Square Enix interested in an offline/overseas version of Dragon Quest X, says 3DS titles “weren’t that popular” in the west
Dragon Quest X is somewhat of an odd entry in the series. Square Enix made it as an MMORPG, and it’s not available at the moment in the west. Perhaps that could change in the future.
Yosuke Saito, who previously was a producer, indicated that there’s interest in making an offline version of Dragon Quest X during the Super Dragon Quest X TV Fall Festival 10-Hour Special 2018 broadcast. He said:
Dragon Quest X is still a possibility for the west
Dragon Quest X is one of the few recent entries in the series that has not left Japan. The MMORPG first appeared on Wii in 2012, and has since landed on Wii U, 3DS, and Switch.
Many fans have given up on the possibility of a localization at this point, but Square Enix isn’t ruling out the idea entirely. Actually, Dragon Quest XI producer Yuu Miyake told Game Informer that the team wants to bring it stateside, though the five-year plan of service would need to be rearranged.

As a way of celebrating Dragon Quest X’s fifth anniversary, Square Enix has created a series of short animations based on “‘miraculous’ stories” submitted by players.
The first video, called “The Feeling of a Name”, is attached below. Gematsu also provides us with the following synopsis:
“The Feeling of a Name” opens as a young girl watches her parents enjoy the in-game fireworks celebration for Dragon Quest X‘s fourth anniversary on August 2, 2016. She quietly points out to her father that it looks like everyone has gathered to celebrate Yukina’s birthday. Yukina is the name of her mother’s character, but in a flashback we learn that she was named after their elder daughter, Yukina, who passed away. A year goes by, and we see the father at a cafe, chatting in Dragon Quest X on his laptop, where it is suggested he proposes to his online friends the idea his daughter mentioned a year prior, unbeknownst to his wife. Finally, on August 2, 2017, the family is gathered once again to watch the in-game fireworks celebration for the game’s fifth anniversary. It is then that everyone viewing the fireworks start to wish Yukina a happy 15th birthday, bringing tears to the surprised mother’s eyes. Had she been alive, Yukina would have turned 15 years old that day.
