I must confess I am just not the ultimate Dragon Quest fan, so my experience with the series is nil and I have never had the strong interest to learn about it.

Obviously it's fan base is quite dedicated, however.

So I read that there will be no voice acting in game...is this true? If so...why? I mean the last console dragon quest was voiced over, and both dragon quest heroes on ps4 and ps3 were voiced, why would the next major installment forego voice acting? Seems weird...

Dragon Quest has never had voice acting in Japan.


Have the confirmed no voice acting in the West? If so, I guess it's just to save money.

No, they haven't, actually. But considering how wordy it is, even if they only do English Voice Acting (very possible), I think it might be a bit much to expect the same deal we got with DQ8, even though it'd definitely be appreciated...

It's also worth noting that they haven't mentioned any confirmed platforms or shown off the Switch version yet, so there might be a lot of surprises in-store for us...

I'm fine without voicework since I almost always skip through it if possible, and would rather the music be the voice of RPGs.

Was that the same for DQH I&II? Were there at least vocal sound effects? I can't imagine playing an action game like that with completely silent characters.

No specific date, but western release confirmed.

This was always going to happen so the delay on confirming it was extra annoying.  They didn't even talk about this game at E3.

I am pleased to see that this has been confirmed for Western release.  They game looks absolutely gorgeous on the Playstation 4 and I am looking forward to seeing it in motion.  Also like the new subtitle.  It isn't the same as the Japanese version, but at least the new subtitle is still worded elegantly.

On the issue of voice acting brought up earlier in the thread, I would definitely welcome it if the performance is well done.  I happen to think well acted dialogue can enhance the gaming experience significantly.

Under no circumstances should Quentin Tarantino be allowed to befoul Star Trek.

Agreed, and if it's even remotely as good as DQVIII, I'd be quite pleased.
