I don’t think this has been touched on before even though it was mentioned (in Japanese) in the scans. ArtePiazza is handling the DS remakes! Don’t recognize the name? I’m not surprised because most of their projects remain in Japan. The only recent game to come out of their studio in North America is Innocent Life: A Futuristic Harvest Moon. However, ArtePiazza has been handling Dragon Quest remakes since the days of the Super Famicom. They worked on the PsOne Dragon Quest IV remake and the stellar Dragon Quest V remake where the world was transitioned into 3D. The Nintendo DS remakes couldn’t be in more capable hands… well they could be, but Level 5 is busy on Dragon Quest IX… but hey ArtePiazza is great too and I’m glad to see they have they are the team behind the ambitious project.
