The first eight Dragon Quest games are coming to smartphones soon.



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?

blah. Hey Square please rerelease these on a proper game system like the Vita and then actually localize them, I'll give you all my money.

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.

that image.


portrait video games, is even worse than portrait videos.
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.

I havent played dragon quests at all...
*sneaks out of the thread* (where do i start)
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.
