Having the protagonist move around while everyone else just stands still is pretty awkward too.

Doesn't seem like there's much reason to play on free movement mode to be honest

Game looks soooooo good. Hopefully they will announce a localization at E3 or PSX.

"developing for 2 consoles at once"

I like how they basically just pretend the Switch version doesn't exist

Maybe they haven't started development yet? I mean they have 2 different teams for each version. Having 3 teams would be overkill.

I love all the details like the cactus enemies trying to hide with the actual cacti. The MC wiping his brow as he runs through the desert is great too.

I really wish they would have at least put some reverb on the music. Synth doesn't have to sound this brittle.

Def gonna play this in classic mode. The movement stuff in battle just looks awkward when everyone else is standing in a line like traditional DQ. No biggie.

Also what Aeana just said.

Loving the look of this.

What's the realistic timeframe of this being localized? Likely summer next year?

The synth is honestly worse quality than the original version of DQ8 released 13 damn years ago.

Yep, classic mode all the way for me.

Also, did they said anything about the length of the game?

Graphics great, synth lazy. =(

I really liked how the Scorpion turned around and flashed the markings on its back for that attack.

I was kind of thinking the cheap synth was intentional since it's about harkening back to the old games.

Though... yeah even then it's still pretty bad. Just get good sounding synth

Wow the 3DS version literally sounds a little better than the PS4 version.

3DS synth seems to sound just fine.
EDIT: I take it back, it's also a bit brittle.

An orchestrated soundtrack and full voice acting will obviously be included once they remake this game in like 10 years.

1st world map really small, hope they have some surprise bigger world or multi world in pocket.

This is the first confirmation we have that the scripts in all 3 versions are exactly the same. Someone was asking about that earlier.

What about animating monster sprites?

Missed the PS4 footage it seems. Like the 2D mode's look. Wish they were in a place other than a wasteland though :p.

Damn it I want both of these versions. Why are they trying to make me play/buy the same game twice!? (Not that we'll necessarily get the 3DS version in the west)

Just got back from the event. I wanted to watch the live show but there was so many people I couldn't even see or hear anything from where I was.

I'll post pictures of the event and some information from the Horii/Sugiyama/Toriyama interview in the new couple of minutes.

Deep in my heart, I keep hoping that the final game will have better quality music, and what we have been hearing is just a result of Sugiyama/JASRAC being shitty about showing the game on streams.

Dare to dream. :(
