"Square Enix Says Goodbye to Slime Knights
Dear Slime Knights,
After two eventful years, the official DRAGON QUEST online community will suspend its operations on November 30, 2007.
The SLIME KNIGHTS initiative grew out of the monumental marketing campaign for the North American release of DRAGON QUEST VIII, and continued to grow to eventually encompass DRAGON QUEST HEROES: ROCKET SLIME and DRAGON QUEST MONSTERS: Joker. It has been a long and exciting journey through which we've been able to share quite a few ups and downs, successes and shortcomings. We've learned a lot during this time, and we look forward to applying this knowledge to grander community experiences in the future.
Just because www.slimeknights.com is no longer a live destination on the internet, though, does not mean you stop being a Slime Knight. As long as you continue to share with others your passion for DRAGON QUEST you're fulfilling your role as a Slime Knight.
It's become a trite maxim, but we truly could not have had a community without your generous support and participation. You made your experiences in this community through your own effort.
And we hope you'll bring those experiences back to enrich future communities and DRAGON QUEST titles, be it in a sequel to Slime Knights or an entirely new members' space. Keep an eye on www.square-enix.com and stay in touch with your fellow Slime Knights until that time comes.
Thank you, and see you around.
I don't know if any of you know about this site. I never knew this site existed, and I love all the Dragon Quest games. It seems pretty cool, you can win prizes (that you actually want) and stuff like that.
I'm not sure but it scares me a little as a Dragon Quest fan, I love all of the games that have been released here. Does this mean some of the Dragon Quest games might not be coming to America due to sales?
I hope not. :[
