    Default How many dragon quest games have been released in the US

    I am trying to get all the Square releases that are RPG themed, Kingdom Hearts, FF, Chrono... the only other series seems to be Dragon Quest, but what games were released in the US for what system?

    Also I think a DQ IX for DS is upcoming.

    Although Dragon Warrior/Quest is published by Enix.
    They aren't Square releases.

    Edit:
    Oh yeah, DQ VIII and the DS ones are Squareenix though.

    In a sense, there have only been 3 Dragon Quest games in the US so far:

    -Dragon Quest VIII
    -Dragon Quest Rocket Slime
    -Dragon Quest Monsters Joker

    Before Enix merged with Square, all games were localized with the Dragon Warrior name on NES, GBC and PS1. The list above seems to hit all those. Somehow they were able to acquire the original name around the time of the merger.

    In 1980 SPI released a roleplaying game called Dragon Quest, (the second edition was printed in 1981) they went bankrupt in 1982, and were bought out by TSR. TSR held onto the trademark for 5 years, at which point in '87 they released Dragon Quest as a supplement for D&D. And again in '92 as it's own seperate board game. The trademark's run out now, which is why Enix was free to snap it up.
