    The metacritic is a shitshow. High ratings from nintendo fansites, because of course, and people butthurt about pokemon. I mean actual reviewers i know i can trust are like a repeating checklist of 'boring combat', 'runs like a bag of dicks', 'more basic than youkai wait' 'but at least the musics great' across the board independent of each other.

    Those are all RPGs, and hell FE doesn't have any adventure mechanics at all but at least DQ11 and XC2 do lol.

    Dragon Quest is dead in the west ya'll lmao. I'm glad I know enough JP to understand DQ(since it's written for kids there) cause now after the Switch port bomba with all the effort put into it I doubt we are seeing the next entry in the series come west in any reasonable time frame.

    Catherine Full Body and Code Vein charted, but Dragon Quest did not, it's dead jim. Meanwhile #overpriced Link's Awakening was #4 for the month only behind Borderlands and the 2 sports game launches.

    I said it in the DQXI thread that the series was dead and yet a few posters wanted to argue with me about it. The game bombed hard, My store for example only sold two copies that I know of and I'm one of the people who bought it.

    Square Enix needs to scale the games budget back and accept it for what it is, A niche JRPG.

    That or just give it to Atlas so they know what to do with it. Funny enough the switch version is the best version cause of all the stuff they put in it.

    People who bought the PS4 version should be pissed.

    Budget is fine because it still sells millions in Japan, just doubtful they will be devoting much budget to a western release again. If one happens expect it even later without an english dub and with a bare minimum localization effort.

    The fact the Switch is where JRPGs go to sell and it even bombed on there in the west is just sad. There is literally no interest in this series in the west and I mostly blame Enix for that long before the merger. I mean fucking Catherine charted and it doesn't get anymore niche then that, plus it's an upgraded version of a far older game then DQXI and it was also only on a single platform. Who was the genius that decided to launch this game head to head with Zelda? Probably the same one that launched it head to head with Spider-Man lol...

    By lower budget I mean not do the VA and all.

    Right like how the fuck did they not learn with the PS4 release. They released it on top of Astra Chain,Zelda and even Daemon X Machina.

    I have never seen a company send a game out to die twice in a row even more so within a year of the first release, That's some next level shit.

    Dragon Quest is anything but niche in the only market that matters to it: Japan.

    You also talked about Square Enix and how they need to scale back DQ.

    They won't. They don't really care how bad it does in west. As long as it is success in Japan, they keep making them and putting big money into them.

    Their actions and statements disagree's with you.

    They jumped though MANY hoops to try to get it to sell in the West and they have openly stated if it didn't sell well the series likely won't return. They should scale back how much they spend to bring it to the West. The VA's wasn't needed at all.

    They also for whatever dumb ass reason seem to think it would stand toe to toe with big game releases. The sales on the PS4 got murdered because it released right next (in the same dam week) as Spiderman and then the same thing happen again with it releasing next to Links Awakening.

    The main problem with DQ games is that they still use the same anoying mehanics (saving at churches with to much text, a lot of usless combat skills, exploration zones with to many invisible walls, pointless combat with mobs when you can just grid metal slimes and more), however dragon quest builders 2 kinda fixed some of those issues.

    DQB series is great and it says a lot that it did better than DQXI.

    Agree with you on that. I enjoyed DQ11, but god damn, it's almost 95% the same with maybe one mechanical twist and that's it.
    Just don't reply to me. Please. If you can help it.

    Dq11 has been the only one ive liked so obviously theyre doing something right.

    Also https://mynintendonews.com/2019/10/1...ntendo-switch/

    They're not gonna risk losing 3 million sales of DQ in Japan just to try to capture the west so it will stay very old school and traditional. If DQXII does come west, I will assume it will be a Nintendo exclusive and localized by Nintendo like the 3DS remakes where. Square likely won't even bother.

    I do find it weird that people were complaining about being starved for turn based rpgs that bravley default and octopath filled because they made ff action and frankly bad, but dq has always been there. I dont think dq needs to change either.

    That last map of BL in FE on Maddening is cancerous. Siege tome mages as ambush spawns is cheap, at best, in a map where the boss was already pelting your units twice per turn from 30+ range.

    The western market has always been more into action/adventure and fps based games and less into turn based games.
    Since the 80’s, maybe even before, Japan has withheld games from the Western market as they’ve either had little interest from previous sales or were deemed too difficult for western players. Just look at FF2 & 3 as well as the real Super MARIO 2. There’s also been plenty of other NES and SNES games that have never reached our market. I wish this wouldn’t happen because most of the games turn out to be great, but then again, I’m probably one of those niche players that enjoys things like Dragon Quest and traditional turn based RPGs. I dislike the direction Final Fantasy has gone with the action RPG mecalhanics.

    People seem to want to make this excuse for DQ all the time but lets be honest. Persona, Octopath and Fire Emblem all thrashed it in western sales and all are turn based.

    The reason DQ isn't popular in the west has nothing to do with this, in fact if they went straight action and otherwise kept DQ the same it would probably actually sell less in the west because they would alienate the few fans they have. The reason DQ isn't appealing in the west is it has a corny tropey story and it's marketed in a corny and tropey way. Granted I don't find anything wrong with this, but it's not appealing to the west like the edge lord cast, school setting and other flashy things popular JRPGs have going on.
