Square Enix has released the Dragon Quest VII 3D remake with the subtitle “Warriors of Eden” in Japan last week, when it sold 827,922 copies!

The meat of the game is of course that it can take 100’s of hours to complete!
No Western release announcement has been made, but the previous two games got English translations on DS, so fingers crossed.
