Since Nintendo published Dragon Quest VI and IX I think is reasonable to expect that the same will happen with VII.

Edit: from Siliconera...

Dragon Quest VII: Warriors of Eden upgrades

Quote
A remake often is also a port, but people ironically seem to call mostly direct ports remakes.

So here's a handy dandy guide, as the guy I'm quoting pointed out there's some confusion up in this bitch:

A port's a direct code translation from one architecture to another. Shenmue 2 on the XBox was a port of the Dreamcast game.

Sometimes you get added content with a port, or a new script, in which case you can called it an 'enhanced port'. This would be the DS version of Chrono Trigger. Or the DS version of Dragon Quest IV, although that was more of a gutted-ass port of the PSX remake. With a bad translation.

If you get a remake, it's implied that the entire game has been redone, in some sense. Like this DQVII remake.

Sometimes, you just get an emulator bundled with a rom of the game which has been hacked to play FMV somehow, such as the PSX version of FFVI.

And on really rare, truly special occasions, you get a box full of musical tarantulas.

Additionally you'll also have remakes that are so remade they change genres almost completely like in the case of Lufia DS: Curse of the Sinistrals.

Also there's the Fire Emblem 3 clause where a remake ceases to be a remake and becomes a sequel if at least 50% of the content is new and does not consist of either DLC or one really long and grindy dungeon that takes as much time to slog through as the rest of the original game combined.

It's been a while since we've heard word on localizations of Dragon Quest games since Joker 2, so I'm somewhat doubtful this and other more recent titles, like Slime Mori Mori 3 and Terry's Wonderland, will see light outside Japan, since Square-Enix has given up on the series and Nintendo has had to step in to translate them. Good news, regardless.

I know what you mean, but I'm expecting both of those to get an announcement next year, even if Nintendo has to get involved again.

How did DQ 6 do? Well enough for it to pay off for Nintendo?

IX did but I'm not too sure about VI.

Either way though I just hope it doesn't come at the expense of another one of Nintendo's RPGs.

Yeah, I already own DQ7. I'd rather have Bravely Default than this again.

Ideally I'd like to have both though.

Now its fixed.

Because seriously, Chapter 6 was unnecessary and diminished Psaro's character arc by giving him a cheap out. Though that's not to say it was a terrible port since it was still worth it just to get the Chapter 5 party off AI control.

Also what the fuck are Bairns and where can I find them? [/rhetorical question]

Am I the only one that liked Dragon Quest II? I think that game deserves a full remake. They've neglected the first three games when it's come to the DS or 3DS remakes.

As far as I know the Super Famicom versions are the best versions of the first three games that you are gonna find. Those has not been released outside of Japan but I think there are some fan translations, I'm not sure though.

I really wish they'd bring over the Dragon Quest Anniversary Collection. The Loto trilogy in both NES and SuperNES versions? Yes please.

New screens. Purely from a graphical perspective, it looks like a completely new game. Amusingly, my first reaction was horror at seeing the return of those obnoxious crystal puzzles from the first island.

Also, no random encounters, as you can tell by the field screen.

PS: Gabo looks adorable.
