NE: Now that we have a first trailer for Dragon Quest VIII on 3DS, we’re able to see the new version in action. How does it stack up to the PlayStation 2 original? You’ll be able to get a look at how the two editions compare in the video below.
3ds seem to be more colorful and bright.
I want it!!
Not really. Any tv can replicate the colours that we are seeing on the 3DS version.
Both versions have pros and cons. 3DS version will have some sharper images in some spots and brighter colors, and PS2 will be better in other areas. I still want DQ 7&8 for 3DS in the U.S. I don't care if the graphics are slightly worse. I don't just stare at the screen...I'm playing a game.
Now THAT game is worth to get a HD remaster.
To me both seem to have the edge over the other on some aspects, but overall I think the graphics are fine on the 3DS and won't interfere with the game. Hopefully SE will be smart enough to bring it to NA (and everywhere in the world) as opposed to keeping it exclusive to Japan. Unless they hate money that is, considering the translation already exists, I would presume localization costs of the 3DS version of the game would be minimal.
*sigh* Wish we could get it on other systems.
I agree, i proper remastered version of it would be great.
Hey you, yeah you the one with the Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasies.... Deal with it :P All honesty I wish this had been put on consoles, this game deserves far more than a simple mobile port
I Want a PsVita/Ps4 HD remaster with cross-save and cross-play, it's too good a game to only be re-released on the 3DS. And i'm guessing FFX/X-2 HD did good businees on Sony consoles.
not as good, as 3ds business. They a business profits on their mind first and 3ds is where its at. look at Yokai game sales, it sold more than FFX/X-2 on vita and ps4 together, I wonder if you add ps3 sales would it still sell more, if it do, its amazing, just gotta give props to the little system that could
3DS can't even match a PS2 and yet sells at that ridiculously high price. Unreal.
uh yes it can. Resident Evil Revelation and Xenoblade Chronicles is proof.
To be fair, Xenoblade is only playable on the N3DS. The one with more processing power than the original 3DS.
>xenoblade ya no, that game looks likes crap on the 3DS rather play it on wii
Well I'm sure the port wasnt easy, just on resolution it'll never catch up to the PS2 alone
The 3DS version looks far more colorful and less jaggy than the ps2 version. Yet the textures seem non existent. The grass just looks like a green patch not actual grass. Not to mention why the 3ds of all places to put this on? PC, wiiu, ps4, xbox one would have been much better choices.
the 3ds was also missing shadows, depth of field, and the lighting from the original, fewer trees that are less detailed.
Should had been New 3DS game. (go ahead and disagree...)
Disagreed. I followed your instructions accordingly.
Shoulda been a ps3/ps4 HD remaster.
Geez... A cheap ass port from Square Enix, lets not utilize the hardware like with every game they put out on 3DS. -_-"
That's pretty good, but sure wish this was an HD Wii U game.
bah.... if you own the original on ps2 like I do, or can buy it for $10 ....then you can just use pcsx2 emulator and play in perfect 1080p @ 60 frames with major anti aliasing and zero jaggies
3ds version sounds fine with me
Picking this up for sure. I just hope it doesn't drag on like DQVII.
seems like character models are more vivid but backgrounds are more dull/less dynamic on 3ds & vice versa.. Then again, on a smaller screen, only someone looking for flaws will find them
