The upcoming 3DS games for this year and beyond

It's not just Dragon Quest 7 that's making it to Nintendo's handheld, but Dragon Quest 8: Journey of the cursed King too. This was one of the all time great RPGs back on PS2 and follows the story of a silent hero helping a King who has been turned into a troll and his daughter who has been turned in a horse by a wicked mage who has cursed his kingdom.

Oh Dragon Quest 7, and 8? Looks like I'll be picking those up.

MoveTheGlow3079d ago

Be careful! The iOS port they did for 8 didn't include anything added for the original localization - neither the voice acting nor the orchestral soundtrack. I guess it had to do with storage space, but the 3DS doesn't have an infinite amount of room for dialogue either.

3DS version has new playable characters, new endings, photo mode, streetpass and more new features.

Dragon Quest 7&8 are NOT the ios versions.

Many improvements including being able to see enemies so NO random encounter + 2 new characters in DQ8.

Can't wait for both of these as I've never played either before.

Also can't wait for Fire Emblem fates and Monster Hunter Stories looks good as well.

* Also Dragon Quest 11 looks amazing.

Darn....dragon quest 8 is still on my to play list for 10 years. It's been 10 years already??? I'm super backlogged!

Nintendo 3DS shaping up to be the best handheld ever.

I say by the time it's discontinued I should have about 80-100 Games.

Probably over half will be Third Parties.

Since as of now I have 37 in my wishlist and only 6 over them are Nintendo IP. Including upcoming games.

Wait, no new PS1, PS2 or PSP additions?

CrimsonWing69645d ago

It’s frustrating how they barely update that library. I get that Jimbo hates old games, but c’mon, the classic catalogue with trophies was a big draw for me. Was really hoping to get some heavy duty classic PS1 games to platinum. Looks like they’ll do exactly what they did on PS4 with the PS2 library…

LucasRuinedChildhood645d ago (Edited 644d ago )

Games like Resistance: Retribution have already been rated as well so they have some stuff ready.

I think they still don't have a healthy supply of classic games for the next few months and they have to really spread them out ... so because of all those Yakuza remasters on Premium this month ... they made the decision to hold off putting up more PSP or PS1 games until next month. :(

They need clearer communication on this. They could have said that we can look forward to some PSP games next month or something.

FinalFantasyFanatic644d ago

I'm so glad I stuck with the essential tier, I'd be ticked paying more with the expectation that the classic catalogue would be regularly updated and built up. The classic catalogue was the biggest draw of the upper tiers for me, so not seeing any new PS1 games is pretty disappointing.

While the VC remake is a turd, this is an impressive month.

SlothLordPootus645d ago

Has vice city been fixed? If not it feels like a weird addition. Lots for Dragon Quests fans.

jeromeface644d ago

fixed? Its kinda hard to fix something that was a mobile port to begin with... so no

cluclap644d ago

It wasn't a mobile port though? The team that made them did the mobile games but if I remember the actual remakes aren't the mobile versions.

andy85644d ago

Playing it at the moment. It actually looks pretty clean. I'm on PS5 though, can't comment for other versions. I guess the updates helped a bit

VersusDMC645d ago

If you like assassins creed and Dragon Quest enjoy the multiple games.

Just plan on playing Medium and the Yakuza remasters right now.

EvertonFC644d ago

"inside" indie game looks interesting for sure too

SlothLordPootus644d ago

Inside is great. If youve played limbo it's very similar

dazzysima645d ago

Seems the PS Plus offer is running out of steam already.

Have they even added any new trials since launch?
