sigh yet another game exclusive for the japs


Not when Nintendo publishes it here, as they have the other main-line DS games when SE decided not to.

They are 3D though or have background polygons no? Well compare it to DQ 9 in that case because I think thats the one I played. It seems similar.


Ugh, some links aren't working.

Anyways:

Don't frequent the 3DS boards often enough to know, thanks.

Can I borrow your time machine?

Is it just me or are the backgrounds just upscaled from the PSX version? The original stuff was 3D so it's fine, but everything looks laid out exactly the same.

Definately an improvement over the classic.

No, I just think they remade pretty much everything from the ground up, not a simple upscale.
They are trying to keep everything the same layout, aside from the world map and random encounters.

Maybe it's just the layouts then, there's a distinct stylistic difference between these screenshots and the way areas are designed in DQVIII and IX imo.

Erm, were you not here when Nintendo released DQIV/V/VI/IX for the DS?

I just think they wanted to be faithful to what made DQVII so awesome (and it wasn't random encounters).
It was the towns, the individual stories, the characters, and the dungeons.
Having them look the same, just in a better graphical style is perfectly fine by me, they don't need to completely alter the areas.
Plus having a similar to scale world map akin to VIII/IX.

DQVII was already my favorite game of all time, but the 3DS remake will make it undisputed.
