Dragon Warrior III

You have to applaud Enix’s determination to break into the U.S. market with the Dragon Quest series, even after the abysmal failure of Nintendo’s promotion of the first game. The biggest problem the series faced in the U.S. was that most of its user base had no clue about why the series would be interesting to them.

Re: Dragon Warrior III

This is easily my favorite DW game. I loved 1-4, didn't play 5-7, 8 and 9 were both great but DW3 is the game I still think about and it's the only one I'd probably play through again.

Btw I saw this potentially scary piece of info while looking at DQ10-
Quote:
Nintendo president and CEO Satoru Iwata compared the Dragon Quest series to the Brain Age series, which was also seen as unmarketable in the West, and declared that he would like to work closely with Square Enix to raise the series' international appeal
Anyone else have this reaction or was it just me?

Re: Dragon Warrior III

First of all, brain age was a success in N.A. so I don't see what he means. Secondly, I hope he is talking about promotion, and not changing the game for stupid N.A.
If we get something vastly different than what they get in Japan, then I will be keeping my money, and dowloading the Japanese release along with a patch.

The whole DQ situation is so frustrating, what is it about it the series that keeps it down in N.A.? Could it be the fact that, they stopped bringing them over for the snes period? Thus loosing too much of their meager fanbase? Every last one of them is an excellent game, I just don't get it.

I just chcked vgchartz and DQ9 is up to a pathetic 216k sales in N.A... just sad.

I guess it's hard to blame them for taking drastic measures.

Most certainly. They shot themselves in the foot. The SNES is hugely responsible for making the RPG market what it is today.

Re: Dragon Warrior III

So I've been playing this again to master it and let me just say, awesome. It's been a little frustrating getting used to the really old RPG mechanics again but it's all good.

I bumped this because I was surprised to see that the world map is the earth. I played this a lot years ago and I don't remember ever figuring that out(no world map kinda helped). So was I just stupid, did everyone know this?

Re: Dragon Warrior III

Dragon Warrior 1-4. Played inside and out. There was alot of hours in those games, especially if you wanted the all the casino items.

Re: Dragon Warrior III

But did you know the world map of 3 is earth? Did you notice the controversial symbol behind the altar?
