This morning, news is making the rounds of a Dragon Quest VII remake for the Nintendo 3DS. This is not a resurfacing of the rumor that was posted late last year to this effect. Many were speculating that a 3DS remake of either DQ7 or Final Fantasy VII was in development.

Dragon Quest VII has been confirmed for the 3DS via Jump Magazine in Japan, and it is currently set to release February 7th 2013 for 6090 yen. Several features to the game are highlighted in Jump Magazine, including some Streetpass and Wi-Fi capabilities.

The soundtrack will be performed by the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra. Additionally, Dragon Quest VII: Warriors of Eden will feature new content in its story and other aspects.

Dragon Quest VII (Dragon Warrior VII in the USA) was originally released on the Playstation One almost twelve years ago. Did anyone get the chance to enjoy this classic game in its day?


Nintendo of America has localized almost every single Dragon Quest on the Nintendo DS at this point. They (with some help from Square-Enix) brought us all three games in the Zenithia Trilogy, as well as the famed Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies. While no news has been offered as to the fate of Dragon Quest X in the west, as of yet, we can only hope news of this newly announced remake will make its way to the United States and Europe soon!
