Hey guys, Nick here bringing you more fun game reviews from Japan. Today's review is from Square Enix's popular franchise Dragon Quest, called 星のドラゴンクエスト, or roughly translated to Star Dragon Quest, from the Japanese Apple Japan iTunes App Store. This mobile version of the JRPG is super fun and I think you guys will really enjoy my preview. Let's check it out!
When you start the game you are given some very memorable characters to play, for those of you who are familiar with the prior Dragon Quest titles. As time passes in the game, you are eventually able to fully-customize each character, from battle-style to costume. The game takes place on a fully-rendered 3D world, which inhabits tons of vile and cute creatures which you fight in a turn-based style with your party configuration.
As you continue to progress the story you begin to gain more and more different characters you can use in your party. My favorite feature of the game was the full-zooming world map that lets you pin-point where you would like to begin your next mission. It made it really fun and convenient for me. What do you guys think? Does this seem like a Japanese title you would be wanting to try? Let me know in the comments section!
Above, I've linked a promotional video to give you a bit more of a look at the game, without giving all too much away. As mentioned, Star Dragon Quest, is available today exclusively on the Japanese Apple Japan iTunes App Store. It is free to download and play, so enjoy!
