I have to say I'm kind of shocked we're getting this and not DQ 7.
Maaaan, yeah. I wanted DQ7 a lot -- I honestly loved the original and it would've been nice to play it with a reasonable translation.

Okay, having actually watched the trailer-
1. I like the big-headed dragons. A lot.
2. Baking QTEs and minigames into crafting iiiiisn't something I'm generally fond of. I think I might've mentioned this once or twice but like Ultima 7 is one of my favorite games ever and making stuff in that was just click flour, click water, click bowl, click oven. DONE, YA GOT BREADS. Very direct -- no obtuse minigames or skill systems to trip over.
This is something I reaaaaally like about Atelier Iris too -- the alchemy was /really/ straightorward in terms of how you actually did it.
Basically my interest in using a crafting system is entirely related to how many hoops I have to jump through to craft.
3. Combat looks kind of blef. Like okay I had some issues with Rogue Galaxy's combat, but there was a fair bit going on it that, so ultimately I did like it.
In this it's like... You can block, strafe, and stab. And it looks slow. Woo?
