OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Smilie Smilie Smilie Smilie Smilie Smilie

Didn't own that specific episode yet (even pondered importing Dragon Warrior VII at some point).

Now at least here's a good chance of the game finally reaching PAL territories. That little screenshot up there seems to indicate a considerable graphical overhaul (at least a departure from the mixture of 3D environments with 2D sprites on top of the original VII as well as the DS versions of IV, V and VI). I certainly hope that Square Enix will pull all stops in terms of eye candy, like they clearly did with Bravely Default.

*Mourns over depleted hope of FF7 Remake*

Anyways, bring it over Square and I'll get excited. Bravely Default too while you're at it. Smilie

Where is my FFV remake on 3DS Square! Smilie

Cool news! This was my first DQ game (I knew it as Dragon Warrior), and it really broadened my RPG horizons away from just Final Fantasy. I went on to love DQVIII, and came back and beat this one properly. 

The graphical overhaul looks great. I wonder if they'll remix the music, too. Someday, when I have a 3DS, I'll buy this and the other 20 games I want. 

How dare they tease FFVII lovers like that, though...

Like video game music?!

Nice!

You wanna go here if you likes Prons. [url]

Updated with a few new details (thanks Az) - Developer, orchestrated soundtrack confirmed!

I got my wish! The soundtrack will be even more marvelous now. I hope Sugiyama directs and conducts per usual. 

Having played the game, the only thing I don't get is the subtitle.
