In North America and Europe!
11.04.16 - 9:47 AM

It's been a good year for Dragon Quest fans, and the support Square Enix is showing for the series will continue with the 3DS remake of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, which now has a set release date. The game will be available in both North America and Europe on January 20th, 2017, bringing with it a host of new features to the classic title, including two new party members, the option to speed up combat animations, and the ability to take in-game pictures and save them to the 3DS's SD card. You can check out an official synopsis and new trailer below.


With the new year comes new quests and great adventures, and 2017 will be no different when the DRAGON QUEST VIII: Journey of the Cursed King game comes to the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Jan. 20. This handheld retelling of the classic RPG will be back and bigger than ever, with two new playable characters, more side quests and the ability to battle monsters on the go.

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.
