    Square Enix has released the Dragon Quest VII 3D remake with the subtitle “Warriors of Eden” in Japan this week. The biggest change aside from the new 3D graphics, is the random encounters being replaced with visible enemy encounters. Oh and you can exchange art via StreetPass. 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.

    Here are the live-action Japanese Dragon Quest VII TV commercials* in one long-form clip.

    * The commercials are titled: “Town Square,” “The Mysterious Stone,” and “The Adventure Begins.” The cosplays you see are Prince Kiefer and Wolf boy Gabo, as they try to shake off the redhead dancer Aira.

      CK Here Everybody

      Thanks for making us what we are today. You have created a utopia of
      bonds and love in the darkness of the Sonic fan base, and we present one
      of Crush 40’s recent songs to you to listen to and thank you for

      You are not alone.
      We stand hand in hand. And we sing and shout together united for the
      future, not only of the Adventure series, but for Sonic as a whole to
      keep living on.

      This song is for each and every one of you. The
      power of our dreams, and the strength created from standing together is
      one unmatched by any page, any site, and any gathering in the world.

      We are the true utopia, and true sanctuary, for Sonic and the companies behind him.

      We hope someday they all come to us for opinions and decisions on the
      future titles, but whether that happens or not, SA3 is PROUD to exist
      for YOU.
      Song Of Hope by Crush 40
      Crush 40. The third track from the 2012 EP, Rise Again. Available on
      iTunes. Lyrics I can’t believe just what I see Even though you’re
      staring back at me …
      Yep, Sonic Adventure 3, could be the next Sonic Game this year XD
