Square-Enix recognizes interest in Dragon Quest localizations, tells fans to keep speaking up

Coming from a Polygon interview with Dragon Quest series executive producer Yuu Miyake...

"We want to get them out here. We really do! The Dragon Quest games are very text-heavy, so the time and the cost it takes to localize these and do it well is quite something. Business-wise, we have to think quite hard whether we'll make that money back from localizing to North America. It's always been a difficult decision. But the more you tell us, the louder the voices, the more likely we are to do it."

Capcom looks back on Mega Man robot masters: Elec Man

Number: DLN-008

Weapon: Elec Beam

Weakness: Rolling Cutter

A robot who controls electricity. He’s a strong enemy with speed and power to match. Take him down quickly with a weapon that plays on his weakness.

Probably my favorite of the MM1 bosses, Elec Man always felt a bit like a legit super villain. That mask and color scheme reminded me of Marvel's Electro, and his powers were the easiest to immediately equate with comic books. Super strength could be any of a billion characters. Bombs & blades too. But hurling electric beams felt right out of a Spidey comic.
