Dragon Quest VII | oprainfall

During Nintendo Treehouse Live at E3 2016, the company showed off some live gameplay for the Nintendo 3DS version of Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past. The gameplay demo showed off world map and town exploration, some of the translated dialogue, as well as a dungeon and several battles. Some gameplay is also shown off in a new trailer, released today by Nintendo:

The E3 gameplay demonstration capped off with a fight against a powerful King Slime, after going through several regular random encounters and conversations in the dungeon and on the world map.

Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past is scheduled for release on Nintendo 3DS on September 16, 2016 in North America.
