Are The 3DS Versions Of Dragon Quest VII & VIII Coming West?

We’ve known for a while now that Dragon Quest VII and VIII are being remade for the 3DS in Japan, but have heard no news regarding whether or not the games would be localized.

However, though there still isn’t an official announcement, the word in the herd is that Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii already has localizations in the works. French fan site Final Fantasy Ring published an interview with Horii, though later on they reported that he implied that both games would be released in French.

If this information does end up being true, then it seems very likely that it would receive the same treatment elsewhere. An announcement apparently wasn’t planned, though I wouldn’t be surprised to hear something regarding these game’s at the next big gaming event.
