Dragon Quest VIII 3DS Releases August in Japan – First Print Copies Come with Sword from First Game

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King is a favourite for many, so news that Dragon Quest VIII 3DS is an actual thing has caused quite a lot of excitement. The PlayStation 2 game was rereleased recently on Android and iOS, in late 2013 in Japan, and early 2014 Worldwide. Dragon Quest VIII 3DS will be landing in Japan as soon as August 27th. A Western release is still unconfirmed, but seems like it will be happening.

 

For a lot of people the first and only Dragon Quest on PlayStation 2 managed to truly match the vibrancy and colour of Akira Toriyama’s trademark art design.
