@Quarth Short and to the point. I beat that one too.

@Quarth
Yea, I picked it up for free a couple weeks ago and was actually surprised at how much I liked it. I generally do like old games, but not usually old RPGs that require lots of grinding. But it was fun!

@rallydefault The only thing I didn't like was the "updated" graphics. Seemed odd to me. I tried 3 as well, but stopped since the graphics made me not like it. I wish they just used the original.

@komodo182 Yeah, it was quite relaxing actually. I'm OK with the graphics, but would prefer something more uniform.

@rallydefault Yeah, it wasn't too grindy and confusing as some old RPGs can be. But I used a guide at some points in the game.

Hope I'll like nr 2 as much.

So, word round the campfire is that Dragon Quest III will be the next game to get a Trials of Mana-esq remake.

@DenDen Do you mean DQ1 or Trials of Mana? Haven't played the original of either, though I have the latter in the Collection of Mana. But I think both games are pretty faithful to the originals.

I believe DQ1, besides the different graphics, only has some quality of life changes added. Otherwise it's the same game.

Trials of Mana has more changes added. Going from 2D to 3D is one. And I believe the battle system has been expanded and made more modern. But the story and dialogue should be the same.

The actual smartphone graphics are slightly better actually. The characters in the switch versions have this weird thing where they use thinner pixels than the backgrounds and look all weird.

On mobile they all look perfectly fine and uniform.

Monsters are also pixelated on mobile, which meshes better with the rest of the game.

Looks like Xbox One and PS4 will be getting this version now at the end of the year.

Yes! Lol, I was really annoyed that you had to choose between either better graphics or better sound with the 2 versions of this, given that I care a lot about both.

So glad they came up with a definitive edition. I'm selling my current copy and buying that instead.

So glad I held off any of the previous versions. Will be playing it this Christmas for sure.

I am half tempted to pick it up again on Xbox but I usually play the Switch version docked anyway.

@Dezzy @Peach64 Isn't it a port of the Switch version? So no better graphics?

The graphics on the switch version are scaled down, but that doesn't necessarily meant they permanently downgraded the capabilities of their development build.

It's most likely using performance options they can turn on and off.

Even within the switch version, you can see the game playing with the graphics whenever you take a picture using the in-game camera mode. The moment you take the picture, the graphics go fancy for a split second.

(You can test that by taking a picture with the in-game method and a normal screenshot afterwards, then comparing them in the album)

The visual side of it is almost definitely going to be the same as the original PS4 version. You really think they'd deliberately use the inferior Switch graphics for this version, just cos it saves a tiny amount of time? That would be insane, and would really undermine the idea that it's the "Definitive Edition".

I mean some of those differences between the versions, like screen resolution for example, take literally 1 line of code to change. The PS4 version is obviously not gonna go with the 540p or whatever the Switch version was. It's gonna be 1080p.
