    But will the Switch version switch between the old style sprites or the newer models depending on whether it's in console or handheld mode?

    The graphics always look great in DQ but then I'm always reminded about how much of a grindfest these games are just to go up one level. I wish they came with a zen mode or something.

    Fynn and I can tell you it doesn't take all that long just to go up one level. I only played V and VIII, but in neither it felt that long.

    Yeah, beat I to VII and played a bit of VIII in the past and they're really not that grindy. Of course, grindier than FF, but still not as demanding as other RPGs out there

    Depends on the version actually. Most of the remakes tone down the grind, but the originals were kind of guilty of it. If it wasn't XP that was in short demand then it was usually Gold. Either way, it always seemed like you were under-leveled or under-equipped.

    I am staring at my physical copy of Dragon Warrior VII right now, and I vividly remember clocking hours of gameplay and only just beating that fire element Easter Island statue boss.

    Exactly how I felt about VIII. You'd get strong enough for the boss only to repeat the grind for the next one. I remember grinding so hard and that one mole boss still taking a century to kill with hi tension on everybody.
