It looks like Square-Enix has said they have no plans to bring the PS2 remake of Dragon Quest V to North America.
This, I think, sucks royally. I can’t see why they’re not. I thought with this merger we would see MORE of the series Stateside. It can’t be graphics or outdated design, Final Fantasy Origins was just released on the PS1 last year and did fairly well. Despite the fact that Enix bought out Square in this merger, it doesn’t look like they’re being treated very fairly…
There’s also no word of Wild ARMS Alter Code F being released Stateside yet, this makes me upset, I was looking forward to those two remakes.
I suppose that’s the sad truth. I’m still ticked over it all though. But I didn’t know Wild ARMS 3 <i>bombed</i>, it was a great game. Or were most gamers like ‘omg teh grafix sux, liek celda lolz’, it’s people like THAT which cause stuff like this to happen.
Just like when Sony of America put the stop to the PS2 Goemon game because they thought it was ‘graphically inferior’, I was SO pissed when I heard that…
They should release these games unter the title “ESPN Football 2006” and “ESPN Basketball 2006”, that way we would be happy, since we would have two great japanese RPGs, and everyone else would be happy, since if you slap “ESPN” and a date on a game every guy that goes to my college will buy a copy and pretend to enjoy it.
Man this sucks,Dragon Warrior is a great game is a shame it won’t come this way,but if fore some reason the games Wild Arms Alter Code and Another Code F,and Dragon Warrior 8 don’t come,somebody is going to die.
