I do wonder what sort of gameplay tweaks this will get. I tried playing some DQVI a little while back and thought the balanced seem a little off, though I don't know why. I'm not sure if it really needs remade in the same sense DQIV and V did (and DQIV DS was sorted of a bad localization of a stripped down port, compared to the PSX version) but I'd TOTALLY BE INTO balance tweaks or new classes or an immigrant town thing.

Because there can never be enough classes right? *coughDQVIIcough*

Oh ho! The one dragon quest I've always wanted to play!

I've been waiting for this too, and can't wait to pick this up. Although with all the job classes, man, can you hear the screams? That's the sound of millions of OCD completists screaming in agony over the hours they'll spend on this game.

I'm very excited for DQ VI, oh yes! 'Bout time.

I had a good time with the DQ IV remake on DS, and I recently picked up DQ V too. These, plus Dragon Quest IX on DS, plenty of DQ to go around. And DQ X on Wii of course.

perhaps OCD on my part, I noticed the backdrop on the battle scene in the scan is actually based off the normal field backdrop from the SNES DQ6, opposed to a reusing the one from IV and V DS.

And spot Slimes!!! My favorite Slime that never was seen again. (DQM games aside)

Anyhow, it appears to use the same exact engine as IV and V does, which I really liked.

DQIV and V DS both looked a hell of a lot worse than DQ6 did in its original incarnation. I mean, they pretty much looked exactly like DQ7 did, which looked a hell of a lot worse than DQ6 did.

Why not avoid the effort and just release a straight-up port? It'd look nicer and get done quicker. Does 6 even need remade?

I agree. They did improve the engine from DQIV -> DQV though, hopefully we get an improvement again.

Dragon Quest VI has just been added the Square Enix's TGS roster. Apparently playable.

Along with it, the Dragon Quest III mobile thingy, for those of you who are into cell phone gaming...*crickets*

I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Yeah, this definitely looks worse than the original.

I will admit though that the 3D does help a little despite it not really looking any better than the original. Plus I bet the interface will be significantly overhauled like DQV's was which will probably help a lot in this version.

Sweet. I was wondering the other day when this game was finally going to show up. I'm ready for some more Dragon Questing, and I've heard good things about this one. The screens look, well, like the screens from the remakes of IV and V, but that's great!

The sprite animation and effects are a step up, as are the dungeons and some of the complete redone parts.

The towns are a huge downgrade in DS 3D though, and they are using the same sprites for generic NPCs in those town. :S
