Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past had a fairly lengthy showcase on the Nintendo Treehouse stream today, giving us a good look at how well it's transitioned to 3DS. We also heard how fan-power made the localisation happen, with letters from fans in France apparently being the key motivation for Square Enix.

In any case, the demonstration ended without a release date, yet the game's Nintendo E3 web page has been updated - it looks set to arrive on 16th September. We should treat that as the North American release date, though hopefully PAL details won't be far behind.

Are you planning to pick this up in September? Let us know.
