    I'm very excited for the DS remake of Dragon Quest VI. It's the only entry in the main series (besides the newly released 9) which has never been released in the US. It was originally on SNES, and now being remade on DS using the Dragon Quest 4 and 5 DS engine. As such, it looks very attractive and seems to be an excellent remake of an already beautiful 2D game. It's also one of the more under-appreciated entries in the Dragon Quest series.

    Anyways, they showed a trailer at Tokyo Game Show this year. Someone recorded the footage with their camera, so excuse the poor quality. Here's some footage from the trailer-



    Also, for your pleasure and for the fun of it, someone put together a sprite comparison of the SNES-to-DS changes the characters have gone through, as well as an environment comparison-

    I'm pleased with this. No release date as of yet, but I suppose it will come soon enough. Perhaps it will be out in Japan by year's end and sometime next year in the US. US deserves it most, the only way to play the game in English is by using a fan translation for the SNES game.

    Game looks amazing, as expected from a DQ game.

    Lol @ the "No Pictures" sign under the screen. Guess they didn't mention anything about videos right? [​IMG]

    Saying it's "nice" would be understating it..

    EDIT: ..and beautiful!

    Looks amazing from what's shown in the video. Let's hope they add some nice extras in the game.
