Dragon Quest X localization looking unlikely, but could be reconsidered with enough fan requests
Nintendo streamed the Dragon Quest VII developer discussion at PAX from a couple of weeks ago, but the online audience was only treated to some of what was shown. We know that a bit of Dragon Quest VIII footage debuted at the event, and fans were able to ask Square Enix’s Noriyoshi Fujimoto some questions.
One person wanted to find out if we’ll ever be getting Dragon Quest X in the west. According to a fan attending the event, Fujimoto responded by saying that translating an MMO is a daunting task, and it would be difficult to bring over the game from a business standpoint. However, he did say that if there’s enough fan outcry similar to that of what happened with Dragon Quest VII, Square Enix could look into it.
Square Enix has already made Dragon Quest X for Wii U, 3DS, and Wii. An NX version is also planned.
