All Articles: Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King
Nintendo and Square Enix have announced that Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King will released for the 3DS on January 20, 2017. The epic RPG was originally released for the PS2 back in 2005, but the handheld re-release will add two new playable characters, more side quests, new story content, and a new alternative ending:
The story begins when a jester, Dhoulmagus, comes to Castle Trodain and steals the King’s sceptre. He then uses its power to turn his majesty into a troll, the Princess into a horse and the castle inhabitants into plants. The only one left unscathed from this attack is a castle guard who escaped the curse and must now step up to save the kingdom he’s sworn to protect. Only by traveling the lands, recruiting allies and following the trail of destruction that Dhoulmagus leaves in his wake will The Hero be able to retrieve the sceptre in order to restore Trodain back to its former glory.
For players who do most of their 3DS gaming on the go, this new version of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King will also add a Quick Save function and a Speed Up mode for battles.
To go along with the release date news, Nintendo and Square Enix also released a new trailer for the game, and it’s been embedded above.
Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past will be available for the 3DS in exactly two weeks, but did you know that Nintendo and Square Enix are also toiling away at a brand new version of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King for the handheld?
Unfortunately, a short blurb during yesterday’s Nintendo Direct presentation confirmed the RPG re-release won’t make its 3DS debut until sometime in 2017.
Previously expected to be available in North America before the end of the year, no reason was given for the delay, but the 3DS version of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King was described by a Nintendo Direct host as “more feature-rich than ever.”
The Spring and Summer months are currently less dense with new releases than the first three months of the year, but that should change fairly soon, especially since publishers have staked a claim to every week from the beginning of April to the end of June with at least one big new release dropping every seven days.
Are you ready? Because here… we… go… (more…)
Dragon Quest fans can finally celebrate… Nintendo has announced that 3DS remakes of Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past and Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King will be released in North America in 2016.
Originally released on the PSone (as Dragon Warrior VII) in 2001, Dragon Quest VII was remade for the 3DS in 2013 for a Japanese audience and is finally making its way to North America after three long years of non-committal responses from Square Enix. Dragon Quest VIII won’t be taking such a circuitous route as it was originally released for the PS2 in 2005 and made its 3DS debut in Japan last year.
Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past is expected to be released in North America next Summer. Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King will follow not too far behind, but it currently has a “TBA 2016” launch date.
