While reading my extensive coverage of Dragon Quest X you probably noticed that I often wondered if the game will ever come west, especially after the announcement of the PC version to be released in Japan this September. In an interview on the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu producer Yu Miyake responded exactly that question, and the answer is definitely encouraging.
Of course. Howevever it’ll be run in Dragon Quest’s own way in the overseas market. Every country has a different style of gameplay and tastes, so I doubt it’ll be on worldwide servers like Final Fantasy XI
There you have it, straight from the horse’s mouth. It’s worth mentioning that the question asked was specific on the possibility of Square Enix planning to release the PC version on overseas markets, while it didn’t mention any other platforms (Wii and Wii U), so we still don’t know whether the localized release will be only on PC or will hit consoles as well.
While we still don’t have any data on when and how the game will come to the west, now we know that it will, which is much better than nothing, isn’t it?
