Reported leaks from this month's V-Jump.

Reported leaks from this month’s issue of V-Jump have come out of Chinese forum A9VG. Considering it’s not one of our usual sources for this type of early information, take the following information with a grain of salt until confirmed.

Here’s what the magazine reportedly confirms the following Japanese releases:

  • Dragon Quest X: The Sleeping Hero and the Guiding Sworn Friend Online Expansion Disc (Wii, Wii U, PC) – December 12 for 3,980 yen
  • Dragon Quest Monsters 2 (3DS) – January 30 for 5,490 yen
  • Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster (PS3, PSV) – December 19 for 7,980 yen on PlayStation 3 / 4,480 yen each on PS Vita
  • Summon Night 5 (PS3) – No date

Stay tuned. If true, it’s possible we’ll hear confirmation in Famitsu this week.

  • Xaltmas

    Well, there goes any chance of it leaving Japan this year.

    • マッシュー

      Yeah, we kind of expected a while ago it would hit around Jan/Feb. Which is fine, we don’t have a shortage of games anytime soon.

  • TheExile285

    $80 (Probably $40 in NA) for FFX/X-2 HD on PS3. $90 (probably $60 in NA) for both games on PSV. Thanks SE -_-

    Hopefully this reaches NA by February or March.

      I’d think the ideal NA price would be $40 on PS3 and $20 each on PSV. Though, I’m not sure if I could see them selling it for $20 a pop on Vita.

      • TheExile285

        I hope they try to add some incentive for the Vita version because otherwise they are sending it out to die :/

        • Bobby Jennings

          If only the games could have been $30 each. Either that or bundle them together in two different cartridges and sell it for $40. I don’t get what’s so damn hard SE.

          • TheExile285

            based on these prices, i think they will be $30 each in NA.

            • Bobby Jennings

              i hope :o

      • Xaltmas

        The only way I could see them being sold at $20 each is if they were digital only.

        Which, personally, I wouldn’t mind, but I know some would.

        KH 1.5 HD released recently at $40, so I expect PS3’s version to be at that. Though I expect $25 for Vita’s version. Not sure if players will compromise with extra $5 for portable’s fee.

    • zeothedeathgod

      its supposedly $40 for ps3, and $20 for each vita. it was mentioned in an interview at one time.

    • Elvick

      I’d be perfectly fine paying $30 each for physical copies of both games on PlayStation Vita. If it’s digital only, they better be $20 a pop.

  • DesmaX

    Summon Night 5 on PS3? There’s would chance for localization then (If it isn’t a PSP remaster)

    • TheExile285

      have we ever gotten a SN game?

      • DesmaX

        I think the GBA spin-offs were brough by Atlus

        • Arcana Gear

          only the first two, they were great games…. wished that they bought the last one, looks the best.

  • yuina

    Calling bullshit on this. Square would have to be monumentally stupid to drop FFX on the same day as Drakengard 3.

    • MrFinalgamer

      never underestimate Square’s stupidity

      • Budgiecat

        Why are they so dumb? Is it the fortune teller?

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      I wouldn’t be so sure. I imagine the HD remake of FFX/X-2 would actually sell better than Drag-On Dragoon 3, honestly.

      • ギャビン

        100% agree.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Plus, you have to figure… Drag-On Dragoon 3 is a PS3 exclusive, whereas FFX/X-2 HD will be on PS3 and Vita which means more opportunity for sales. I just honestly believe there’s more of a fanbase for FF ANYTHING than Drag-On Dragoon, lol.

          • https://twitter.com/GaleGlory89 KiQun

            That goes without saying. Drakengard/Nier’s fanbase or cult is small. But for those desperate for a localization, it’s quite hard blow. Even Yoko Taro shows interest to support fan’s petition for localization on his twitter and facebook.

      • yuina

        That’s what I was getting at. Drakengard is going to be DOA.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Oh. I guess it was just the way you worded it. I thought you were saying they would be stupid to try and sell it on the same day due to competition :P

          • Budgiecat

            Uuuuuuuuugh

    • bloodiOS

      It’ll be just the excuse they need to shaft DOD permanently.

  • InternatlGamer3

    I did a little research and found out “Summon Night was acquired by Banpresto. In turn making it owned by Namco-Bandai. Thank God Namco ownz SN. I like SE to a point but they’d ruin the series.
    This may be a bit off topic but we can all agree SquareSoft > Square-Enix anyday.

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Oh yes, because North America gets soooooooo many Namco Bandai games. Yep. Lots of hope there.

      *rolls eyes*

      • Rydak

        I know… I loved the two Swordcraft Story games on GBA and the Twin Age game on the DS, but those were brought over by Atlus. I don’t think NB has brought over any of the Summon Night games. T_T

      • 永次

        North America is not the center of the Earth, no one care about that country.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          I suppose it’s a good thing you’re not the “center of the Earth” either, otherwise your opinion would actually be fact.

    I just hope Summon Night 5 for the PS3 will be something more than just a HD remaster!

  • tubers

    I bet the VITA ones would cost no less than $ 29.99 ea.

  • new_tradition

    If the release date is true, I’m gonna hope that FFX/X-2 get’s a same month release world wide then. I still remember being surprised when Duodecim was announced for March around the world ^^

  • LastBoss

    Not Game Wishing folks, but I would absolutely love DQ 10, on the Vita!!!

    I need to follow it more often as well.

    I’m thinking of snagging a copy DG3.
