At today’s Nintendo summit, it was announced that Nintendo and Square Enix have come together to publish and market the record-breaking Dragon Quest IX in North America this year. After selling over 4.1 million copies in Japan alone, the title will finally be crossing the ocean in just a few months, but Square Enix won’t be doing the heavy lifting alone. Square Enix was non-committal at best when discussing the possibility of bringing the first DS Dragon Quest title across the Pacific, but apparently, with some encouragement from Nintendo, it will finally happen. While there have been no official release dates announce, I wouldn’t be expecting to see it before late summer.
