I'm not sure what our resident DQ fangirl mod's feelings are on this, but yay anyway!

Oof, I've been so busy at my new job that I didn't even see this thread.

I am psyched, but frustrated! The other DQ games that have come out for 3DS so far have zero announcements about coming to America. I am just so upset by the region locking on the 3DS, man. If this and Rocket Slime 3DS come out for this region, I'll be a happy camper.

Dragon Quest VII has a very special place in my heart. If nothing else, I'm using this as an excuse to finally make my DQ7 costume dreams come true in 2013. ;)

As long as they rebalanced the start game difficulty and allow me to...

[spoiler]Get Keifer and Aira back on my team, seriously, they made Keifer seem so important and he fucking leaves forever before you can even change classes.[/spoiler]

I'll be happy with just that.

You mean having both of them at the same time, right? 'cause I thought [spoiler]Aira stays until the end[/spoiler].

[spoiler]No, Aira leaves and Maribel comes back, making your final party Hero, Gabo, Maribel and Melvin.[/spoiler]

Oh, weird. I thought I got to the end! I guess I didn't. I have 130 hours on my save file and I still haven't beaten it. :( Now I don't have both discs, but I think I still have disc 2 and my memory card around if I can just get a working PS2 in my house.

#7 Arc_The_Lad on 6 years ago

I could be wrong, I haven't played it in bloody AGES.

Edit - OK I remember [spoiler]Keifer never comes back but you can keep using Aira if you want, you can just swap characters, but that is post game.[/spoiler]

#8 Michi on 6 years ago

Makes sense, since Aira was my favorite. :heart: This remake is getting me off my butt to finally cosplay her next year, I think!

Seeing this makes me wanna pick up a Dragon Quest game and give it a try. They look like a lot of fun though. :'D

Dragon Quest is not an easy game, but once you beat one the knowledge you gained will help with other games.

It looks good, though I don't see why Gabo needs to be on a wolf in the field. I get it, feral child.

I would recommend something like Dragon Quest IX for starters, or VIII if you can find it. :)

Yes, Dragon Quest 9 is AMAZING, I love that game.

It is even more fun when you have 3 other friends playing it at the same time :D

#14 DarkFujin on 6 years ago

I'm a Dragon Quest noob, and DQ9 was amazing. I highly recommend that for starters.

Or if you want a watered-down Dragon Quest style of experience, try Denpa Men. I believe it was created by someone who worked on various Dragon Quest games, and it definitely has a Dragon Quest-like vibe to it, but it's a lot simpler of a game.

i have the 4th DQ game for the DS and the 8th one for the ps2. the ironic thing was on the 8th version i had almost beat the game and all i had to do it find one person and i could have been done with it in a snap. but at the time i did not know that; so i started a new game and went though it again.

the 4th one for the ds i have yet to beat, i just need to level up my characters more.
