Officially I don't think DQ4 was but we knew it was coming, but I'm pretty sure V & VI confirmed for US is totally new and awesome.

The only DQ games I've beaten are the original and VIII; I've played II and VII.

What should I expect for IV?

Either it's me or the site is getting hammered, but it's working at least.

Though not a big fan of the only DQ game I've played, I've been encouraged to play at least one of these three, so I suppose I'll start with IV. :D I'm not a Toriyama fan, but I love his DQ designs, and plus I'll be supporting this fledgling-in-US series.

I wonder if "Zenithia" is their name for the trio? Seeing those logos in English is just so weird.

And I've never played these before, I'm really excited. The set-up for DQ4 sounds awesome.

I wonder if there's much difference between the SNES versions and these. IV I'll definitely DEFINITELY replay again since it been... oh my god, 15 years or so since I played it.

I was kind of hoping for a summer release for Dragon Quest IV, but I wasn't realistically expecting it.

Besides, I'm too busy being happy that the fifth and sixth games were confirmed for release. :D

YES. V is so damn good.

This and FFIV DS remake this year make me rather happy.

Now, on the non-remake front, if only there was some word on DQIX.

Well, now I can "officially" say that DQ IV, V and VI will be coming stateside soon. Never doubted Dragona, Red Scarlett or Aeana about the games coming stateside, but as Red Scarlett said, I was afraid they'd get "Heartbeat'd" Now most likely DQ IX will take awhile before getting released and hopefully with more DS sales, SE will see the potential to remake DQ I - III in DS graphics, just so I can have the entire collection on a handheld.

Background:
I'm not typically big into RPGs (save Fire Emblem), though I have played quite a few (e.g. Golden Sun, Earthbound, DW1, Mario&Luigi, Paper Marios). I did really like Dragon Warrior (NES), but the fact that your party followed you around like a snake (I've never really liked that) in DW2 made me decide to pass on it. (When you get very few games per year, you end up passing up games for ticky reasons.) I'm considering DQIV (even bought DWIII (GBC) recently to try to see how it went), but I'm still not 100% sure.

Questions:
Can someone explain how the series goes? I've heard about the stories being in three episode arcs (e.g. 1-3 have ties, 4-6 have ties), but are they any other ties between the games? Can someone explain how DQIV would be viewed by someone who only really played DW1 in the series? Do your party members follow you around like a snake in DQIV DS?

Just play DQIV through VI as they get released, and then come back and tell us. :P

VII and VIII are related too. Just not as closely as IV - VI which is less tightly knit compared to I - III.

The differences between the original versions and the remake versions of Dragon Quest games are always huge.
