Dragon Quest VIII

Recently at a PAX panel, Nintendo showed off some localized footage of Dragon Quest VIII for the 3DS. The footage showed that just like the original PlayStation 2 release the game will contain English voice acting.  However, just like the recently released Dragon Quest VII remake, the 3DS port of Dragon Quest VIII will seemingly not contain orchestrated music.

I’m a bit torn as I really loved the orchestrated music in the original release, but I do enjoy MIDI music as well. How do you feel? Let us know in the comments below!
