D3 Publisher wants to release Dream Club Zero for PS4 and PC in the west

Will the Dream Club series finally make it out in English?

Dream Club Zero

D3 Publisher wants to release Dream Club Zero, the prequel entry in the Dream Club dating simulation series, for PlayStation 4 and PC in the west.

Speaking to DualShockers at Tokyo Game Show 2018 in September, D3 Publisher executive producer Nobuyuki Okajima said that the company might consider releasing some of its older games in North America and Europe. Okajima mentioned that he would consider bringing Dream Club Zero west for PlayStation 4 and PC, but is not sure whether a western release would be possible without issues.

Okajima said the same for Happy Manager on PlayStation 4. While he would like to release it in the west, there were “a few issues with the game” that even made a Japanese release difficult. However, after being told about Steam’s recent policies that would permit its release, Okajima said he would consider bringing it out for PC.

Dream Club Zero was first released for Xbox 360 in Japan in January 2011, followed by PS Vita as Dream Club Zero Portable in December 2011, and PlayStation 3 as Dream Club Zero: Special Edipyon! in January 2013. Happy Manager was released for PlayStation 4 in January 2018.

D3 Publisher recently began in-house efforts to expand west. It is publishing Earth Defense Force 5 in North America and Europe on December 11, followed by Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain in 2019.
