The localization of Dragon Quest VII for the 3DS released just days ago, and fans of the series have another 3DS localization to look forward to when Dragon Quest VIII releases sometime next year. [Thanks, NeoGAF.]
During a panel at PAX West for Dragon Quest VII, Nintendo also revealed a little footage of the localization of VIII. Based on the footage, it was determined that the 3DS localization will feature English voice acting. Sadly, however, the game will not have orchestrated music.
Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King will release for the Nintendo 3DS sometime in 2017 in North America and Europe.
