It's easy to overlook the fact that Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past is getting rather close to release in the West, arriving on 16th September. The 3DS title could keep fans of the series busy for weeks and months, with this being a notoriously lengthy entry in the franchise.
As it has with complex titles in the past, Nintendo of America is running a series of videos to introduce the game to newcomers. The videos aren't quite as detailed or slick as the Xenoblade Chronicles X or Fire Emblem Fates equivalents from the past year, but they're welcome nevertheless.
We shared part one already but missed the second video, so that's below along with the latest entry that arrived at the start of this week; they give us a look at battles and class types.
Are you planning to pick this up on 3DS next month?
It's wonderful to see them actually making several trailers for it, as in actually trying to market the game this time around. Here's hoping people go and buy this, so that we might get the other 3DS Dragon Quest games while the platform is still relevant (mainly XI and the Dragon Quest Monsters remakes).
And yeah, something about that main theme always gets me, even though I don't consider myself a hugely devoted fan or anything. It's just very well composed main theme that somehow manages to tug some certain strings in my heart.
Kind of wished it was not on handheld. I enjoyed the PS1 version, but I don't know about handheld. It's mostly because I can't stream 3DS games.
I can't wait for this game. This is one of my most anticipated games.
I have it preordered. Not a huge fan of the series, but I tend to buy games, so... .
hell yeah ... now we finally talking !!!
Can't wait!! Gonna be pure bliss playing this all over again! Last time was ps1!
Im a little scare, have not played a Dragon quest game for years, but I looked up Howlongtobeat.com and its showing 100+ hours for main story.... Alarm bells go off telling me that's a bit too long. I wonder if I could even finish it
@crzysortagamer @BinaryFragger That both sucks, and sounds awesome. I always say I want a long game, then I end up never finishing them. I once stopped an rpg right before the last boss just cause I didn't have the drive to push through to the end of it.
@Nin10doh I am the same way. I downloaded Xenoblade X because it was a 100+ hr game, and now I just wished i have already beaten it, cause there are other games I want to get... Huge games are awesome!! But for me wanting to play so many different games they become a chore.
I'm pretty hyped for this it looks very good. Though I'm also slightly afraid considering the series has been more miss than hit with me.
Looking forward to it. Not sure when I'm picking it up.
Can't wait for Dragon Quest VII and VIII, my most wanted games!
Super Hyped... My ultimate game is coming next month. Yeah. Yipped. Hooray. I have always beat a DQ. I hope this one has alchemy. I love finding the items and creating weapons and armor. If it doesn't, it doesn't matter. Its Dragon Quest. The best game series ever!!
I'm onboard! I haven't played these since the NES era when they were dragon warrior in the US, but I've recently replayed Dragon Warrior and got inspired to try the series again. Can't wait!!
So it's just like IX. I'm sold even more
Missed out on DQVII on PSX so it's a day one purchase for me.
"More than 30 vocations"
I forgot about that. Not sure how, since it was kind of the worst part before. It just meant you were required to do a ton of grinding simply for skills after a while. Nothing was useful at the start, and the classes weren't well balanced, at least on the PSOne version. That's something I really hope they fixed, but one that I doubt I'll be able to figure out before I actually sit down and play it...
