons more. We've had quite a few talks about it here on Modojo, so it's great to see it's actually going to happen for English-speakers. Unfortunately, that's about all of the information we got during today's event, so we'll have to stay on the lookout for more in the future.
