Dragon Quest I is coming to western mobiles this September, rest of the series to follow shortly

Let's not bury the lead here: Dragon Quest I is headed to English-speaking territories, and the other Dragon Quest games will join it soon after. In an interview with Siliconera, the producer of the Dragon Quest mobile series Noriyoshi Fujimoto stated that; "We are going to be releasing (in order) from Dragon Quest I, starting sometime in September, and then we'll be releasing subsequent games like Dragon Quest II and Dragon Quest III every month, maybe every two months" "In terms of pricing, it’s still yet to be determined - but because these are classic games, the cost will probably be lower than Dragon Quest VIII and Dragon Quest IV" Fujimoto also went on to explain that these…

The best Square Enix JRPGs on the iOS App Store

We'll be the first to admit that Square Enix's JRPGs are a little on the pricey side when compared to other iOS games, but we'll also tell you that the entry price is tiny when you consider their quality and value for money. Still, we know that splashing out on a game you might not like is a daunting prospect, so we've gone ahead and made a video showing off the very best of Squeenix's JRPGs that have so far appeared on Apple hardware. If you're not up for the whole hour-long stream, you can click the name of the title you'd like to see more of below, and you'll be whizzed straight to the part of the video that we start playing. 1.

During an announcement of its Gamescom line-up, Square Enix dropped a massive bomb for fans of JRPGs - Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen will be released on mobiles and tablets in the West. It's a port of the Nintendo DS remake, and includes the additional and changed content from that version, such as the extra story chapter. We're also hearing that it features quick saves, and multiple combat speed options, which will be a blessing for adventurers on the go. If you're yet to play a Dragon Quest, then this could well be a great place to start. The plot follows multiple characters from very different walks of life, as their stories all begin to weave into one another's, and this ad…
