American DS owners have been waiting patiently for Dragon Quest IX
, as the game racks up crazy
sales in Japan and weekly DLC is released from Square Enix. Well ... we're going to have to keep waiting. While Nintendo didn't announce a date for the RPG at the Nintendo Media Summit
today, the company announced that it will not only co-market Dragon Quest IX
, it will publish
it in North America. This is the first official confirmation of a localized release.
Square Enix previously said
that it would consider
in its next fiscal year (beginning in April). Update:
Nintendo has scheduled Dragon Quest IX
for a summer 2010 release.
