    The first JRPG I ever played was the original Dragon Warrior on NES. There is no game series more important to me!

    This has been the year of Dragon Quest for me. Games I've beaten so far:

    Dragon Quest II (Android)
    Dragon Quest III (Android)
    Theatrhythm: Dragon Quest
    Dragon Quest Monsters 3D
    Dragon Quest Monsters 2 3D

    Currently still in the process of playing Dragon Quest VIII 3D and Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3, which I hope to finish before Dragon Quest VII 3D releases in English next month. I've already had a Japanese copy for years, but I could not get into it. It's easily the least import-friendly game in the series, and while its slow-ass world resurrection setup didn't gel with me, I'm willing to give it another chance.

    Next up is Dragon Quest Heroes which I'll be getting along with my PS4 purchase. It'll probably end up being a Slim. I just can't wait any longer, and it looks like I'll just have to double-dip when Neo comes around.

    Dragon Quest Builders is coming out as well, though I don't know if a Dragon Quest skin is gonna convince me to play Minecraft.

    Of course, Dragon Quest VIII 3D is getting released in English as well (possibly next year), but I'm already content with the Japanese voice acting and don't know that I'll be picking it up day 1.

    And let's not forget Dragon Quest XI is scheduled to be released in Japan before May 27th of next year (to be within the series' 30th anniversary). I'll have 2 versions of that to play through. It'll be either the 3DS and NX versions or the PS4 and NX versions, depending on what the NX version is a port of (I'm hoping PS4).

    It's a good time to be a Dragon Quest fan.

      Editing … I sure hope so, but I have this feeling it'll be Dragon Quest's FF12. I mean, they didn't withhold showing off the battle system for no reason. Especially when 3DS battle footage has been out there for ages. The battles will almost certainly be seamless, which isn't an issue in itself. The question is how close will it be to DQ? There's also the risk of the world being too big, and as a result, empty and lifeless. FF12 was alright, but its world design doesn't hold a candle to DQ8. That game had such a crazy amount of detail and care put in. No other JRPG world has come close since then. We'll just have to wait and see, but I'll definitely play it either way, and I'm more excited about the PS4 (and hopefully NX) release than the 3DS release.

      Editing … If I recall correctly, it was. And they wouldn't even have to advertise it, the DQ fanbase knows what they want, and they keep informed. Releasing it in the west would be dirt cheap.

    I'll have a reason to dust off the 3DS in 2016!

    I'm confused and can't really figure out which game in the Dragon Quest franchise got released for which platform.

    So far I only own Dragon Quest 6 and 9 (and a game called Dragon Quest Monsters 2 ??!), all for the DS.
    1 and 2 are available for the Game Boy Color, I think.
    8 is apparently a PS2 game ?
    10 doesn't count (justl like Final Fantasy 11 and 14 don't "count" as mainline FF games) because it's a MMO
    and 11 releases next year or whatever simultaneously on PS4 and 3DS

    Were any of the other games in the series released in the PAL region?
    And how many spin-offs are there?

      Editing … The first four are NES games. V is SNES (jp), was remade for the PS2 (jp) before coming out on DS (everywhere). VI came out on the SNES (jp) and then on DS. VII is on PSX (na and jp) and got a remake on 3DS (jp). VIII is PS2 (everywhere) and 3DS (jp). IX is DS (everywhere)

      Editing … The first four were released in america as Dragon Warrior. They're all on SNES except for IV which is on PSX (all jp). All on GBC except for IV(jp, na). IV was released on DS everywhere so you can add it on your list

      Editing … Except for DSiWare and 3DS, Nintendo handhelds are region free, so you could import Dragon Warrior I & II and III for GBC. It's been confirmed the Dragon Quest VII remake on 3DS will eventually be released in the west. Dragon Warrior Monsters on GBC and both Dragon Quest Monsters 1 and 2: Joker on DS got a European release but Dragon Warrior Monsters 2 on GBC didn't, though again, you could import it.
