If Moon, an obscure Japanese PSX RPG that came out 22 years ago can have a Western release after all this time, then surely these DQ trilogy remakes can get some too.

Also, reminder that Enix basically fought each other over which Heroes would get in, so it stands to reason that Sakurai only had say for the base character.

Hey it took a bit long, but I think that would be good to leave some positivity in some SNK, specially Terry supporter, boards as they are going through a similar thing we got through.

My Best Friend grown up playing Capcom VS SNK with her brother, and loves KoF. So Terry and Leona was two of her most wanted characters. And even not knowing DQ she supported the Heroes as I love DQ and really want them on Smash.

You're right, I'll go over there and show support.

That said, it's ironic that a fighting game icon like Terry is going through a similar situation that The Hero went through...because a lot of the same fighting game community that loves Terry and is aggravated by people's ignorant reactions to him...are the same people who wrote off The Hero back in E3 2019 as "yet another Fire Emblem character" or "someone no one asked for". Just compare and contrast Maximilion Dood's reaction to The Hero's reveal and Terry's reveal.

(Edit: I'd like to clarify that I'm not including Smashboards in the above, I saw this elsewhere)

I'm not enjoying what Terry's supporters are going through, quite the opposite. Just something sad I noticed I felt like pointing out. Everyone should really know their video game history, that way situations like these don't happen.

Came back from a small break, shame some groups are giving **** to Terry. Might not have attachment to the character, but I know of the importance of the franchise plus the SNK fanbase in general has been quite respectful in general. And in all honesty, I'm looking forward to see a character I'm not really knowledgeable about, might want to try the series now.

Glad to see people here being positive to Terry, plus remember giving a new series a try doesn't hurt.

Is there any particular reason we still don't have stock icons for the other Heroes besides Eleven :ulthero:? I was under the impression that we would get the stock icons for Arusu / Erdrick, Solo, and Eight when we were able to extract them directly from the game.

I still love this character very much!

I know he has flaws, but at least he’s not Little Mac :(
I struggle against rushdowns, but his kit never makes me feel helpless.”
Although the randomness of his down+b can be a bit taxing at times, I’ve formed a sort of habit to automatically bring up the menu at specific moments. Yes@, habits are bad, but I feel that with this character, I have to let it slide, for Down B.

Still trying to decide on a 2ndary though.
I do pretty well with :ultcloud:, :ultsonic:, and on my best days, :ultmegaman: .

Yeah man, I heard of Fatal Fury way before I've heard of and used the Internet. Sad that SNK went into niche status before now. Shameful, shameful, shameful.

Yeah I can't wait to get to all the DQ spin-offs after I play XI S.

Who knows, if we're lucky enough we could get the other Slime Morimori games (there's a GBA game that precedes Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime, which is what I refer to)

Edit:

Is there any particular reason we still don't have stock icons for the other Heroes besides Eleven :ulthero:? I was under the impression that we would get the stock icons for Arusu / Erdrick, Solo, and Eight when we were able to extract them directly from the game.
I'm still wondering about this btw

I'm not sure who specifically handles the stock icons, but you mean these, right?



I wasn't aware that they had already been ripped (I had to look them up on the Spriter's Resource), so maybe the person who handles that wasn't aware of it either.

Honestly wouldn't be surprised, seeing as custom icons either haven't been fixed or haven't all been uploaded on Reddit yet. Not to mention requests still not gotten around to...

Yeah that's what I mean. Hopefully they can be added soon, maybe the person in charge of adding them to the site just forgot.

Is it odd that I'm mainning all the DLCS so far? (Joker, Banjo, and Eleven) But I LOVE HERO SO MUCH
They're all super well-done, I've enjoyed every one so far except maybe Piranha Plant because they're kind of awkward to play as.

I bring good news! Terry's Wonderland/DQM is being brought to the Switch with enhanced features.

http://www.nintendolife.com/news/20...e_boy_color_dragon_quest_game_on_switch_eshop

That DQ11 marketing really paid off, didn't it?
As far as I'm aware there's no word of an english language version of this yet (and I kind of doubt there will be one), so DQ11's success probably has nothing to do with this. Still pretty rad though.

Edit: or any non-Japanese language, for that matter.

Dragon Quest 1, 2, and 3 are being released on the Switch in North America and Europe. They're all supposed to be coming out on September 27th, though it sounds like they're all separate releases and they might be exclusive to the eShop.

I'm sure that Dragon Quest 3 is worth looking into (unless there's something horribly wrong with the port, like the Final Fantasy 5 and 6 ports or the Chrono Trigger port on Steam), but what about 1 and 2?

I found 1 and 2 to make good phone games. You can just pull out your phone and play a little when on the bus or while listening to a podcast, and its oddly relaxing, especially because you could save anywhere and weren't sent back to the title screen if you died. I played them for the historical value (grandfather of JRPGs and all), but I wouldn't play them again because there's generally a straight nonlinear path you should go down despite the world being completely open-ended. I'm glad I did play them, though.

Tl;dr: Dragon Quest 3 was the first one with a well-defined job system, so if you played FF 1, 2, and 3, and that was the only thing that saved those games, skip DQ 1 and 2 unless you're really curious.

Also I don't know if the Switch ports allow you to save anywhere and send you back to your last save point if you die. That's something you should find out before buying.
