Square Enix has 'no concrete plans' to Localize Dragon Quest XI Square Enix giveth, and Square Enix taketh away. 08.01.15 - 9:11 PM
In a pair of disappointing tweets, Square Enix has disavowed any plans to bring the recently announced Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time to the West. Using its official Dragon Quest twitter account, the company said:
Hi everyone! I know a lot of people have been asking if Dragon Quest XI is coming to the West but sadly we donít have a concrete plan atm :(
Iíve been told the team will consider bringing DQ XI to the West as weíve done in the past for other DQ games but I donít know anything else
It sounds like there is still some hope for a Western localization, but it won't happen as a matter of course. Square Enix will likely want to gauge the demand for the game, so now is the time for Dragon Quest fans to make themselves heard. To get psyched up for a localization campaign you can watch the presentation with the first PS4 gameplay footage below.
