    It’s actually only the third expansion, I think. It’s Version 4 because the vanilla game was Version 1.

    My disappointment that we’ll never get this game comes and goes. Right now it hurts pretty bad.

    Since I don’t speak moon rune, are the three 3DS games in the middle remakes of Dragon Quest 1-3? If so, I really can’t understand why the fuck they don’t bring them West since 1) those games have already been translated for the NES and it would be very quick to translate them and 2) literally every other mainline Dragon Quest game is on DS / 3DS.

    Remakes of the first two Monsters games and Slime Mori Mori 3.

    Yeah, I knew about the Wii anniversary edition. I can’t believe that they would refuse to release that in the US when it was already translated! It just bugs me that I have all of the main Dragon Quest games except for those three….I guess I could always import it and then find an English ROM to emulate.

    its even more annoying considering that they already had Dragon Quests 1-6 on Wii VC in Japan. We didn’t even at least get the NES version of 1-3, which are already translated officially.

    This needs to ‘expand’ to western shores on the Switch.

    3DS games in the middle…

    Rocket Slime 3
    Dragon Quest Monsters Terry’s Wonderland (Fan Translated 100%)
    Dragon Quest Monsters 2 Iru and Luca’s Marvelous Mysterious Key

    Then under Heroes 2

    Dragon Quest Monsters 3 (and 3 Professional) (Fan Translation in Progress)

    It can ‘expand’ into a trash heap.

    Much like your posting.
