Please look forward to it.

Dragon Quest XII for smartphones (basically) confirmed.


Admittedly, Dragon Quest for smartphones is probably a pretty decent fit.

I have to admit DQVIII DOES look pretty nice, though I'd only want to actually control I-VI on a touch screen, and maybe VII depending on port quality.

I don't have a problem with this. They milk their franchises over and over. They obviously make money because people want to play them. It isn't like they are bad games. They restrict that to their new games.

Was bound to happen ya'll

Might not be the worst series to port to smartphones, turnbased combat etc, i had some fun with FF3 and FF4 on my Iphone 5, i had no fun with FIFA, GTA3 etc since they require more precise controls.

Hopefully they port these ports to 3DS and Vita, cant be that hard, right?

To be honest stuff like DQ8 on a phone doesn't sound too bad at all. The only prob is where is the handheld+hd version :/

DQ is actually a good fit for mobile but Square Enix has some of the worst UI designers on the planet so the games will look appropriately ugly.

Localization is another matter so a nice fuck you SE for that.

Ah, can't blame 'em. They just want a nice chunk of change, and these games will probably deliver that.

Yeah, they do kind of need to support horizontal too at least.

And I don't think DQ1&2 are new to smartphones, but they'd probably port those to every console if they thought they could sell it.

not such a terrible idea tbh. turn-based menu combat would translate well to phones. i never played 8 so i would buy that if the price was decent.

4 or 5. Most people would say 5 though, especially since the western DS release was complete, unlike 4 which had party chat cut out.
