Your First Good Look At Dragon Quest VI On The DS

0 Here’s your first good look at Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie, the last game in the supposed "Zenithia trilogy." Unlike its predecessors, which were all developed by Chunsoft, the original DQVI was developed by Heartbeat — the studio that also worked on Dragon Quest VII for the PS1. The remake is, of course, being handled by ArtePiazza.


Heartbeat no longer exists but its original members went on to form Genius Sonority and develop Pokémon Colosseum, its sequel Gale of Darkness, Pokémon Battle Revolution and Dragon Quest Swords.


As we reported previously, Dragon Quest VI will be playable at Square Enix’s booth at TGS this week. The game features "Real" and "Dream" worlds, both of which the player must navigate through to reach the end.


For everyone that’s worried about a localized release, don’t be. It’s as good as confirmed.
