Dragon Quest VII Remake Coming Next Year To Nintendo 3DS

Square Enix has announced that they’re remaking Dragon Quest VII exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS. Details are rather scarce regarding the remake, but it should be arriving in Japan sometime during February 2013.


    1. Most think it’s the best of the series. There’s just something about Square and the number 7 isn’t there?

    2. Dq 7, 8 and 9 are renowned to be the best jrpgs in the series and, to my knowledge, only appeared on ps2.

      1. Yeah, I’ve never heard of it but I’m sure it’ll sell like iphones- thanks!
        And no Vita.

  1. I think square might be trolling people with this remake.
    Oh well, I’ve never played seven might as well try it.

  2. Awesome, I’m guessing it will get localized, like 4, 5 and 6 did. Can’t wait, haven’t played 7 or 8 yet.

    1. dq8 was one of the best jrpg’s to make it overseas. It’s so deep and fuul of secrets that give it a ton of replay value. Not only that, but it’s long as hell when level grinding. When you thought you beat it, there’s like a hundred more things to do, and when you actually beat it they yet again throw a new trial in your face. And the level up system is so intuitive, you cant make a super-powerful multi-weapon character, but you can make a superpowerful single weapon character, and that pushes you to replay the game and beat it with completely new weapon skills each time.

  3. Oh sweet, another epic 3DS coming to Euro- o wait its Dragon Quest, we’ll never see it -____- fucking Square Enix assholes. “oh gee, we had such a massive success with Final Fantasy out of Japan, should we release all our games there? LOL no. Lets just publishs open world games. People from the West just play GTA right?”

    C. U. N. T. S.

    1. I wouldn’t be so quick to doubt…

      DQIX was one of the best selling DQ games in the west thanks to Nintendo handling publishing.

  4. This little thing just keeps on giving……. If this was announced for the vita it would be hailed as the ”saviour” , but for 3ds is just another game to add to the 10 must buys for next year…

  5. 7 is regarded to be the worst in the series as takes forever to get going (heard rumours of an hour before the first slime) Still. More Dragon Quest is always great.

    1. In Japan, it’s actually one of the best. And no, no battles for a while in the beginning because the story is CRAZY strong. But an hour is an exaggeration.

    1. They dont need to remake it for 3ds just ad 3d clean the jaggies and ad boss mode and i will be happy,also a cool mission mode that puts you against difrent monster and bosses ,exsample:mission 1 beat boss using tifa cloud and aeries whit out using healing magic but potions and buff magics are ok

  6. Awesome. Just another reason to own a Nintendo handheld at least in Japan. (can someone confirm if this game is in the ps vita’s ps one compatibility list?)

  7. oh shit it’s official vita is dead dec 2011 oct 30 2012 good for being a waste of time and manpower rip

  8. Wait… I just looked at some screenshots. Why bother remaking 7? It looks perfectly fine. It doesn’t look like you could do anymore with it on the 3DS.

  9. Yes!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ll buy it day one. This exactly what the 3DS needed. The more RPGs the system has the better. Here’s to hoping for remakes of DQVIII, FF V, FFVI, and FFVII.
