Nintendo Treehouse Live E3 2016: Day 2 — Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Ludwig loves slimes.

I know a lot of people have been waiting for Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past to come to America. SOON.

Apparently, according to the log, Square Enix listened to the fans to localise the game. So... online petitions apparently work?

I'm Nintendork 13 13, Rawk is him, breezinabout is Vortexica. 

RawkHawk2010 4:47 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 4:47 pm
    "Square Onix"

 RawkHawk2010 4:47 pm
    I always used to think it was Square Onix
    So I relate to that.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:47 pm
    B-But it's not.
    They got the executive producer of the Dragon Quest series here.
    Rainbow ribbons return.
    Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past.

 RawkHawk2010 4:48 pm
    akira toriyama 4:48 pm
    Ah, this is a port.
    I was gonna say.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:49 pm
    It's not a port.

 RawkHawk2010 4:49 pm
    It is? >.>

 Nintendork 13 13 4:49 pm
    This game is from 2001. 4:49 pm
    I could've sworn there was a Dragon Quest VIII.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:49 pm
    2001 games don't look like this.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:49 pm
    There is.
    But this is VII. 4:49 pm
    Well, remake then.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:49 pm
    Enhanced graphics and improved gameplay.

 RawkHawk2010 4:49 pm
    someone in this Blast was obsessed with that file select music.
    Probably RNK.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:50 pm vague.

 RawkHawk2010 4:50 pm
    more wolves

 Nintendork 13 13 4:51 pm
    Another 30-year anniversary.

 RawkHawk2010 4:51 pm
    Now let's go see the King I hear he built us a bridge.
    We can go to the town where all the pirates live.
    Muscle up some scallywags, and get us a boat,
    so we can sail the seas and punch fish in the throat.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:51 pm
    "The core members of the team have not changed in 30 years."
    Our core members have changed in the past 12!

 RawkHawk2010 4:51 pm
    The Japanese have more discipline.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:52 pm
    I think she'd say "squid" instead of "elderly adult".

 RawkHawk2010 4:52 pm
    Notice how Retro Studios can't even keep its dudes long enough to complete a single game.
    They all commit treason.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:52 pm
    Has anything happened so far besides them running?

Dragon Quest VII Fragments of the Forgotten Past 3DS walking abbey
They are actually now walking, though you wouldn't know it from a still image.

 RawkHawk2010 4:53 pm
    It's already been five minutes since we started this log.
    That's four Ninja Gaiden songs way too long.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:54 pm
    That dude has a nice beard.
    "If you forget where you were, and check what you were playing."
    Oh hey, that'd be useful for Rawk.
    Dude still hasn't finished Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright.

 RawkHawk2010 4:55 pm
    Also had to start a new file on TP cuz I fell off a bridge and had no idea where to go when I came back months later.
    That's happened to people in Pokemon.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:56 pm
    ...You can't fall off the bridges.

 RawkHawk2010 4:56 pm
    When they go into Seafoam Islands without flash.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:56 pm

 RawkHawk2010 4:56 pm
    The bridge collapsed.
    You mean in Poke,

 Nintendork 13 13 4:56 pm

 RawkHawk2010 4:56 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 4:56 pm
    Toriyama namedropped.

 RawkHawk2010 4:57 pm
    That reminds me.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:57 pm
    As was Chrono Trigger.

 RawkHawk2010 4:57 pm
    The new arc of Dragon Ball Super started and I haven't even watched it!
    Black Goku debuts!

 Nintendork 13 13 4:58 pm
    They said "we think the main character is 17 years old"
    They've had 15 years to think about that and still dunno?
    There's a Slime in the back.
    And a Slime is used for the hourglass loading.

 RawkHawk2010 4:59 pm
    Uh oh, carpets.
    Not a fan.

 Nintendork 13 13 4:59 pm
    Are they talking about tsundere?
    They said they invented the term.
    For this game.

 RawkHawk2010 5:00 pm
    She just used the black pronunciation of "strength".

 RawkHawk2010 5:00 pm
    aka "stringth"

 Nintendork 13 13 5:00 pm
    "One of the things I'm going to show off right now is..."
    He hasn't done anything all game.

