Dragon Quest VII Is Being Remade For The Nintendo 3DS

              Dragon Quest is a series that has always stayed strong, unlike a couple of fantasy games that never seem to come to a final. With nothing but amazing entries in the series, Dragon Quest is definitely a name to be reckoned with. The quality of the games has always maintained a high standard thanks in part to creator Yuji Horii-san. His input has always made the difference between good and great.
     Dragon Quest VII: Warrior of Eden was initially released for the original PlayStation way back in 2000.        
     It was released a year later in the US under the name of Dragon Warrior VII in order to maintain consistency and to avoid trademark infringements. To this day, a European version has yet to be seen.
     Developer ArtePiaza, under the Square-Enix brand, is now working on a remake that will take full advantage of the Nintendo 3DS. Polygonal graphics are now being employed to better suit the platform. A close inspection reveals that the game might in fact be using the same engine that powers Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry's Wonderland 3D. A key future to this version, and something that will most likely make audiophiles all over the world rejoice, is that the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra is responsible for the arrangements found through-out the game.
     Dragon Quest VII 3DS will be released in Japan on February 7th of next year. An international has not been announced.
