I'll probably just pick it up  on the Japan App Store and watch a 3DS play through to figure the story out.

I know this thread is sepcifically about the mobile versions, but couldn't you just play the 3DS version?

Yeah, I’ve thought about it. However, I don’t own a 3DS. Sure, it’d be great to get one and IV-IX. Then I’d have to get a Japanese 3DS to play XI, right? I might do all of that in a few years. I just can’t justify the purchases atm. Having our first child has made me cut down on a lot of the extra spending! But maybe I’ll get 2 3DSs when he’s old enough. Haha

It’s extremely frustrating not seeing Final Fantasy 8 or Dragon Quest 7 along side their brethren on my iPhone and iPad lol. 

I ordered a 2DS XL on Friday (I got the Pikachu one because it looks awesome lol 😂) and it will be in on Tuesday, according to Amazon.  I’ve been 3DS-less for about a year now which is why I haven’t played it.  I gave my New 3DS XL to my step-stone last summer along with my Pokémon games (I kept DQ 7 and 8 and my Zelda games though lol) because his got stolen and he was upset about it. 

I had hoped that DQ 7 mobile would be a year or a year and a half after the 3DS release so I didn’t rush out and buy a replacement 3DS.  I’ve been replaying DQ 6 on my iPad and I said “Damnit I want to play the DQ 7 remake already.”  So I went to Amazon to look at 3DS models and saw the Pikachu 2DS XL and said “Okay I’m buying that one.”

I will probably get halfway through the 3DS version and SE will release the mobile version lol.

I've heard of pet rocks, but that's a different level.

I have III and II on there, I just never really have the time or memory to play them, plus I find the controls irritating and would rather just get the GBC versions. I will probably buy DQV and I possibly; I want to replay V and not delete my DS save files so that makes it convenient.

I have already beaten VIII on 3DS but I found VIII for android nearly unplayable. I already find mobile controls clunky  for 2D and my wrist feels like it will die after just 10 minutes of using a 3D game like DQVIII's controls on android; plus it has none of the 3DS content nor the presentation of the PS2 version.

I have all 7 western released DQ mobile games on my phone. I’ve beaten 1-3 and have been very slowly playing through 4. I don’t game on my phone unless I’m away from the house, but I’ve found it a little hard to put some time into DQ4 mobile since you can’t quick save everywhere like you can in DQ1-3 mobile. I don’t want the feature to make the game easier, I just want to be able to quick save anywhere in the event I can only spare a few minutes or quickly need to get off my phone.

Anyway, I thought DQ1-3 played fine with the mobile controls, but DQ4 did take a bit of getting used too. I still prefer the SNES version of DQ3, but I enjoyed the mobile version’s new English translation.
