Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King
(Jan. 20 – 3DS)
Dragon Quest is a very different game from Kingdom Hearts III, but if you’re a fan of the original Final Fantasy VII, then you’re probably into old school JRPGs. That means that Dragon Quest VIII is potentially right up your alley.
Dragon Quest VIII is a JRPG that originally released on Sony’s PS2 way back in 2005. Don’t worry though, this isn’t just a direct port (although, that wouldn’t be such a bad thing). The 3DS version has updated visuals as well as a few other perks. Here’s some of what you can expect:
- Fully voiced adventure (including all of the side events).
- Jessica and Kukule are part of the adventure.
- New scenarios.
- No more random encounters. You can see and avoid enemies on the screen.
It’s going to be a fresher version of the classic and should be able to keep your attention for a long time.
