I would love it if you guys do the same thing for Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy V, and Final Fantasy VI. I would love to see a remastered version of these three games based on the Game Boy Advance version and bundled in a collection.
I would love to get these games normally, but I'm not really feeling the updates to the Super Famicom sprites. Both the overworld sprites and the enemy portraits seem like a downgrade in my opinion.
I love DQ and have wanted these to be brought out in modernized form for several decades but why step away from the pixel art style for the enemies in battle? It really seems to lose the flavor of Akira Toriyamas designs. I'm an older gamer so I'm rather partial to the Super Famicom remakes of DQ 1,2 and 3. Love that pixel art!
Will North America be getting the physical copy as well, or just Asia?
