The past few years have been riddled with frustration and uncertainty for Dragon Quest fans, but it looks like there’s still a glimmer of hope for the role-playing franchise. This past weekend, Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii may have inadvertently revealed that the series’ recent 3DS remakes, Dragon Quest VII and Dragon Quest VIII, may finally be getting a worldwide release in the near future.

The alleged reveal happened during an interview with Horii at the Japan Expo in Paris, during which the designer said that the aforementioned titles would be released “in French” (signifying, at the very least, a European release for the two games). Square Enix has not officially commented on these remarks, though it appears Horii’s translator got visibly upset when Horii mentioned the games would be localized.

Unfortunately, it’s still too early to say with any certainty if Dragon Quest VII and VIII will actually be released outside of Japan, though we’ll continue holding out hope for them. Are you also keeping your fingers crossed that Dragon Quest VII and VIII will make it stateside? Let us know in the comments!

    I suppose it would be cool to have them, but on the other hand I would still like to see the first four dragon warrior/quest games from the NES on the virtual console, as to this day I never got to play dragon warrior 4. I have the original 3 all complete, but back in the day when I was looking for a copy of 4 it cost too much, and still does.
