Hell yeah.

I really, really hope Nintendo and Square Enix announce adding online multiplayer for this. Otherwise, I'll just be bummed at missing out on a lot of the content in this game.

I'm actually fairly excited about this. I've never played a Dragon Quest game before, but I like the light-hearted look of things. As far as RPGs go, I'm still looking forward to the new Golden Sun even more though. We need more information about that game!

DQ9 seems like a bit of a departure for this series. It seems way less focused on a story and characters and more on doing missions and quests. I'm sure it's gonna be great, but I'm also a bit apprehensive.

If you've never played a DQ game before I'd definitely recommend checking them out. I wasn't a bit fan of DQ8 on the PS2 but most people seem to love it. It sure was a beautiful game.

On the DS, I loved, loved, loooved DQ5. It completely turned me into a fan of the series. I'm sure I gushed about it here already. I highly recommend checking it out.

I'm buying this for sure. I'd also LOVE to buy DQ5, as I hear great things about it, but the game is pretty hard to come by now and it's expensive on sites like Ebay. Oh well.

Edit - I'm hoping we learn SOMETHING about DQ10 for Wii this year.

I also hope they throw in online functionality, at least for swapping maps, or whatever. That sleep mode thing is not going to fly here.

I haven't played Dragon Quest since the first, but I'm down. Monster Hunter rocked my world. I'll give Japan the benefit of the doubt for a while.

I loved Dragon Quest VIII and V (and the under-appreciated Rocket Slime) so IX is on my radar, though I'm a tad bit concerned with the changes. It does kind of seem like it is more online-focused now (then again that is what I thought about Monster Hunter Tri and I'm enjoying that solo...)

Uh... S-E... please tell me you're still going to release DQVI stateside. Please.

Wait. Is Dragon Quest X the Wii one? Poops.

Damn. Today wasn't just the announcement of the release date. I'm guessing Nintendo lift some sort of embargo on previews as well.

Oh wait, Nintendo's publishing this here? First Nintendo published Dragon Quest since the original. Kind of neat.

EDIT: Plus Club Nintendo Coins ^ _ ^

Great job publishing NOA!

Now publish some of your own damn RPGs over here!

I lol'd because it's true.

Then I cried.

In all seriousness, depending on what my gaming lineup looks like by July, I would really like to be all in on this one.

Jeremy Parish clears up some misconceptions about DQIX.

And gah! I wasn't aware there was a risk that the DQVI remake might not make it here! Everyone buy IX so I can have Vi. Do it for meeee!
