3DS up 500 bazillion units sold.

Febuary 2013 in Japan only.

Dragon Quest VII Remake

I swear to god if they don't bring this to North America i'm going to kill reggie. I have this game for PS1 and it looks like with this remake its going to be Dragon Quest 8 style.

The graphics on the PS1 version aren't the best honestly DQ5 & 6 on Super Famicom looked better but the games story was a lot of fun to follow through on. The game is also RIDUCULOUSLY LONG! Seriously people actually complain that this game is TOO LONG! LOL

It was also the best selling PS1 game in Japan. In other words this is really good news for 3DS owners.

UPDATE: As well as being a full 3D remake, the game will also feature a full orchestraded score!

I remember it took me 200 hours to finish the main story, and I never did all of the optional quests. Not the best game I've ever played, but one of the longest and deepest single player RPGs. It deserves better than what was basically a 1st gen PS1 game's presentation (the dev cycle was quite long to go with the game's length); hopefully they'll bring it overseas.

Never played it. From what I can tell in that pic, the graphics look pretty nice. I just started Tales of The Abyss (3DS) for the first time and while the graphics are not bad by any means, they are a bit jaggier than i expected. Was it really just as jaggy on PS2? I remember Symphonia looking a bit better.

The graphics are not that jaggy on that game. And the story gets pretty interesting as you progress.

It is just in certain areas (starting area). The fighting, overworld, and other areas look pretty nice.

Don't spoil anything, but Luke is really making me angry :P. I do wish the appearance of my character running around changed when I switched who I use in combat, like it does in Symphonia. Though right now I only have him and Tear.

Back to DQ7. Are there any better pics? And if I recall, the originals graphics were rather bad, but these look pretty nice.

If it sees an import I'll buy it most likely. I never got into the Dragon Quest series as a kid and really enjoyed IX on the DS as my first entry into the franchise.

OMG,this is awesome!!!!!!!

Now do V & VI again.

For 3DS.

:P

I really hope we get this. They did a great job with DQ on the DS and the 3DS is in dire need of RPG's.

You mean I don't have to pay hundreds of $$$ just to play this game now? Good.

#12 Posted by turtlethetaffer (17080 posts) -

That sounds great. I hope it comes to America. There are a few different games that look good on 3DS, and this would help me want to buy it, since I enjoyed the DQ games I payed on the DS. (All of the main ones except IV.)

Uhhh? What are you taling about?

Anyways this game is actually really good from what I remember the music is also pretty good. The graphics weren't that great even for a PS1 game but everything else pretty much makes up for it, like the story and music and classic DQ gameplay fun!

I'll be getting it.

It originally released in small quantities on PSone, so not many people have had access to it, and now it's going for hundreds of dollars new on Amazon. Since it's getting remade on 3DS I won't have to pay more than $40 for it now (if it gets localized).

Right that makes sense :P I was lucky enough to find the PS1 version at a garage sale for $5 :D

Wow, that's amazing luck.

Yeah Nintendo has localized all the other Dragon Quest games on the DS so hopefully they localize this game and DQX when it comes out on Wii U.

I depends if Nintendo picks up it. Squareenix won't release it in the west.

I have the PS1 version. I'd rather stick with that because I like the 2D sprite graphics more.

Grrr....Why couldn't Final Fantasy been in front of that VII?!...:x

It's cool bro, if you haven't noticed Square has been remaking the Final Fantasy games in order just like they are doing with Dragon Quest. FF3 & FF4 were both remade for the Nintendo DS and are exellent by the way. So hopefully we get 5 & 6 on 3DS. And to be honest I would much rather see a full 3D remake of 6 in the style that they are doing for DQ7 then to see a remake of FF7.

Dragon Quest IX is probably the easiest dragon quest in the series :s
