    I've heard that Dragon Quest VII and VIII will be released for the NA 3ds's but the thing is it only shows VII coming out sometime in 2016. If anybody knows about DQ games is that they never get released outside japan as we expect sometimes. Seeing Dragon Quest VII on 3ds will be cool but VIII was one of my fav ps2 games that I've actually beaten from beginning to end at 140+ hours. I've also heard that DQ 8 in japan isn't in 3d.... what the heck??? Plus another thing that annoyed me is the lack of n3ds exclusives. so far we've only gotten Xenoblade cronicles 3d and a few SNES titles. like I don't mind that but the lack of n3ds exclusives makes the n3ds not worth purchasing besides the improvement on 3d.. Just my two cents anybody can agree or disagree

    Gambia, The
    i was certain the assured 8 would come over too.

    also, binding of isaac is also exclusive. but you really shouldn't expect a whole lot of those n3ds only games. despite the good salenumbers, everyone would shoot themselves in the foot by making a game not also compatible to o3ds. thats why no one does.

    Frankly, I'm glad there aren't more exclusives for the New, stops me from having to buy one and start wading into the mess of trying to figure out how to get it CFW'd.

    DQ7 I've been anxiously waiting for for so long that I'm not sure I'll even believe it when (if?) it finally arrives. DQ8, meh, I like the game a lot, but I don't feel much of a need for a version of that beyond the PS2 one. Not saying it wouldn't also be good to get released, just it's not something I'm waiting for.

    I'm not particular with the n3ds exclusives, I still think Nintendo could have taken a look at hardware rendering over software rendering for the SNES games to work on the O3DS, but I guess they wanted enough accuracy so they didn't get complaints about visual errors from people who have never used emulators. The real selling point for me of the New 3DS was the clock speed, still but more because of how it works in CFW (and also I wanted to get a non-xl 3ds, not that nintendo makes it easy for the new line in America). It does improve some games pretty decently. It's a bad idea to split the userbase, still, but I think they have more to work with here than the DS Lite -> DSi jump.

    Not only 7 and 8, but we're supposed to get 11 this year too.

    I'll believe it when I see it though.

    Somewhere.
    I thought DQ stood for Dairy Queen at first...
    We need a Dairy Queen game. That magically teleports free ice cream with the power of sparkly unicorns.

    Running.
    I wish they would focus on making good sales choices.......considering that somebody can fanslate a game in about 1 month..........I would expect more games and more n3ds games.

    I sunk at least 1000 hours into dq9 trying to get all legacy bosses. When can I expect one for the 3ds D: I've been waiting since like 2010 for another good one
