Nintendo has announced that Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies will be released in North America on 11 July 2010 and in Europe on 23 July 2010 exclusively on Nintendo DS.
The release will be one year after the release in Japan, where it sold over 4.2 million copies.
The remake of Final Fantasy III and Final Fantasy IV for the Nintendo DS were positivity received by fans, but a lot of fans want Final Fantasy V and Final Fantasy VI to be released on the Nintendo DS too. However Shinji Hashimoto tweeted that they are still considering remaking them.
"As for FF5 and 6, there are technical problems; presently these are also undecided."
This doesn't mean that the games aren't coming. It might be that Square is waiting for a new version of the Nintendo DS with increased power to be released.
17 years after the first release in Japan, Final fantasy III has finally reached Europe, and not just as a simple remake... no, this time, Final Fantasy III has been completely revamped to get the most out of the Nintendo DS with 3D graphics and even WFC features.
