Default Dragon Quest 8, January 20th 2017 in Europe.

Time to get crackin on DQ7 and DQ 8 is hot on it's heals for a January 20th release in Europe. No word on an NA date yet.

Quick save, speed up battles, picture mode, two new playable characters, added story and an alternative ending are new for this release.

The Dragon Quest 8 3DS remake comes out on 20th January 2017 in Europe, Nintendo has announced.

The handheld version of the PS2 classic includes two new playable characters, more side quests and the ability to host monsters on the go.

There's full voice-acting in all plot-important cut-scenes, Nintendo said, as well as new story content designed to provide more backstory about The Hero and the game's villain, Dhoulmagus. There's a new alternative ending, too.

Nintendo said some elements of the game have been streamlined. There's a quick save function, so there's no need to rush to a church to save. And there's a speed up feature for battles.

The new photo mode lets you take pictures outside of battles and cut-scenes. The Hero and his companions can perform special poses, and you can add stickers, filters and even put a frame around the image.

When you meet Cameron Obscura in Port Prospect you unlock Cameron's Codex, which rewards you for taking pictures of certain subjects, monsters and situations. You can then save these images to the SD card and share them via StreetPass.

America is the same day.

Nintendo of America confirmed that the game will be arriving on the very same date so fortunately no one has been left out.

Sweet! This is the game that got me back into Dragon Quest again. I have it pre-ordered from Amazon, and I can't wait to get this version!

They changed a few outfits in the Japanese release to keep the original rating of the game. Sounds like the rating system has changed a bit there in Japan since the games original release.

Haven't heard of changes to the US version though. Japanese version has been out over a year.
