They're also doing a remake of Dragon Quest III with a visual style similar to Octopath Traveller, which imo looks much nicer with a brighter, more saturated palette.
I think DQ games are deliberately trying to keep to a JRPG tradition. The reason why they don't evolve much from game to game is a purposeful and stylistic choice to keep the series grounded in what makes DQ a DQ.It's cool they're making new DQ games, but I hope they get a bit more ambitious with gameplay, I don't mean abandoning turn based but rather add more interesting features and some dept. DQ11 was pretty shallow and there wasn't much to it, even with the addition of the levelling board.
It would be cool to get a Final Fantasy 6 Remake in this style. Because i never thought that 6 would work in a remake form the way FF7 would because of the sprite base of the original. However the Octopath style is really stunning, and I think it would make for a great platform engine for 5 and 6 to get remakes on.They're also doing a remake of Dragon Quest III with a visual style similar to Octopath Traveller, which imo looks much nicer with a brighter, more saturated palette.
Maybe not such a big deal out here in the West, but I bet for Japan it is. DQ3 was more or less for jrpgs in Japan what FFVII was for us.
The dentist actually
Like I said you can keep the turn based aspect, that's not a problem. I just got bored pretty quick of the combat because of how simplistic it was, use element enemy is weak to and keep your HP. You can always give it some depth and add an easy mode for people who don't want to bother with it.I think DQ games are deliberately trying to keep to a JRPG tradition.

This game is remade from the ground up, a la Shadow of the Colossus Remake. I am downloading this at midnight, June 1st ASAP.
Yes, it'll be free for a couple of months on, if you are subscribed to PS+.Did you mention before it’s also a freebie for PS+? I’ve never really played more than a demo of one of the earlier games (1 or 2 I think) so this would be perfect to really try it out.
Stop! Just stop! No one cares anymore aside from a few!
To sum up everything I can find online so far:
How is that a roadmap, it's just vague "we'll drop some update". I can understand company, most of the public moves on very quickly once a game is release and supporting it post launch is a high effort low reward game. I'd absolutely love for more game to be re-release a la FF14, so many game have the scafolding to be amazing but just need some polishes but ultimatly the polish need to be done by people and those people need to be paid. Releasing some sort of paid mega patch/DLC to fix the issue would anger people who already brough teh game and think all that should have been in from teh beginning, making it free won't really get many people who avoid the game buy it because the game isn't on their radar anymore. Personally I'd be fine with paying for the mega patch if it really was substantial, but I have a feeling that the negative publicity it would garner would far outweigh the profit. So this is probably why most game with potential are instead abandoned, you really only have one chance.To sum up everything I can find online so far:
It really pains me to see the game in a such state. It has so much potential to be the next GTA, but if everyone moves away from the game, I am sure CDPR will stop caring as well. I really wish the game industry would stop with this roadmap bullshit, because I rarely see them followed or the content that is promised ends up mediocre. I don't see these free dlcs being anything significant; probably some weapon re-skins, in-game shrits, and some extra side-quests. Unlike Witcher 3's HOS and BAW, I don't think there would be any expansions. Would be cool to see other parts of the world, though.
- CDPR lost 64% in the net profit to cover the bug fixes and patches
- The roadmap looks more or less the same according to this Reddit post
- the other half of the team is working on smaller unannounced projects
