I don't know if anyone here is feeling the excitement that I am right now.

These look AMAZING. Oh my god guys, I'm freaking out.

It looks like the dungeon and town designs are faithful to the original, except everything is in 3D and greatly updated. It still has all the nostalgic charm of the original.

my favorite screen?

Yes, that is GABO RIDING A WOLF IN TOWN. The models look fantastic.

I'm so excited I'm dying. DYING

You should really join us on the Dragon Quest 7 3DS board.

That said, indeed, very cool. I'm also loving the height differential. Didn't really come off that accurately in the original. Now it looks pretty cool, and it makes hobo-link seem even more of a badass.

And I'm seeing Furigana used in the text, this means people like me who only speak and read Japanese at the elementary school level can play it.

There is quite a bit of kanji in this screen, but it looks like they have the furigana in normal text at least.

I can read both alphabets just fine, but I have a terrible time even recognizing basic words so unfortunately import is not at option for me. :< Not to mention it'd be costly (japanese 3DS and games because of region lock... ouch). I think a localization is pretty likely, though.

Go forth, and do weird and difficult things!
