Yes, that's right. Dragon Quest VIII is coming to 3DS in Japan on August 27 of this year. This makes all Dragon Quest games in the main series being on a handheld device in one country and all. Lets hope it comes overseas.
EDIT - 13:12: There will be a new scenario and new party members (a Thief called Red and Morrie, from Monster Battle Road)
EDIT 2 - 13:13: The Thief is a female and it will support StreetPass. Voiceovers will be in it too.
