Here's 11 Combined Minutes of Dragon Quest VIII Footage
We're gearing up for E3 here at Modojo, and we know there's about to be a ton of new announcements coming our way regarding the hot and the handheld. But some things just can't wait for the show to begin, like this video showing off 11 minutes of gameplay from the upcoming 3DS port of Dragon Quest VIII.
Of course, it's all Japanese footage and the video is interspersed throughout the video above, but you'll get to see plenty of stuff you likely hadn't seen before -- on the 3DS, of course. The video is showing off features ahead of the Japanese release on August 27. Players will be able to enjoy two new playable characters with additional scenarios, full voiceovers, and a re-recorded soundtrack done by the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra.
Hopefully this close to release and E3 it'll be about time for a well-deserved Western announcement. Especially because it's a seminal RPG release that any fan should try out, even if they've already played it before. Take my word for it and snag it on iOS if you get a chance!
