New scans from Japanese gaming magazine Jump show that the Nintendo DS will be receiving three Dragon Quest
remakes -- IV, V and VI -- each as separate titles. The scans can be found on the NeoGAF forums
; according to a translation from IGN
, the first game (DQIV
) is expected to be released in Japan this winter.
The scans show that the games will be receiving a graphical upgrade from their original form. While these games are only going to further cement the DS's dominance in Japan
, the RPG trio is not guaranteed for release in other regions; of the three, only DQIV
has ever received an official launch elsewhere.
A word to Square Enix: you're running out of games to remake.
