While at Jump Festa 2013 this weekend, I had the chance to check out the 3DS remake of Dragon Quest VII.
This is a remake of the seventh Dragon Quest game—which was originally released for the PlayStation back in 2000—seems to fit the console's format very naturally. The graphical upgrade is very pretty and allows for characters to be much more expressive. The controls are intuitive, and anything you don't pick up immediately, the game will show you how to do.
The initial plot is a little confusing at first and ends up with you running around talking to random people trying to find the one person or thing that will make the story progress. Sadly, I took so much time just trying to get out of the first village that I never got a chance to try out the combat at all.
