Square Enix Japan announced on their Dragon Quest website that yes, they will be remakingDragon Quest VII for the 3DS. Since Dragon Quest VI was recently remade for the DS just last year, it should come as no surprise that DQVII would also be remade, but we’re thrilled to hear it nonetheless.
The remake will allow players to exchange “lithographs” with one another via Street Pass, not unlike the sharing of dreams with the DS remake of Dragon Quest VI. So far, the game has only been announced for Japan with a February 7, 2013 release date. Hopefully it will come to North America as well. Stay tuned.
DQVII was originally released on the PlayStation in 2000 in Japan and 2001 in North America.