The Homely King Slime.

 RawkHawk2010 5:01 pm
    "All Trade Zabby"?

 Nintendork 13 13 5:01 pm

 RawkHawk2010 5:01 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 5:01 pm
    Metal Slime! 5:02 pm
    Finally, some combat.

Metal Slime Knight!
And Mastermine. It's clever. I guess.

 RawkHawk2010 5:02 pm
    Menus aren't very pretty.
    you know

 Nintendork 13 13 5:03 pm

 RawkHawk2010 5:03 pm
    I forgot the 3DS even had 3D functionality.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:03 pm

 RawkHawk2010 5:03 pm
    No one talks about it.
    And I'm not even sure if Pocket Card Jockey supports it.
    Does it?

 Nintendork 13 13 5:03 pm
    RIP Metal Slime Knight
    It doesn't.

 RawkHawk2010 5:03 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 5:04 pm
    Total of 457 monsters.

Both screens during a battle.

 RawkHawk2010 5:04 pm
    "What does a slime taste like?"

 Nintendork 13 13 5:04 pm
    RIP King Slime

 RawkHawk2010 5:05 pm
    ...They didn't answer the question.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:05 pm
    I think they said it's for ointment, not consumption.
    (King Slime reminds me of Jessie Go)

 RawkHawk2010 5:07 pm
    What did Bowser say in the Mario Ice Capades.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:07 pm
    I.............have no idea.
    "The enemy are defeated."
    "The party obtain 178 gold coins."
    But yeah the game hasn't been released in the USA before.
    That's why it's a big deal.

 RawkHawk2010 5:08 pm
    found it

 Nintendork 13 13 5:08 pm
    "We didn't have any plans to release Dragon Quest VII in the States at all because it's such a vast game."

 Nintendork 13 13 5:09 pm
    "We figured that to localise this title it'd be too much work."

 RawkHawk2010 5:09 pm
    "One little bug in the cold cream jar."

 Nintendork 13 13 5:10 pm
    "But then there were a lot of core fans in France who wrote a lot of letters to me or Nintendo or anyone and requested that Dragon Quest VII be localised. There was even an online petition."
    Treehouse: Oh my gosh, that's amazing.
    Do they not realise there are online petitions for EVERYTHING?
    "It was the power of fans that got this game localised. We really want to thank the fans, because if it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have this project here."

 Nintendork 13 13 5:11 pm
    I hope Nintendo and CAPCOM are listening.'
    This slime is so big he's off the screen.
    Adorable. <3 5:12 pm
    Not wanting to localise a game because it's "too much work" isn't the most reassuring attitude to have. <_<

 Nintendork 13 13 5:13 pm

Dragon Quest VII Fragments of the Forgotten Past 3DS

 RawkHawk2010 5:13 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 5:13 pm
    NO I DON'T
    Each enemy has its own sleep animation.
    (...Well, it'd be weird for characters to share sleep animations if they're not the same dude.)
    They put in modern elements.
    All my screenshots are just slimes.
    Stream time over.

 RawkHawk2010 5:15 pm
    That was bad.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:15 pm
    That SMT x FE thing is next.
    I liked it when the slimes showed up.
    The first 15 minutes of just walking/running was dumb.
    "We will see you. Tokyo Mirage Sessions Sharp FE next."

 RawkHawk2010 5:16 pm
    That was so bad I started watching Mario On Ice to kill time.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:16 pm
    She had trouble with the name.

 RawkHawk2010 5:16 pm
    That said,
    I'm actually kind of curious to see Tokyo.

 Nintendork 13 13 5:17 pm

 RawkHawk2010 5:17 pm

 RawkHawk2010 5:17 pm
    ^ Chrom right now

 Nintendork 13 13 5:17 pm
    Don't leave our readers with that imagery.

Chrom, the character, not the person, will be in the next log. There's three pictures of him. Stay tuned.

The previous log were other third-party 3DS games from Japan.
Here's that Chrom thing, erm, Tokyo Mirage Sessions.
