    One the last JRPG's that I loved. Would have preferred a new Rocket Slime but a new potential great game is always welcome.

    I don't normally like Dragon Quest games, but I enjoyed the last Joker game.
    Looks good.

    Awesomes! I really hope this is better than the other one! I like the other one, just some quarks that really needed to be worked out.

    I enjoyed the first game but only after cheating the XP gain to 4x with one of Narin's codes.
    I like to grind as much as the next RPG fanatic but there's grinding and then there's DQMJ.

    QFT, I cheated also because it was way too much grinding to my liking.
    A great game, very addicting, but I grew tired after the countless hours of grinding.

    I really liked the first one but I ended up cheating too with the 100% capture. That made the game much more fun.

    A lovely game, but too short, (story wise), and too easy.
    This is great news.

    Now, if only we could get a Monster Rancher game on the ds, (both DS games never made it out of Japan. And no-one wants to translate them either... [​IMG])

    Loved the first one,hopefully the exp in the early-mid game isn't as slow as the first one,also for the love of god they better fix the running speed in this game...I wonder if the wolf is in this one too?

    Eh. Joker was OK, but I never really enjoyed any past DW:M2. The first is still my favorite, tohugh, mostly because the second took away a few of the roguelike elements.

    Same artist. "Akira Toriyama"

    EDIT: Got beaten.

    At least this guy doesn't looks "Gohan"-esque.. like others...

    Both of them look almost the same despite having the same artist. If I use the same logic as you guys I would say "Oh yeah, Goku looks like him since both of them are drawn by Toriyama".

    *sigh* Another great RPG for the DS. Guess I'll just have to wait for the english release, again. :|

    Very surprising news. I'm definitely looking forward to this and hopefully SE brings this to the US too.
