With Dragon Quest VIII's recent 3DS release in Japan, YouTuber user "ninten2tv" has put together a side-by-side comparison of the intro for both games. The 3DS is brighter. Too bright? It definitely lacks some tertiary detail, but it looks alright. The only thing that bums me out is how much that gorgeous sky gets smudged smooth.
The 3DS does get a new ending, though.
