We're actually getting Dragon Quest VII 3DS
 
and VIII

Quote:

The 3DS versions of Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past and Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King are coming west in 2016 via publisher Nintendo, the company announced during its latest Nintendo Direct.

Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past will launch in early summer 2016.

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King will be released in 2016.
Trailer for the JP version from a few years ago:



Amazing news considering the 3DS version of VII is almost 3 years old now.

Dragon Quest is pretty much the only JRPG series besides Megami Tensei that I actually play now days. The original PS1 version of VII was not particularly, based on what little I played of it, but this version is supposed fixes all the things that were wrong with it. The trailer looks awesome, in any case.

HOLY. FUCKING. SHIT.

Guess who's buying a 3DS soon.

I sunk over 150 hours into that game and never beat it...

That does look awesome. I should actually finish VIII one of these days.

Luth 2015/11/17 04:15:19

Personally I'm more excited for VIII. One of the best JRPGs ever made.

If that theme song doesn’t get you hyped to go on a big adventure, you’re lying. Someone get me a 3DS please.

US Gamer has a decent interview with the dev team behind the DQVII remake. Dunno if I'll be playing it this year but I'll definitely pick it up soon after release to help sales.

This is different than Dragon Warrior VII, right?

Howth Castle and Environs 2016/09/01 17:31:08

Dragon Quest and Dragon Warrior are the same series (DW is a localised market name that they quit using when DQVIII came out), but DWVII has been substantially overhauled for the 3DS version.

Oh I see. The customized characters threw me off. I'm actually playing this. There's a really odd mix of juvenile sex humor about "funbags," one character crying rape, and the best shield/armor I've found for the female companion being a serving tray and lingerie.

I will probably get around to playing this at some point but I still have to get through DQV and DQVI. Lots of folks say DQV is incredible but for some reason I haven't played it yet. (Probably because it's kind of expensive.)

The translation of that game is infamous but honestly it doesn't sound wildly out of step with some of the other games in the series either.

V is good. VI is... I still need to finish it. I think I was over half way but its fairly hard going. The ability system and world/level design are better than the earlier games but weak characters and lack of clear narrative goals kill momentum.
