UPDATE: Dragon's Dogma Quest may still appear in Europe and North America, Capcom has told Eurogamer.
The company is now "evaluating" an English-language release for the PlayStation Vita exclusive.
“At present Dragon's Dogma Quest is only confirmed for release in Japan and we are currently evaluating if the title will be released in pan-western markets," a Capcom spokesperson explained.
ORIGINAL STORY: The latest issue of Japanese magazine Famitsu has revealed Dragon's Dogma Quest, a free-to-play online 2D role-playing game for PlayStation Vita.
According to Famitsu, via Siliconera, Dragon's Dogma Quest will launch in Japan this autumn. Publisher Capcom is yet to confirm a western release.
The spin-off is described as "fast-paced" - that is, it's designed to be played on the go. The focus is on strategy rather than action, and you decide your strategy based on the enemy's appearance, apparently.
There are dungeons, towns, villages and sub-quests. With online multiplayer, your four pawns can team up with a friend's four pawns, making for party maximum of eight.
We'll ask Capcom about the possibility of a UK release.
