It’s a great time to be a Dragon Quest fan like myself, especially if you haven’t played the 2005 classic, Dragon Quest VIII. Perhaps one of the best (if not the best) installment in the legendary series, DQVIII was an amazingly anticipated title upon its release in Japan. The game had everything — full 3D graphics, the original design team, and a modern touch on the classic gameplay. It was a treasure chest of gold for the fans.
And now it’s coming to 3DS, with a few new enhancements! The video above has V Jump editor, Mr. Saitobui, and DQVIII producer, Mr. Fujimoto, give us an extended look at the game in motion… but you might need to learn a bit of Japanese for the full effect! Players will enjoy on-screen enemies (no more random battles!), a world map on the bottom screen, new animations, new voice acting elements, and the soundtrack will be the gorgeously composed orchestrated North American version! Here’s hoping for a world-wide release!
