Dragon Quest VIII

The North American release of Dragon Quest VIII for the 3DS is right around the corner, and Nintendo gave YouTube user Rurikhan an early look at the title.

Rurikhan’s video consists of about 12 minutes of gameplay from the North American release along with his comentary.

Dragon Quest VIII was first released for the PS2 in 2005 in North America, and was also released for Android and iOS in 2014. It was the first installment localized in North America to drop the “Dragon Warrior” title that had been used up to that point.

The 3DS version came out back in August of 2015 in Japan and will be out in North America January 20th.

    It was also the first main DQ game to be released in Europe. (April 2006. Bought it launch day. Really enjoyed it.)
    We did technically get the first “Dragon Warrior Monsters” game in 1999 (ironically, a year before North America), and then nothing until the PS2 version of this one. 🙁

    Luckily the Europe release for the 3DS version of DQ8 will be the same day as the NA release, though.
