Yeah, hopefully they get rid of the stupider aspects to it, such as the jet ski and vending machines. I like my DQs to be a little more... traditional, I suppose. And yeah, get rid of the main character. Awful design.
Ah well, point still stands. If Enix wanted both, we'd have both. Morimori 2 did indeed underperform in Japan. 300k isn't anything to sneeze at, though. I'm sure the series will get picked up again at some point.
