Dragon Quest Heroes English Version Sort of (But Not Really) Talked About; Multiplayer Shrugged Off
First and most interesting to international gamers, the company discussed overseas releases. At the show, a Chinese release plan was revealed. After saying the reaction was pleasing, Square Enix’s Ryutaro Ichimura said that he wants to carry that enthusiasm into more places. The panel was asked specifically about the English language and the option to select different voices, but didn’t really have an answer other than usual PR “Yeah we’ll consider it” stuff.
The panel reiterated that it currently has no plans for network multiplayer, but the game will take advantage of online technology in some unspecified way. Koei Tecmo producer Kenichi Ogasawara teased that he thinks players will like it.
If they’re going to reveal that feature, they’d best do it quickly, though. The game comes out for PS3 and PS4 on February 26 in Japan.
