While today sees the launch of Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 in North America, there's more Dragon Quest news to go around, as Square Enix has confirmed it's remaking Dragon Quest Monsters (or Dragon Warrior Monsters as it's also known) for the 3DS.

The Game Boy Color original was the first game in the series to make it to North America and Europe back in 1999, but the upcoming remake will include plenty of new content: Square Enix has confirmed the monsters from DS outing Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 Professional will all feature alongside brand new stories, monsters and items.

The revamped game — called Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry's Wonderland 3D to give it its full title — will see release in Japan in 2012.
