The series is well-known for cleaving to tradition and keeping things similar through all of its various iterations. While well-loved in its homeland of Japan, Dragon Quest has had a tough time finding footing in North America. “Dragon Quest 9” (“DQ9”) actually scared Japanese fans quite a bit during its development cycle, as it was revealed to have an action-based battle system that flew in the face of tradition.
