Dragon Fantasy Book I

In a recent Twitter conversation, Adam Rippon (creator of Dragon Fantasy Books I and II) said that rather than working on an HD remaster, he is working on a 3DS version of Dragon Fantasy Book I.

But while Adam is working on a 3DS version, he may not complete it right away. Later on in the conversation, he mentions he’s taking a break from game development (though he says for him, a 3DS port is something of a vacation). He does seem to be pretty far along in the process, as evidenced by these screenshots posted this morning.

That being said, I am excited. I like retro JRPGs, and hey, Steve liked it and its sequel, so I’ll buy it. Would anyone else buy a 3DS version?


About Guy Rainey

I’m Guy Rainey. I’m a hardcore Nintendo fan, a PC enthusiast, and a Sony sympathizer. Also an amateur/aspiring game creator. I love any game that puts story as the main focus of the game, so that means JRPGs are my favorite genre almost by default.

    This is actually quite interesting. However, how in the world did he get a nintendo license? Does he even have one as of now? I haven’t kept track with nintendo recently, but i know them and xbox are very tight on giving out developer licenses. Sony on the other hand is perfectly fine.
    Either way good for him!

      It’s actually much easier than you think. Nintendo has made amazing strides in that aspect versus previous policies. For a good interview about the topic go take a peak at Gamsutra: http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/189180/
