Square-Enix Ships Dragon Quest VIII

Square Enix passed along a note today reminding us that DRAGON QUEST VIII: Journey of the Cursed King is now on sale, exclusively for the PlayStation 2.

The first PlayStation 2 title in the series, DRAGON QUEST VIII is the latest in the legendary franchise that has sold over 40 million units worldwide. You may remember the franchise under its former westernized title, "Dragon Warrior."

Updates for the North American release include voice-overs, a full-orchestral soundtrack, a completely renovated menu system, new battle abilities and improved animations. These new additions greatly enhance the gaming experience for the North American audience. A bonus disc will also be included with a playable demo of the North American version of FINAL FANTASY XII.

"We are extremely excited about DRAGON QUEST VIII's release in North America. Utilizing state of the art polygon technology, not only the map, but all of Akira Toriyama's characters are created in 3D. The player can freely run around in this wonderfully animated world as far as the eye can see," said Yuji Horii, Creator and Scenario and Game Designer for DRAGON QUEST. "While we've kept true to what made the series so popular, we've also added several elements for the North American audience and cannot wait for gamers to experience DRAGON QUEST!"
