We've had a look at Square Enix's 3DS remake of the Game Boy Color RPG before, but now the wait is finally over — the title has launched in Japan and gamers lucky enough to be equipped with a Japanese 3DS can at last enjoy this Slime-filled RPG. In case you were wondering, we're lucky enough.

We've played the opening portion of this game and have come away very impressed indeed. The gorgeous graphics seem to be giving the 3DS a real workout and the plot has that classic Dragon Quest balance of charm and adventure, so we can only hope that gamers worldwide will get to play this wonderful game sooner rather than later. In the meantime, gaze longingly at our exclusive video below and look forward to more coverage here on Nintendo Life very soon.
