12.24.05 - 4:44 AM
Square Enix has revealed some new details regarding its PlayStation 2 title Dragon Quest Shounen Yangus to Fushigi no Dungeon. Dragon Quest series mastermind Yuuji Horii will serve as the project's general director, while Akira Toriyama and Kouichi Sugiyama will be in charge of character design and music, respectively. Just like Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (Dragon Quest VIII: Umi to Sora to Daichi to Norowareshi Himegimi), this new gaiden will rely on toon-shading, to create a world resembling the setting of an anime. Apparently the game's story will take place approximately 20 years before the events of Dragon Quest VIII. Outside dungeons, a map will be visible in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. First screenshots of the game also show a monster accompanying Yangus.
Dragon Quest Shounen Yangus to Fushigi no Dungeon will be available in Japan sometime in spring 2006.
