Full 3D remake adds StreetPass functionality.

A Dragon Quest VII remake is in development for 3DS, the latest issue of Jump reveals. It will launch in Japan in February 2013.

The full 3D remake will allow players to use the system’s StreetPass functionality to exchange “special lithographs.”

Thanks, FF-Reunion.

  • sweet !!!!!!!

  • Cool. It’s a pretty good game (if a little too long for its own good and takes forever to get going), though GOD WAS IT UGLY. Easily the cheapest looking RPG on the PSX.

    Hope the remake will make it a little easier on the eyes :-)

    • Dean Winchester

      This remake is coming to a handheld that produces visuals barely better than the PSX.

      Dont get your hopes up.

      • You should try putting forth an argument with actual backing, Malcolm.


        Most 3DS games aren’t this sexy, that’s for sure, but you’re placing blame on the system when you should be placing it on the developers. If these two games – especially RE: Revelations – are able to produce such visuals, everyone else can do the same.

        Saying “This remake is coming to a handheld that produces visuals barely better than the PSX” is just ignorant, and does nothing but highlight your blatant fanboyism.

          Extra points for posting some Jill Boobs!

    I would love a new Dragon Quest like X on 3DS. But I guess the DS also started out with remakes so perhaps this is the first step.

  • This is awesome BUT! the rumors about Enix buying its competition must be true. Aquaresoft games like FF have been taking big blows while DQ games are looking better than ever and come out more often. No remake of FF7 even do they would make billions and put COD sales to shame… but they remake this.. not that there is anything wrong with remaking DQ but come on.

  • whiteferrero


    Am hoping for the awesomeness that is localization.

  • FaithlessMr

    Oh god.





    The rumours were true! The rumours were true! Someone said a long time ago that a sucessful Square Enix game, pertaining to a long running franchise, bearing the number “Seven” on it would be remade for the 3DS, and they were right!

    This instantly became my most expected game of the now.

    • Dean Winchester

      Your dropping of the F-bomb in your comment is completely pathetic.

      • FaithlessMr

        Your attempt to actually attack me or make me feel aggravated over my comment is completely pathetic, Malcolm.

        Sad thing is, I actually mistook you for someone that was intelligent and mature enough to never do such a thing, despite your posting history. I guess I was wrong.

  • awesome, just awesome…………..wait whos da strange creature between da protagonist and Keifer?

  • yeah,let back the old days,i still Remember everything in ps 1 :D

    wow,i love those characters <3

  • holly

    Sweet, hopefully they will bring it together with Bravely Default to the west. And now remakes of Final Fantasy V + VI for the 3DS plx ;)

  • LordKaiser

    I hope is a Full remake and only the plot remains. DQVII was the black sheep of the series. It was horrible!

  • new_tradition

    I never played any DQ game except 8, but I liked that one. Might check this one out…

  • InsaneChronos

    This is not a remake. This game is a remaster.

    • FaithlessMr

       Hm…but it’s being remade in 3D and they’re adding new features. What is it about this game that makes you think this is a remaster and not a remake? Aren’t they making this from the ground up, following a set of established criteria set forth by the original game? What would you consider a remake, if you don’t mind me asking?

      • InsaneChronos

        Sorry, I can’t fully explain this in english, but a remake is a completely remade version of a work, not an upgrade.

        • Claude

          It’s not an upgrade, it’s a remake.

        • FaithlessMr

          Okay, I understand, thank you for taking your time to reply back still :)

  • GetOffMy_Lawn

    Really excited, SE, just make sure you localize it! And DQ X. And Bravely Default. And Type-0. And finish Versus XIII. And FF X HD. And XIII-3.

  • Looks like another reason for me to get a 3DS. xD


  • PrinceHeir

    so all that’s left to remake is Dragon Quest I-III huh??

    so square what about a remake of FFV-FFVI

    doesn’t have to be 3D. just make it like FFI-FFII Anniversary edition or FFIV Complete Edition
    full widescreen sprites and just make it HD.

    FFVIII remake also!!

    FFVII is to big of a budget, and FFIX needs sakaguichi to monitor if they plan to remake it.
