Dragon Quest V date confirmed for Japan -- July 17th

If you've been anxious to hear an official announcement on Dragon Quest V: Tenkuu no Hanayome's (Bride of Heaven) release date, you'll be happy to hear that you can finally mark your calendars ... for the day someone else in Japan can buy the game. Square Enix has posted three updated screenshots and confirmed the rumor we reported just two days ago about a possible July 17th release for the 3D remake.

While this is all great news, we're anxious to hear when Square Enix plans to finally bring DQV (and DQIV DS!) to the states, as the original Super Famicom game never left Japan. While we're at it, when are we getting the next non-remake for the series, Dragon Quest IX?

Rumor: Dragon Quest V dated for Japan

Word is that we're about to find out that Dragon Quest V will be released in Japan this summer, thus ensuring that nation has just as great a summer as we'll have here in the U.S. The remake was originally slated for this spring, but, clearly, it's been delayed. Of course, we've still not heard whether or not Dragon Quest IV will make it across the ocean, but that doesn't mean they won't. After all, in recent memory, Professor Layton was all over Japan long before we heard about the English localization, and we're pretty sure that Square Enix enjoys money, so it seems likely that the Dragon Quest remakes will make it over here eventually.

For now, however, those of you with an eye toward importing DQV, look toward July, and keep your fingers crossed for us poor saps who can't read it in Japanese.

DS Daily: Such a Square (Enix)

There's a lot of potential Square Enix on the horizon. Between The World Ends with You, Final Fantasy remakes, Dragon Quest remakes, new Dragon Quests, Border of Madness, Final Fantasy Tactis A2, and Crystal Chronicles, that's quite a lot of DS love. Oh, and let's not forget Kingdom Hearts. So, are you a Square Enix fan? If so, what game are you most hoping for or looking forward to?

Dragon Quest V scans color us impressed

Will Dragon Quest V ever be released outside of Japan? We certainly hope so. As for now, though, we'll just have to look at scans of a game that we very well may never get to play, like kids outside of a candy store. Oh Square Enix, how you can be so cruel to us sometimes.

Quest on past the break to see some scans for the next remake in the series.
