First uncovered as part of a leaked Japanese magazine scan, Square Enix has now opened a teaser site for the upcoming 3DS remake of Dragon Quest VII. Originally released on the PlayStation back in 2000, this new version will now be completely remade in 3D, feature a orchestrated soundtrack performed by the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, and offer Street Pass functionality.
The remake is being developed by ArtePiazza, the team behind the DQIV through DQVI remakes on DS. Yuji Horii is still overseeing the game design and scenario. Dragon Quest VII on 3DS will be released in Japan on Feb. 7, 2013. There is no word on an English release yet, and considering how long it has taken past Dragon Quest games to be localized, it will likely be a while before there is any news on the subject.
