Square Enix originally gave up on Dragon Quest VII 3DS localization, but is rethinking things due to fan response
Further comments have emerged regarding the potential localization of Dragon Quest VII for 3DS.
In an interview with USgamer, Square Enix’s Yuu Miyake revealed that the company had given up on the idea at one point. However, based on interest from fans, Square Enix is now “trying to rethink this, to see if there’s any way to make this more feasible.”
This petition came from France, written in Japanese, asking, ‘Is there any way you would consider it?’ We hear the fans, and we’re paying attention. We had actually given up on the idea of localization altogether, but because there’s such a great response we’re trying to rethink this, to see if there’s any way to make this more feasible. We’re recalculating, and figuring out the costs necessary. Trying to work out the details.
