  1. This is a very big oof. The SNES versions were perfect! Why do this, it looks so messy! However, I still appreciate the fact that they're bringing more Dragon Quest to the outer world! Maybe we'll get that upcoming Monsters title too
  2. The demo is really fun so far! I like the style of the game and the characters are lively and interesting. I kind of wish that the time spent on the monster ship was a bit darker though. I get that the game isn't really deep or anything based on the dialogue and style but it feels a little weird to me, when the monsters are acting nice and stuff because they're supposed to hate the builders. I guess there was an execution in the opening cutscene to make up for that though.
  3. Nice, I love these type of battles! It reminds me of another battle I saw when watching a friend play Joker. He was at Tartarus (Dr. Snapped's dungeon) and reached the part with the Atlas boss fight. I can't remember what monsters he was using because it was many years ago but the battle was hard for him and he had only one monster left. Atlas was poisoned but still managed to kill the monster during his turn and the party was wiped out. But because Atlas ended his turn he took poison damage which killed him! Unfortunately it didn't count as defeating Atlas as none of the party was alive. Another battle I remember fondly is the Biting Batboon (SnowBat) boss fight in DQVII (3DS). This boss fight caught me by surprise as I wasn't expecting it nor was I prepared for it. Gradually the biting batboon managed to defeat my party members and I had given up so I just attacked with my last remaining party member and the Biting Batboon died! I think it was Ruff who killed him and got all the exp for himself!
  4. The slime knight mount is hilarious, I hope that we can ride King Slimes too (probably not)! Also shouldn't the second video say 16 bit instead of 8 bit? DQVII looks great anyway, funny how they swapped the moving stones with the rockbomb family.
  5. Wow this looks amazing! I never really wanted a Dragon Quest movie but now this trailer has made me change my mind. I would like to see Nimzo present in the movie and if he is I hope they will do something interesting with him rather than have him appear near the end with only a bit of referencing here and there. Also, I love his second form and seeing it animated in this style could be really well done.
  6. It's located on the most western part of the map within a grove of trees near the Seer's house. Here's a video showing you where it is on the map.
  7. Yes, just yes. I need more monsters games in my life. In case you didn't know, there is another monsters game in development for consoles, but it's only been announced in Japan as of now.
  8. I feel your pain, I had my games all lined up for summer, but now I have to buy Smash as well..
  9. I never thought that I'd see the day a Dragon Quest character would make it into Smash! Also I'm happy with that release date, gives me enough time to finish Builders 2 and a couple of other games!
  10. Completely spoiled Hope everyone seeing the trailer already played a previous version!
  11. I don't know about 'best' Dragon Quest game but my favourite DQ is DQMJ2. I remember the first time I saw the Wormonger, I thought that it was so cool. I've easily sunk 400hrs into that game alone. Never got a chance to play with the Wi-Fi however. Out of the mainline games, my favourite is XI because I just loved everything about it and I can't wait for the Switch version.
  12. Well, for Dragon Quest XI, you won't really know the intended level exactly, but I kind of got a feel for it. The levels of your party members are one indicator that shows you a suitable level to be at from my experience anyway. I wouldn't grind unless I could not finish a certain area or defeat a certain boss and, during my playthrough, in boss fights I would always manage to take them down. It wouldn't be a very easy fight but I only died once or twice in my playthrough so it's not like it was that challenging either. For me, that spot is the ideal place to be in terms of difficulty. A few boss fights towards the end of the second act almost killed me but I made it through. In my opinion, that was a good difficulty because you want to feel the challenge towards the end. But I would usually just say find your ideal difficulty and stick with it.
  13. I usually play Dragon Quest games slowly and as a result I'm usually the intended level or somewhere around there. The only Dragon Quest game that I played where I was underleveled was DQIII. That game was challenging enough on its own but when you're underleveled it's even more difficult. While being underleveled can be a hassle (Zoma) it's also quite fun to finally beat a boss that you've been having difficulty with because you feel like you've really achieved something. Overall, I enjoy being underleveled because the challenge is a nice change but I prefer to be around the intended level as I have the most fun that way. In a second playthrough I might go for being underleveled rather than a first.
  14. Oh man, the first Dragon Quest game I ever played was Joker for the DS way back in 2010(?). I heard of it from a friend who heard of it from a friend and then I just kept playing it and hogging the DS all the time until I beat Estark and on the same day that my friend did and we went up to each other and said at the same time that we beat Estark. Then I forgot about the series until I saw ads for Dragon Quest IX and then after that I got Joker 2. I didn't play much Dragon Quest (just monsters and I) until I found out about VII for the 3DS and have been playing a bunch of DQ games ever since.
  15. Hmm, if they're only starting development now, that would mean that Dragon Quest XII should be released in 2023 according to the developers. It seems really far away but I recall that the producer or director, I can't remember said that a Dragon Quest game's development takes the same amount of time from one Olympic games to the next, i.e. 4 years.
  16. One thing that I would also love to see return in the next monsters game would be legacy boss fights, like those in DQIX. There were some sort of legacy bosses in the first monsters game, I think, and I would like to see a system of legacy boss fights return. Probably as post post-game content or something like that. However I guess it's not very likely that all legacy boss fights will be included as it would be weird to see Erik and Mia fighting the final boss of DQXI before DQXI.. Likely scenario is that we get Estark and some other monsters.
  17. Wow, can we just appreciate how good this ad looks. The monsters are incredibly well done, especially the golem, rockbombs, and the knight errant! And Estark at the end was the cherry on top. As far as the game goes it looks quite interesting. From what we can see, there might not be any monster taming/scouting which would be a shame, as in my opinion, games like these thrive off of having more to collect. The graphical style is reminiscent of some 3DS titles like Joker 3 and XI and the combat seems simple enough. I also hope that it has a few things to make it different to Pokemon Go, as I only managed to play that game for a couple of weeks before becoming bored.
  18. I'm assuming that this will only be the case for a few days or weeks, right? Because it seems like a thing that Square Enix would want to fix quickly.
  19. Yeah, a 'new Dragon Quest experience'. This was also briefly mentioned in the Suprising Dragon Quest News in June thread by Plattym3. On the topic of Dragon Quest mobile games, Hoshi no Dragon Quest (Dragon Quest of the Stars) recently got this promotional music video, though I'm not sure why. The video is strangely unlisted too which is odd to me because if it's a promotional video shouldn't the producers want it to reach more people?
  20. Today, 33 years ago the first Dragon Quest was released! This series is still going on strong with 3 new Dragon Quest games being released later this year, Dragon Quest Monsters (with Mia and Erik), Dragon Quest Xi S, and a new mobile game (and DQBII for overseas).
  21. Better yet! Square Enix will go through the trouble of making it so that players outside of Japan can't even play the game, if we're lucky they'll also temporarily release an English version for some people in Asia (looking at you Super Light)! That aside, I'm actually interested to see what this 'new king of Dragon Quest experience' this is.
