General: Dragon Quest X in the West But Different?

According to a report at Kotaku, Dragon Quest X may indeed be brought to the West but perhaps not in the same form in which it lives in Japan. Producers Yosuke Saito and Yu Miyake said that games can vary from country to country to fit the needs of a diverse world audience.

Saitou: This is just my take on it, but it appears that different countries play games at different speeds, and the community management is also diverse. It's more than just if players would be able to enjoy universal seasonal events, so I believe we should manage countries and areas separately. That's why I think we should have separate servers for each country.

    Definitely agree. Western audiences generally don't respond as well to some of the eastern standards in MMOs.

    Well, hopefully they don't change the combat. It seems like the interaction with the world is pretty great too. You can look in cabinets, vases, and other things, and sit in chairs too, read books from shelves. It follows previous Dragon Quest games with that accept it's online which is pretty neat because it adds that social aspect.

    I'm reviving this. It is still entirely possible. They are JUST localizing it in China and they are considering localizing it in the West. I am working directly with Square Enix Support in my campaign to bring DQX here. They are compiling any ticket created voicing interest on their support site and giving them directly to the devs. This is the best time for everyone to send in letters to their El Segundo office AND email support. Here is a link to the support site This is really happening!
