So today i’ve read that Bravely Default sold 1 million in the whole world. DQIX sold more than that just in the west (EU & NA). Brevely Second will be released internationally. DQ has almost zero chances of getting released here.
I dont understand Square Enix at all.
I don’t understand what SE is thinking. But sure, SE, keep bringing FF’s over here, and other shit but not Dragon Quest. Yeah. See what happens. We get pissed and growl and groan. And we’ll still be angry at you Square.
I think they work like this:
>Eidos games? International releases.
>FF games? Of course, international releases for all.
> KH (or anything made by Nomura)?? International releases.
> DQ? National treasure and we must protect it from outsiders.
> Other RPGs (like the Mana series)? Those people in the west wont like them.
(This might change thanks to BD tho)
Let’s not forget that Gundam games are like the DQ games they never get brought to the west. We feel your pain over in the Gundam fandom.
