Because that's unnecessary and makes things take way too long. And besides, III is the odd one out for not having first-person battles. Every other game in the series has them.

Slow-ass third-person view in battles is of the reasons Dragon Quest VIII is my least-favorite in the series.

For those players who don't speak Australian, we have provided an English translation of the previous scene. Do you want to replay the scene?

Technical limitations

Even though EO4 did it without a problem.

That's half right. Your party members are still cardboard cutouts.

Iunno, it'd be nice, although personally, I'm fine with however they do it.

I'm on the fence about it, at least this isn't a dungeon crawler....

I love games where you see your party.

I refuse to play Etrain or any dungeon crawler RPG played the Etrain demo and almost broke 3DS.

It's unnecessary.

It's what admits to an aesthetic choice and doesn't change gameplay in anyway.

For a handheld game I want fast battles.

The main reason was probably technical limitation.

Also, if the battle was similar to Nocturne, we probably wouldn't have as much demons to collect. Development is all about balancing resources and making strategic sacrifices.
