This looks incredible. I haven’t tried to play DQ3 since the game boy color version, I may give this a shot. I really don’t have time for JRPGs any more tho

Pretty daft to announce the game for "home consoles." What consoles? How are people supposed to get excited if they don't know if it is coming to the console they own?

Not into this artstyle, reminds me of those PSP final fantasy remakes.
Aka, the best versions of those games?

This remake looks great. I like the world map a lot - not being able to see where the heck you were going until you happened to stumble upon some landmark is the thing I hate most about old JRPGs.

It’s always old DQ, mind, which means lots of grinding unless they really tweaked the game’s balance. Anyway, I’ve never played DQ3, so color me interested.

Never been too interested in the older DQ but this looks really nice.
Might pick up down the line

Also slightly satly DQ gets this treatment and meanwhile.....

I just hope the dungeons are MUCH better than the ones from Octopath Traveler. Those their soooooo boring and dull.

I'd much rather have DQ 4-6 released on Switch. I don't think we really need yet another version of DQIII. I wonder if they'll put the board game sidequest back in.

I didn't care much for DQ III when I played it last year but this really gives me enough interest to give it a second go honestly.

All these "HD 2D" - Type games look inferior to just 2D sprite games. 3D depth doesn't make sprite graphics look "better"!

Only more detailed (more pixels + more sprites) 2D sprite graphics make 2D sprite graphics better.

The "HD-2D" look is just a way of convincing higher management to green-light a game with sprites, that's all.

I wish Squre Enix would stop fucking around and go full complex 2D sprites instead of frankenstein-ing a 3D/2D sprite look, because it will not look better.

Those game are clearly targeted towards people who like sprite graphics.

So what's the fucking point?

IF you want to bring 2D sprites back, DO IT THE RIGHT WAY!!!

Looks beautiful. would love to see a lot more 2D games remade an NEW games in this art style/format. I do prefer a more action type combat to turn based though. This still looks great though.

Battle system look wise reminds me of golden sun.

Was this game already remade on the ds? Not sure if I've played this.

Not quite what I expected, but I'm sure this will be awesome. DQ3 is my favourite. Looking forward to playing it for the umpteenth time. If only to see the new style and how they converted my childhood memories to current tech. I'm obviously hyped for 12 as well, but we know essentially little of it, so this is my main interest for now.

Love that they remade this again.

Omg. Erdrick. It's an honor, sir. Thou art a legend.

Heh, If I have this name, I have to do it justice when it comes to DQ as a whole. Luckily, I love the series. Of all the games to redo... So yes, I will revisit Aliahan and beyond once more Into The Legend...

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.
Ever since Octopath came out, fans have been screaming "give us Final Fantasy VI like this". So it's kind of baffling that they're instead doing this for Dragon Quest III.

It's hard to find a more popular franchise than Dragon Quest in Japan and 3 is probably the most well-known entry.

I would personally pay $1,000 for a special edition/collectors edition if this were a FFV or CT remake. It would have to include all the concept artwork and development progress as they normally would. Except, 200 pages worth!

So excited for this, but truth be told, it would be criminal if they didn't also use this tech to remake Chrono Trigger.
How receptive do you think they are to petitions? We know they are a business and money talks. I wonder if they’d budge if we manage to get a million+ co-signs on the net. 🤝
