    About 72 million people worldwide? And there is already a 3ds version out in japan, so its not like they would have to put actual work into it.
    The 3DS version also supposedly is the best version of the game as it also includes a classic 2d graphics mode which alters the gameplay quite a bit. So you basically get 2 games in 1.

    there will be 3 games basically:

    - PS4 version
    - 3DS polygonal version (graphically just google footage of DQ7 and DQ8 3DS versions thats how it will look)
    - 3DS 8-bit sprite version

    ***there are rumors of the 8-bit sprite version getting released stand-alone on mobile.

    Content-wise it is all the same game the only difference will be the graphics though the 8-bit version supposedly will feature random encounters and the polygonal versions (ps4 and 3ds) feature on-screen enemies.

    Thats kind of a big difference.

    the 3ds version is still worth playing though because it has exclusive content where you can go and visit the timelines and worlds of past Dragon Quest games and do a quest in them and in each DQ past-world that you visit the game will change its graphics to that of the original version release of said DQ game.

    In the PS4 version (and I assume Steam version) this content is not present instead they made a theme-park type mini-game with shooting galleries and other crap.

    EDIT: OOOF HARD MODE!

    omg omg omg

    Strangely enough no mention of Switch. Also, was the 3Ds localization dropped?

    I secretly hoped they release both versions on PC. (Yeah, no such coolness in SquEni's book. But I get 3DS emulators are not far from playable?)

    Nintendo is probably seething. A 2019 release for the Switch and no localization for the 3DS version. Ouch.

    honestly though im just glad were getting one version of the game and probably the best version. no use crying over spilt milk

    the fact theyre adding a Hard Mode for the Western release is frankly AMAZING.

    To be fair that's how you do it. Keep in mind game will be what, over a year old when they release it for western audience? Adding new content is great incentive.

    Wait, no 3DS version? Fuck, was really looking forward to it. The PS4 version better have the option to skip animations then.
