Dragon Quest VIII Mobile Footage Takes A Step Back

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey Of The Cursed King may have been released way back in 2004, but it still holds a special place in many peoples hearts as an excellent RPG with a unique charm. Much like the rest of the series it sold remarkable well in Japan but had limited success outside. With the recent announcement that Square Enix is releasing entire series until VIII on mobiles, hopefully the west will take this second chance to play these games on the go.

The footage for Dragon Quest VIII looks remarkable good for a mobile port, being very similar to the PS2 version. The camera is also zoomed out, revealing more of the world map. This far out point of view also extends to the battles, surprising given a mobiles limited screen space. The touch controls also seem rather intuitive and like they will work well with the game.

What do you think? Will you be getting Dragon Quest VIII if it comes to the west? Let us know in the comments.
