I have three different versions of Dragon Quest III I still have yet to play: A mint, boxed copy of DW III on GBC I bought a few years ago, the Switch version which I picked up from an eShop sale last year and a fan translation of the Super Famicom port on my SNES classic. What are the pros and cons of each version? The Switch version looks really nice in the overworld and towns but I see the battle scenes are way too “clean” looking as if the enemies were just digitally pasted into the game from official asset promo art and their attacks also aren’t animated like they are on the Super Famicom version. It’s not a big deal and I’m sure I could get used to it but still kind of disappointing. The GBC version has collectibles like medals (for defeated monsters?), thanks for any advice on anything I might be missing here.
So far I’ve played DQ 1 (SNES fan translation), V (DS version), VII (3DS), some of VIII on 3DS which I need to pick up again and am currently playing XI on Switch. Looking for another classic entry to enjoy in between playing XI.
