Recently the Producer of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, Noriyoshi Fujimoto spent some time with V-Jump to talk a little bit about the game and some of the aspects specific to the 3DS. Thanks to Siliconera, we have some of the details.

Here is some of the latest information:

– Dragon Quest VIII on 3DS will have visible encounters similar to those from Dragon Quest VII for the 3DS.

– Maps are very easy to navigate, locations are marked and you can simply touch on a location to get the name.

– Fields in the game won’t support stereoscopic 3D as it would have taken up double the memory and affected their ability to add the visible encounters as well as limited the distances you would be able to see in stereoscopic 3D.

– Dragon Quest VIII on the 3Ds also adds blue treasure chest that will respawn over time, and could contain items such as gold.

Check out the full conversation in the video below.
