In an interview with Nintendo Life, Dragon Quest VII producer Noriyoshi Fujimoto spoke about the decision to remake the game. On the decision to bring it to the handheld rather than Sony platforms, Fujimoto explained:

“There are two reasons. One is that Nintendo 3DS is a portable system and I thought it was a really good fit for DQVII. The second one is that, in Japan, Nintendo 3DS is the most popular hardware, so I thought it would be a really good opportunity to get DQVII to more fans.”

Fujimoto was also asked about Nintendo’s involvement. Regarding this, he said:

“The sheer translation volume of Dragon Quest VII is more than 2 times Dragon Quest V, so it’s a gigantic game. It was really hard to make the business decision to localize the game. With Nintendo, we were able to work it out and work hand-in-hand and make it happen together. To be completely blunt, it’s like Nintendo took half of the bill!”
