    Truly a great homage for series known for its riveting stories.
    How about giving homage to the original by making a ultima/wizardry style game?
    How about hiving homage to dq 6 by making a modern version of the dual world concept?
    Oh wait,let's just add references.You know,like all the modern remakes/homages do.

    I don't hate the game.Just expected something more from a homage game.

    Dragon Quest 11 is the last DQ game, that's why it's entirely based on referencing the rest of the series. It's the franchise's swansong.

    XII doesn't exist

    At most I'd just kind of expect them to have the kind of stuff Dragon Ball gets away with, (violence...maybe some boobs but probably not) and a darker, but not dull, color palette. The opening cinematic stuff in DQ11 had a darker palette at times, and moodier atomphere, than the game. Since they're remaking DQ3 at the same time, they probably saw this as a chance to do something a little different from normal with the series. Wonder if the new Yakuza has anything to do with the change too, since Dragon Quest plays a part in it.

    CRPGs in the '90s and early 2000s could dip into that 100 hour range, so I wouldn't be too worried about having good C&C.

    Just got XI, VIII was one of my favorite PS2 games.

    It feels so good just to run around and listen to the music, a very relaxing game.

    someone made a tool/script that allows hacking the Party Chat dialog back into an english-language rom of DQ 4 on NDS:

    https://github.com/concreted/dqiv-nds-en-script-patcher

    you'll need to acquire both a japanese ROM of dq4 and your english-lang ROM of dq4, though this is easy enough,

    Actually, reading this through it seems to be somewhat of a lengthy process to get this working. Seems doable. I'm lazy though so I'll wait until someone does the process (using python 3) and generates a patched jpn ROM w/ english script + party chat and uploads it somewhere.

    I recommend a music mod then since even the definitive edition of XI doesn't have a lot of good songs because Sugiyama is a lazy old fuck.
    There are tons of those on nexus but i recommend v5 of this one https://www.nexusmods.com/dragonquestxisdefinitiveedition/mods/5
    since it has a lot of DQ8 songs (DE only has the over world theme by default).

    TheSentinel I recommend editing out the link as it might be viewed as against the rules; other than that yeah and thanks! I imagined it would happen eventually, glad it did.

    What I wanted for the future of the series, or whatever the last question was: Keep it turn-based and classic jrpg.
