    Excellent words!

    DQ XI is going to be a very beautiful looking game, at par with I think any other modern game except maybe for its intended cartoon styled 3D characters, let's see how these graphics translate in sales globally.

    Again! It isn't more crappy than the globally poor commercial performance. Think about that, and think how fair that is for such a great RPG series. Then look at FF15 and what made it popular. Do you want THAT to happen to DQ??
    Anyone who wants this is a worse troll, and an accomplice in the assassination of this series

    It's on the Switch, so not really in absolute terms. I doubt it'll matter at all seeing as the series has been 3D for a while now.

    And which one of those 3D games surpassed DQ 4 to 6 in terms of story quality?

    I don't know or care but 3D isn't the problem. If there is a problem it's ineptitude.

    Everything starting with FF7 has been dumb and impure.
    FF was never going to become this worldwide thing if it had remained with 1 to 6, which is where the purity is.
    If it does good business, then great, but I have personally about had it with "USA sales were poor for this great Japanese game".
    Dragon Quest has remained pure since its beginning, is it a coincidence that it still struggles in the west?
    That's because for DQ to prosper here, it has to become either:

    A) A dumb as hell series like FF

    B) An FPS game like Metroid Prime

    C) Like Zelda, it would have to kill itself and get rid of everything that makes a Dragon Quest game to become like Skyrim or The Witcher to appeal.
    Bonus sales for the ability to climb anything and dumb unfunny jokes all over the game that people will meme about to death.

    I choose option D): Don't come out in the west anymore. Besides, they have to do so much work translating all that text to that many languages! And it is such top notch work too... a tragedy.
    Why the hell would you wish it to not come out at all anymore? That's just stupid. I disagree with everyu one of your points.

    A) Final Fantasy is not a dumb series. It had some bad games, yes, but XV was good, XIV is phenominal.

    B) What does Metroid have to do with DQ in any way?

    C) Zelda has had a single game that was different, and tbh, quite fun. I also really liked Twilight Princess, which last I checked, was still very Zelda, and sold quite well. Well enough to warrant an HD Remake on the Wii U.

    D) That's just stupid, especially if you like the game series.

    Because Square Enix wants DQ to be as popular as FF. If thats what they want, I'd stop it at all cost.
    I want Lunar games to be made, but when I think of this type of big company thought process for making money even if it means selling your values, I'm happy Lunar didn't become that type of globally mainstream series.
    If all they wanted was give the few DQ fans their game and not attempt to appeal to more than the core, then I'd be happy, and I'd want it to keep coming out.
    Dragon Quest Builders and Heroes were great attempts though, in that they explore new genres, but still keep the Dragon Quest spirit as alive as ever. That... still didn't work. If something as great as the DS DQ games and DQ Builders doesn't work, all hope is lost outside Japan.

    This I cannot argue, it looks good to me! But I can't play it. I dont have a thing for online games at least at this moment.
    I would be willing to do it if every other FF released around it was good.

    Wind Waker, which is one of the biggest trash bags on earth is liked by many and got an HD remake too, so, getting an HD remake alone is not a meaningful example that a game is good. Final Fantasy 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 haven't gotten it LOL.
    Twilight Princess was a lot better, still not very Zelda, but better. Majora's Mask is an exception to the rule in which it's the least Zelda game it could possibly be, yet its content was really good.

    Just because you don't like a game doesn't mean its trash.

    If SE wanted DQ to be like the Final Fantasy series, they would make it like FF. They obviously don't, and have not.

    FFXIII is garbage, I admit that, so was FFIII, tbh. But XV is quite fun. Have you played it? I doubt it.

    FFXIV is a bigger game than any DQ game, and that still has a world wide release. There's no reason SE can't release a DQ game at the same time world wide. And in no way would it mean that the game itself has changed.

    FF1-6 have been remade more times than any other games in existence. Especially 1. Also note, I didn't say the game was good because it had an HD remake, I used that to denote it being successful, to debunk you saying it had to be made like Skyrim to be popular(clearly a shot at Breath of the Wild). I dunno how you get much more Zelda than a game like Twilight Princess tho, unless you are stuck that the only real Zelda is the old style 3/4 overhead view. If that's the case, go sit in the corner with your old games and let people enjoy newer games that are every bit as good and often better than the "classics."


    DQXI looks fantastic, and I can't wait to play it.
