Dragon Quest V coming out (again) in spring 2008


Square Enix has announced a release window for the next in their series of rapid-fire Dragon Quest remakes. Dragon Quest V: Bride of Heaven is scheduled for a spring 2008 release in Japan.

This is one that we should be really hoping for, because it has actually never been released outside Japan. Unlike Dragon Quest IV, which just hasn't been released outside Japan in a long time. But with the Enix side in charge of Square Enix, and with Dragon Quest IV selling like it is in Japan, expect to see the money spent for localization of all three remakes.

Dragon Quest V features the ability to catch and tame monsters. Much like Torneko's quest in Dragon Quest IV spun off into its own game (and then the Mystery Dungeon series in general), this mechanic was the genesis of the Dragon Quest Monsters games.

Japan loves their Dragon Quest.

No seriously. V is one of the finest of the series. There is much hope for these to be released here, and that makes me very happy. Joy joy.

I really want all of the DQ remakes to be released outside of Japan. I've played DQ 1-3 on the GBC and love the idea of getting the next 3 games in this series. I bought Dragon Quest Monsters Joker just to send the message that I love these games.

I want to see this State side as well. But, to let you all know if DQIV is a direct port of the PSX version then there is a secret chapter with a alternative ending and a very very cool secret during the chapter. But, I'm not telling...... ;) So we should really want this in the West as well.

Japan loves their Dragon Quest, and so do I.
Localize for great justice. Be part of the solution not the problem, SE.
