There's some more at the link besides the ones I put in the first post, so be sure to check those out too.

What's up with the art style, it looks different, worse. DQIX looks better art wise.

Anyway, I guess it's not high budget, more akin the DS FF remakes... Not too bad but I hope DQXI tops this by a mile.

This is by Arte Piazza, not Level-5. It looks pretty similar to Dragon Quest 5 PS2, which is the same people. Arte Piazza also has many of the original developers of DQ7.

i guess you prefer more-chibi-looking characters than less-chibi-looking characters?

That is one ugly looking game.

Seriously not trying to troll, but why do all of the characters look like they have some sort of developmental disability? Is that the original art design, or just an unfortunate direction of this particular port?

Just realized I didn't put any of the battle menu shots in there so I added them. Battles start in first-person and the camera pulls out for the action.

Can every Dragon Quest game look exactly like this please? This looks really gorgeous.

However, I am really starting to miss the DS' pixel-y fonts...

That actually looks a LOT better than i expected!

Of course this is all a moot point if we don't get that localization news one day, but yeah looks great to me!!

Did DQVII have a World Map in the original version? I put 100 hours into the game and honestly don't remember. But one of those screenshots look like it's a DQVIII style overworld rather than classic world map.

It had a classic style world map. It's been changed.

I'd expected more, imo DQVIII is still unmatched graphically.
Still, DQVII is a great classic RPG. Enough for me.
