UPDATE 2: This wasn’t just for North American audiences. Both games were announced for European audiences as well, both carrying the same names as the North American versions. This will mark the first time that European gamers will be able to play Dragon Quest VII as they missed out on Dragon Warrior VII for the original PlayStation console. Both games are expected in 2016 for the region.

Finally, after years of waiting and begging, Western fans of Dragon Quest got a surprise announcement during the Nintendo Direct today. It was revealed that both Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past, and Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS in 2016.
Both games were originally released in North America on the PlayStation and PlayStation 2, respectively, but the remakes have been highly anticipated by fans.
Along with Fire Emblem Fates and Bravely Second, the RPG lineup on the 3DS is looking pretty strong for next year.
