    Well then, here’s hoping the two companies track records with porting to PC doesn’t screw this one up!

    Any censorship we need to worry about?

    NISA and CapCom were not mentioned, and this is being released by Koei/Tecmo, so Im dure it will have none.

    Knowing K/T’s track record, this port is going to be completely gimped somehow…like when they removed Multiplayer from DW8XLE

    Neither SE or KT have had that good a record with porting. Also shame you can’t set the text language to moon.

    Another reason to not get a PS4 yet.

    This game was 60fps on the PS4 so the PC version should be at least 60fps as well.

    Nothing to censor beyond giving Alenas DQH outfit her tights back if they don’t care for spats or maybe giving a little nip tuck to one of Jessicas attacks. I’d say Maya has a chance if I didn’t think they’d think it was racist but you shouldn’t have anything to worry about like Bating said, it’s a musou so I doubt Koei will want to spend any more money than they have to while SquareEnix seems to only have script changes for anything but.

    Less than two months between Western console and PC release is much quicker than expected. Also figured the Slime weapon set would remain exclusive to console, but guess not…

    45 bucks is a surprisingly decent launch price too; guess Square might finally be getting that they can ask a bit more for games on Steam if they don’t wait too long with releasing them.

    Let’s hope they don’t port the PS3 version, and let’s hope they don’t curiously make the game look worse than the console versions like with Pirate Warriors!

    That subtitle is a mouthful.

    The requirements are a bit odd, they list an i7 870 as minimum, which is still a pretty solid CPU for its age. Its a far cry from the usual core 2 duo/quad, so it doesn’t seem to be just another last gen port.

    I see nothing on the store page about needing to preorder to get the DLC items, they’re part of the Slime Edition which is the only version sold on PC.

    That’s cool. Wonder what mods’ll bring?

    Given how musou games usually turn out on PC I’m not too bummed that I bought this on PS4. I still hope it’s a good port.

    It’d be nice if this led to other Dragon Quest games on PC, though. Maybe some of the ones they ported to iOS/Android? It’d be nice to get an official Western release of the SNES remakes of I-III on something other than phones.

    Those are if they felt like it, both neither have the patience and they don’t have the interest in spending money on changes that aren’t in the PS4 copies. Only thing you have to fear is Alenas horrible dub because it’s very not okay.

    “Minimum Requirements: i7”

    I hope an overclocked i5 will do.

    It’s so sad that’s become the de facto expression when it comes to PC ports. So very very sad.

    Goddammit, why did I buy a PS4 again? Next will be Bloodborne

    Definitely not gonna be a good port.

    I’m hoping for a PC port of Dragon Quest Builders.
