Will include street pass functionality with special lithographs you can obtain in-game. Not a whole lot of details right now.

Stuff is floating around on the web if you wanna take a look. Can't post though, of course.

Edit: Clarified some street pass stuff. Also, looks like it might actually be a full 3D remake. Awesome.

Eh, going to need a better source than just a scan, it could be a photoshop for all we know.

Right?

If true, is Arte Piazza behind it? Works since they co-developed the original, GS should help out, being Heartbeat once upon a time.

Huh, all I heard about 7 is that it was crazy long and that you had to fight god. Interested...

DQ is in the same league as Monster Hunter and the highest selling Nintendo franchises. Of all of of them DQ is probably the lowest selling one, but it's still huge.

This is just a remake, though. So expect a lot less from that.

Awesome news if true, I've been thinking about picking up the PS1 version, but its a bit expensive for a complete copy. I'd much rather wait for a new 3DS port.

I never played 7, so I'm actually really looking forward to this.

I remember thinking it looked ugly as sin in the PSX screenshots I saw back in the day. It'd probably look pretty solid on the smaller 3DS screen.

Biggest/second biggest (I'm not quite sure) third party franchise in Japan. Not exactly an unexpected occurrence as the DS remake series was very successful, and Square Enix has already released 2 Dragon Quest games on 3DS>

I wasn't a fan of VII, but I did play it many years ago. I'd try the DS games first. V seems to be the most highly acclaimed of the three.

Found it, it's in 3D as expected, only two screens (one of which is really small), looks great, much better than Monsters. :)

This one was hinted at a long time ago so I hope that means they're actually making everything 3D. Think DQIX, but better.
