Dragon Quest VIII has decided to pack its bags and take another overseas journey. Square Enix today announced that they would be releasing the latest installment of the Dragon Quest series in Europe this April. The game was released in Japan during November 2004, and recently in North America during November 2005.
Dragon Quest: Journey of the Cursed King will see a few makeovers before its European release. Gamers there will see a revamped game menu, voice-overs with a brand new British cast, improved game animations, new battle skills, and a completely orchestrated soundtrack.
"We are delighted to be bringing such a prestigious title to Europe," commented CEO and President John Yamamoto. "The launch of Dragon Quest: The Journey of the Cursed King marks a milestone for Square Enix as a leading European publisher, and will create a benchmark in gaming. There is high anticipation for Dragon Quest and this title will not disappoint."
