Dragon Quest VII 3DS Remake Imagery Looks Mighty Fine

Gaze upon this loveliness and hope for a global release date!

RPG fans were delighted by Square-Enix’s recent plans to revamp and rerelease Dragon Quest VII on the Nintendo 3DS. With development well underway, the videogame giant has seen fit to show off some screenshots of the project itself, and we must say it’s looking pretty gosh-inducing.

Siliconera has rounded up a wealth of imagery to be perused, which showcases a variety of gameplay elements from conversation to battle and exploration.

“Ugh, I get this all the time… look, I know I have a pointy green hat, but I’m NOT Link, alright?”


“This your grandmother’s engagement ring? Too bad, I’m taking it down the pawnbrokers, bwahahaha!”

Comparing these images with those from the much beloved Dragon Quest IX on the Nintendo DS is like night and day. Square-Enix seem to have gone all out in bringing this roleplaying classic to the 3DS with style, and with an orchestral soundtrack promised it seems the audial experience isn’t going to disappoint either.

“Help me move this thing, we’ll make a fortune on eBay.”

The classic Dragon Quest art is in full effect, promising a vast world to explore and a ton of characters to meet, greet and inevitably perform all kinds of dangerous quests for. The monsters are just as outlandishly silly as we remember them, offset by the classic battle system that’s underpinned the franchise for years.

Dragon Quest VII on the 3DS is currently slated to release in Japan on February 7th, 2013. An international release is yet to be announced, but we hope Square-Enix will make it happen, as this certainly looks to be the perfect remedy for 3DS fans in need of some epic RPG action.


“Run for the hills, it’s a trio of floating exploding yellow numbers!”


“Ugh, who did that? That STINKS.”

    So, it’s going to be like DQ IX ?
    This might be a worth try.

    If it’s like DQIX (customisable characters, quests etc.) then I’ll try it. If not, then I’m not sure…
