  3. Dragon Quest VIII remake for Vita...

Operation Rainfall is reporting on a blog post from a musician who worked on previous DQ games that DQVIII (PS2) is being remade for the Vita:

Hardly rock-solid confirmation of the title's existence, but it would be a pretty big deal for Sony's handheld. I thought Nintendo had an ironclad stranglehold on the Dragon Quest franchise.

If this happens I would definitely get it. I'm skeptical about a U.S. release though, Square-Enix has been very reluctant to release DQ in the west. Usually Nintendo has to coerce SE and sometimes Nintendo even has to publish it themselves (Like with Dragon Quest IX, for example).

If it does happen (I don't think it will, because from what I saw the "source" says nothing about it coming to the Vita at all, only that it would work better on it), it would probably never leave Japan.

So this would be another Pirate Warriors 2 fiasco? Yay for that!

That's not what it says. Real translation:

DQ is tied to Nintendo now, anyway.

Ah well. Would have been nice to know that a remake of VIII was being made already, no matter what.

VII and VIII were actually the exceptions to DQ being on Nintendo. Now VII is being made on the 3DS, it'd be hard to believe VIII would to Vita. Could be, but unlikely.
