Square Enix doesn’t sound confident about bringing Dragon Quest VII 3DS to the West :o( ⊟

So what’s the deal with Square Enix not localizing any of its Dragon Quest games for the 3DS released in Japan? You’d think the publisher would localize the DQVII remake for the 3DS at least, right? Siliconera caught up with Dragon Quest mobile producer Noriyoshi Fujimoto to see if there’s any chance we’ll get that one, but he offered the following response:

“In terms of DQVII, it has a lot of text to go through and translate, and we’ve received so many requests and so much positive feedback about the game, but unfortunately, we have to consider the cost and the manpower needed to handle the sheer load of text. In terms of scenario and script, the game is probably one of the largest in the DQ franchise. If a lot of people can buy it and support it… well, we can’t promise anything.

… We’ve gotten a lot of requests, we really want to do it, but right now, we need to hammer out what kind of resources we’d need to do it. We say this a lot, but, we can’t seem to get to the point where it’s justifiable.”

In absolutely unrelated news, Square Enix will release the original Dragon Quest, as well as subsequent games (II and III have been mentioned), with a new localization to smartphones starting this September. I can’t be too bitter since those older titles have a lot less text to translate, but you’d be amazed how bitter I still manage to be regardless. Image is via F Yeah Dragon Quest!

Silence is Journalism, Too: An open letter to Jeff Gerstmann and the men in my industry


This has been a hard week.

By now, nobody needs to be reminded of what’s going on. An ongoing campaign of harassment by the men of 4chan, reddit, and other sites has driven two women out of their homes and has targeted dozens more. The unacceptability of this has been stated by hundreds if not thousands of people, and doesn’t need to be reiterated. It’s more than unacceptable - it’s monstrous. It’s ridiculous. It’s worthy of nothing more than contempt.

So where is the contempt?

An Open Letter to Aaron Diaz


Dear Aaron Diaz,

Over the past few days we’ve already exchanged some words about this. I reblogged Mary’s comic lampooning your comic (and others like it), expressing my approval of its message. I also subtweeted your work fairly obviously. We are friendly acquaintances and my behavior was…

Sometimes I think it’s okay to just admit that you like looking at certain kinds of people naked and that’s okay.

Mary continues to kill it.

Fantasy Life looks so fun ⊟

We haven’t talked about Fantasy Life much on the site since Nintendo announced it for the West, but if you’ve tuned in to the TinyCast, you’ve heard how hyped we are for this action RPG/life sim from Level-5 and 1-Up Studio.

I was sold on this 3DS game as soon as I saw Tailor pop up as one of the playable classes — you can see all the jobs in this new overview trailer for Europe, where the game releases on September 26. If you’re excited about this too and want to connect with me online so I can make you some bomb-ass outfits, preorder it here!
