Re: Why wasn't/hasn't DWM 3 released in English?
I am THE dragon warrior fan. Ask me anything. It is a shame that there has been no support for DW by squenix.
If you remember, after DW4 in the NES enix closed it's american company, then many many years later, Eidos got the license to distribute DWMonsters, it was in the middle of the Pokemon hype so it sold excellent. Enix saw it and decided to re-open their offices in America, they launched DW1&2 with great success, and so was DWM2(both versions) sadly, DW7 even though getting great reviews by every magazine/website it sold like crap because it is not "pretty looking" like Final Fantasy.
After that it seems Enix lost a lot of interest sadly. And with the merger they seemed to have totally forgotten about Enix games here in America. Such a shame the most important/popular company and game in Japan is not even known in the US. So even though the previous DWmonster games sold great, since it was for playstation they decided to not bring it to america. But hey theres some great news, Dragon Warrior will finally be known as Dragon QUest(like in japan) since the copyright ended. And it appears squareenix WILL bring DQ8 to america :D:D
