Cute way to say it's exclusive, just add an S!

No way that PS4 doesn't get a GOTY edition this winter with all the features.

Or a $20 patch huehue.

I'm done with Dragon Quest if some of that shit isn't a free update for other versions. Fuck that bullshit. Making us suffer through that shitty midi and then fixing it in a new SKU. Christ.

Envy is killing me iI didnt get to play this version first. The downgrade is very much noticeable though. I'll keep telling myself that to feel better.

They did say orchestrated music only "field and battle". So I think that means no towns or dungeon.

why not both sometime in 2020 or 2021? And don't forget PC too, Squenix wouldn't give up the chance for more dlc

It's fucking bullshit that they withheld the orchestral music at initial launch. Not paying a dime for this or any sequel without orchestral music.

This shit better be patched into the PS4/PC version.

I'll gladly rebuy it. No regrets. Enjoyed the game on PS4 and will enjoy it again with all the new features on the go. Gotta support DQ in America.

Square trying to get in good with the future domestic market leader olololololol

Hate to be the one to drop this post, but....I'm actually glad I let everybody else on PS4 and PC early adopt so I could reap the benefits!

EDIT: unless Nintendo paid for exclusivity in which case woof
