....or Dragon Quest Warriors (or Dragon Warriors Quest).

So during this year's TGS, Sony's pre-TGS spectacular back at the start of September. Squeenix announced a collaboration with Koei Temco and Team Omega Force, in a completely original move and not just done by another long standing franchise or software developer, to celebrate their core franchise, Dragon Quest's, upcoming 11th game announcement/30th anniversary/sweet Dragon Quest style Special Edition PS4/whatever. Now that the game's development is a bit further along, I figured that now might as well be as good of a time as any to post this (and hey, you never know, a localization announcement might not be totally off the table; especially since Musou games have a solid track record of getting out into the west, even in spite of some of their game's source material).

Here's the initial announcement (and a look at that doomed never to leave Japan Special Edition PS4).

Here's the first set of announced returning characters.

Here's the second.

And here's the sorta kinda confirmed at the moment third set.


That said, here's hoping that A) it comes over to the west, and B) that it'll also draw some characters from some of the more obscure entries in the series like the Legend of Hero Abel anime (or whichever one that somehow was shown on Saturday mornings in the west for an incredibly brief amount of time).

I'd buy the fuck out of that PS4.

Hmmm looking through the character list, I can't help but just sort of shrug and say w/e. Not really sure who, if anyone, from Dragon Quest that they could put in to get me excited. >.>

I hope we get this, with DQ not quite being dead in the West.

Some voice actor stuff and DQ3 Hero alts for the two leads. Chances are that they and the other original characters will end up as the DQ MC brigade at some point since it was pretty odd for the game to announce previous characters and not start with/include the MCs (they're practically a prerequisite whenever DQ is involved).

Also have an Alena trailer. Unfortunately, I somehow suspect that because this is a Musou game, the ridiculousness of her stats and abilities from DQIV will not translate over very well.

I really want to like this game, but I can't find myself getting excited by the cast. >.> Sadly I can't think of any better cast choices. I guess I am just going to have to take Nera, Bianca, and Terry and hope that they can carry the game for me or something.

If they include a lot of characters from 3-5 and 8, I'll be happy...

I'd personally like a few from VII. Maribel, Keifer, and/or Aira would all be fun.  Particularly Maribel would have absolutely hilarious battle quotes.
