The Dragon Quest VIII 3DS remake will be out in North America on January 20, Nintendo said today. It’ll have quick save, a “Speed Up” function in battles, and extra dungeons/quests that weren’t in the PS2 version. That means you’ve got two months to finish the 4,000-hour Dragon Quest VII.
The 3DS re-release of Dragon Quest VIII, once expected for a late 2016 release will now be out in 2017, according to Nintendo. Not a huge surprise, given that the 3DS verion of DQVII is just coming out this month.

One of the most villainous ways to raise the fear level in a game is to throw in a psycho clown. That clown is hides behind his stupid fake smile, searching for a way to earn your trust.
Via GoNintendo, here are two new commercials for the Nintendo 3DS remake of Dragon Quest VII, out in Japan this week. As expected, it looks great.
It has come to my attention that we might, within a few short years, find ourselves living on a planet devoid of Square-Enix.
