Square’s “considering” releasing Dragon Quest IX outside Japan, according to Siliconera. Amazing!

Sort of. It’s not going to happen until 2010 at the earliest, apparently. Company boss Yoichi Wada said so in a Q&A last week.

The DS RPG’s now shipped more than 3.5 million units in Japan. Which kind of means it might be a good idea to do an English language version, at the very least.

So. Yeah.
