The 3DS port of Dragon Quest VIII comes with quite a few changes compared to the PS2 original, from the removal of random encounters to more scenes fleshing out the backstory of various characters.

Nintendo has released a couple of trailers for both of them, showcasing what they bring to battle. Check them out:

Dragon Quest VIII for 3DS launches in both North America and Europe on January 20th.
