Fresh from the re-release of Dragon Warrior I and II for Game Boy Color here in the U.S., Enix has just announced
a release date for the next game in the series. Dragon Quest III (known as Dragon Warrior III in the States) will be released in Japan on December 8- just one day before the WonderSwan Color launches in Japan... complete with Square's Final Fantasy for that system!
While it is still uncertain whether or not Dragon Quest III will be released in North America, fans of the series have plenty of reason to hope for its release here. Considered by many to be the best game in the series, Dragon Quest III was originally released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1991. Until the recent release of Dragon Quest VII, Dragon Quest III was the best selling game of the series in Japan.
