You missed the world map.

But yes, it looks amazing and I'm hyped.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I haven't been paying too much attention. Are the 3DS and PS4 versions actually totally different games with the same characters/plot? It doesn't feel like they could fit the scale of the PS4 game onto the 3DS even if they make it into Atari graphics.

And yet even in the year 2016 with the most popular JRPG series in Japan, we still have to wonder if we're even gonna see this in the West.

Also, c'mon guys. Cool it with Yggdrasil, you were able to make plenty of DQ games without it, now it's just getting stale.

Actually, many DQ games had a Yggdrasil Tree in it. In fact....

DQII: A single forest tile on a conspicuous island where you got a Yggdrasil Leaf.
DQIV: A dungeon leading up to Zenithia.
DQV: A Sapling/Knick-Knack only available in the DS version that produces Yggdrasil Leaves.
DQVII: A dungeon of roots needed to clear up some drinking water in the past and place that sells Yggdrasil Dew in the present.
DQVIII: A phantom tree that only appears at night and drops a Yggdrasil Leaf.
DQIX: A place where you can gather Yggdrasil Leafs.

Granted, the Tree of Mana Yggdrasil Tree has never been more than a source of one of the Yggdrasil items beyond IV's and VII's dungeons, but its been around.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Well if the smouldering ashes of the FF franchise nonetheless make way for the greatness of DQ then I suppose the JRPG gods (goddesses?) will be placated.

(Still hyped about Berseria though myself)

Eh, recurring things like Yggdrasil are common in game franchises, most of them have something like that. Like how Crystals are often an important feature in FF games. As long as the plot's different I don't see the big deal.

This is probably the first time I really want a DQ game in my hands.  Also gonna try VIII, the unanimous fan-favourite it seems, when it's out on the 3DS.  C'mon DQ, show me what makes you so special.

I am so excited for Dragon Quest XI that I'll probably import if I get to anxious about the delay for a worldwide release.

Apparently the world is called Lotozetasia/Rotozetasia. Could be related to DQI and III, which in turn could provide interesting plot implications.

For a moment I mistook the blue haired character for the DQVI hero, looks very similar.

I hope they ditch some of the franchise's archaic traditions like endless dialogue when shopping and being only able to save in churches.

I have a weird crackpot theory for you. The cast members shown may correspond to the classes in DQ III. MC is Hero, blue hair guy is Thief (added to S.Famicom and GBC versions), blonde girls are Mage and Priest, circus guy is Goof-Off, mustache guy is Merchant, and dark-haired girl is Fighter (Martial Artist in later translations). Only one missing is Warrior / Soldier,  which could be an unseen character. Or I could be full of crap. Baseless speculation is fun!

Mine keen eyes spotted a Soldier-esque individual in three scenes of that gif Dice posted. One in the rear of the party pose scene, one in the rear of the campfire scene, and one in the fore of the kraken scene.

Frankly, I'm thinking of a mix of DQs III and IV (multiple fixed characters, but representing full class diversity this time). What is only missing right now is the Sage class.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I humbly request that we use some form of olde english slang in every post in this topic from henceforth, in honor of a new dragon quest game in the states.

Cor blimey!

TASTY!
