For some time now ドラゴンクエストモンスターズスーパーライト, or, Dragon Quest Monsters Super Light has been available on the iTunes Japan Store. However, because I recently discovered this Square Enix franchise of games for myself, I figured I would share my first impressions of the game with you, today.
It's typical in the sense of JRPGs, where you turn-base attack and yet I still found it to be very exciting and cute. You move around dungeons, in which you are guided with a beginners tutorial, so do not fret! Even though the game is filled with Japanese dialogue I know many of you JRPG fans and Dragon Quest fans will not have a problem getting to the game play.
As seen above, swiping gestures quickly move you to and from different areas of the dungeons. When you see a pot or a chest you simply click it and the rewards are filtered into your inventory. I like how this is a very simple game for touchscreen that doesn't really involve user interface controls that can sometimes obstruct the beauty of a game. For the true Dragon Quest lovers, you will see that all of the famous monsters and characters are still very much apart of this game. Check out the video below for yourself to see!
Dragon Quest Monsters Super Light is available free to download on the Japan iTunes Store. Do not forget, in order to have access to Japanese games and apps you need access to the Japanese store by means of a Japanese credit card or an Japan iTunes Gift Card (more info, here).
