While we hold our breath and await a localization announcement for Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King on the 3DS (oh please oh please oh please), promotional materials are starting to appear in Japan. Courtesy of the Nariyuki Game Shop Blog, we have this snazzy poster for Dragon Quest VIII that includes new playable party members Gerda and Morrie alongside the main cast.

The 3DS release will include full voiceovers, as well as new scenarios and the fully orchestral soundtrack from the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra. Below, we have a screenshot from the new version, as compared to a PS2 screenshot from NeoGAF users. While there is a slight visual downgrade noticeable, the fact that a game as massive as Dragon Quest VIII is coming to 3DS is impressive in and of itself. We'll keep you posted on any new developments that arise.
