Nintendo and Square Enix have announced that Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past will be released for the 3DS on September 16. Fragments of the Forgotten Past is actually a remake of Dragon Warrior VII, which was the last game to carry the “Dragon Warrior” name when it was released in North America in 2001.
Developer by Artepiazza, the portable version of the game will include polygonal graphics for the first time and a completely revamped script. But the expansive job system (players can take on more than 30 different vocations) and the classic turn-based battles will remain unchanged.
The Nintendo Treehouse team sat down with developers from Artepiazza and Square Enix at this year’s E3 Expo. You can catch their chat, along with nearly 30 minutes of live gameplay, after the break.
