Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation – Staff Review
27 March 2011
Excerpt: Dragon Quest is one of the biggest franchises in Japan, but it took much longer to catch on in North America. Americans did get access to the first four games, but after that, the series went into relative obscurity. We completely missed Dragon Quest and VI .
Conclusion: playing games have just as much cause to celebrate Nintendo’s continued localizations of the series’ handheld remakes, adapting titles once exclusive and un-translated during their original SNES stints.
