Dragon Quest XI Western Localization Is Possible But Square Enix Has No “Concrete Plan” Yet

Dragon Quest XI was recently announced for the PS4 and Nintendo 3DS. It is a brand new Dragon Quest game and it is also the first offline mainline game in a long time, that is being released on a home console. Since the game was only announced for Japan so far, it is unclear whether Square Enix is bringing it to the West or not.

Recently, the official Dragon Quest twitter account talked about a possible localization stating that they don’t have a concrete plan yet, but since they have localized the earlier Dragon Quest games, we can expect the same for Dragon Quest XI, atleast on the PS4.


Check out the tweets made by the official twitter account below.

Dragon Quest XI was revealed in a press event yesterday. It is the first game in the series that is getting released on a home console and handheld simultaneously. Both versions of the game will have the same story but different gameplay and design. Square Enix are also considering Nintendo’s upcoming console for Dragon Quest X and XI.

    Translation: If Japan doesn’t give us 2-3 million sales, you’re not getting the game suckers.

      It’ll be localized for NA…the majority of PS4 sales are outside of Japan so it’s just a given that it will come here. So…sorry sucker!!!! :p
      btw Nintendo blows goats, horrible graphics and kiddie games. have fun missing 95% of every game that’ll ever be released.

        Recently the Dragon Quest series, a and for its whole life span, never amassed as much sales even inside Japan compared to Final Fantasy so no it’s not a given at this point. Even with this being a multiplat release, they still have a target so if they don’t reach it they won’t bring the game over without enough return investment and that’s a fact.

        I never said I’d play NX version out the gate or even buy right away for that matter. Second how old are you that you’re still hung up and graphics and think every single game they make is only for limited demographics?

        P.S. I don’t have to worry about that since I’ll be owning multiple consoles and playing PC like a boss. Yolo bitch.

            Huh. Is that so I’ll have to see for myself. And obviously it is since Dragon Quest Heroes doesn’t count toward mainline series. You could be right, it may sell well enough but fact of the matter is it’s a different market than 10 years ago. No assurance until we see numbers in Japan.

    They better localize it for NA and EU for the players over there…Or else
