Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King Releases on Jan. 20

With the new year comes new quests and great adventures, and 2017 will be no different when the DRAGON QUEST VIII: Journey of the Cursed King game comes to the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Jan. 20.

The story begins when a jester, Dhoulmagus, comes to Castle Trodain and steals the King’s sceptre. He then uses its power to turn his majesty into a troll, the Princess into a horse and the castle inhabitants into plants. The only one left unscathed from this attack is a castle guard who escaped the curse and must now step up to save the kingdom he’s sworn to protect. Only by traveling the lands, recruiting allies and following the trail of destruction that Dhoulmagus leaves in his wake will The Hero be able to retrieve the sceptre in order to restore Trodain back to its former glory.

Check out the Trailer:

“Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King has been streamlined for the Nintendo 3DS. The new Quick-Save function allows players to save and exit the game at any time. And the “Speed Up” feature allows for quick battles.

Players will also be able to pause the game at any time (outside of battles and cutscenes) and take photos using the 3DS of their heroes. You can pose your heroes and use different stickers and filters. This isn’t just some small feature, taking photos can help you on your journey once your player meets Cameron Obscura in Port Prospect. Players will unlock Cameron’s Codex, where they’ll be rewarded for taking pictures of certain subjects, monsters and situations.”
