Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past (3DS) > Opinions (51)

Solid sales, but could be better. I am thinking despite being an excellent remake with much improved graphics, the ghosts of the original game still haunt this one. Although I don't think DQ8 will do that much better since it is coming out so soon and right before Switch is rumored to be releasing. But then again DQ8 is one of the more popular games among long time DQ fans so they may surprise me.

Considering the situation, i'd say these are certainly good enough sales. In the first 6 weeks it's sold about ~120k in the west, that's probably bagged them a good profit discounting translating, which I believe Nintendo covered, so Squeenix didn't have to worry about that. There's still a holiday to go too.

Well, clearly we don't deserve these games getting released here. I don't want to read any complaints in the future, about Nintendo or square Enix not supporting DQ in the west, it sold so bad... Such a fantastic game, bought it day one, going to support 8 day one as well. It should have sold up to now at least double the sales it has now.

Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail.

It's certainly on-track to. USA FW was about 1.7x more, while EU has 4x more, and it should easily outpace the sales of DQ6. Hopefully that will convince Squeenix that, while not as big as Japan, there is a big enough market to translate and sell to the west, making a good amount of money in the process/

I'm so glad it's coming. I really hope it sells much more than DQ6 on DS, and DQ8 as well, so that they consider bringing DQ11 here. I'm gonna buy both for sure, big DQ fan, have all the DS ones!

@atma998: Square Enix won't likely localize this, they have gotten too used to Nintendo doing the heavy lifting for them when it comes to Dragon Quest. Nintendo's schedule is already full up for 2013 so I am hopeful for a late 2014 release some time after Bravely Default.

I really enjoy this remakes, 4, 5 and 6 were amazing. Here's hoping for this one to come to America! And I hope they port 8 too! I've always wanted to try that one! And a 1-2-3 compilation wouldn't be a bad idea either!

I hope that Horii and his team now know that JRPG gamers like this style of JRPG, not an online MMO like Dragon Quest X. This game already outsold Dragon Quest X and more people in Japan own a Wii over a 3DS. This is sad. I want a real, new, Dragon Quest for Wii U. Dragon Quest XI will probably be for 3DS and then Dragon Quest XII will be for Wii U hopefully.

@sisca

Because Vita is selling like crap, and since these two consoles are completely different, most developers chose to ignore it. That's why.

Sales are awesome.

Also, Dragon Warrior was the original name of this game, so it's entry in the database is as such I gather. It wasn't until later that they decided to use 'Quest' like the Japanese name.

I don't think they'd pay for exclusiveness. That'd be money out of Nintendo's pocket and Square Enix's. I think they chose DS for 4-6 and 9 because DS was/is the best selling game machine of all time and they'd make more profit on a Nintendo DS rather than a PSP. It costs to port games believe it or not. Especially if it's on a different company's console.

@Heavenly_King: paid them? Really? After the remakes for IV-VI were on DS and not PSP? I suppose they paid for those, too...*rolls eyes*

Wow, this game really deserves these sales. Keep in mind that this is a remake. I've seen gameplay videos and I want it so bad now. The 3DS and Vita aren't even of comparison as of now. There's not one killer app on vita and I see no reason in buying one. Will vita have Pokemon... nope, 3DS for me.
