Catch New Dragon Quest VIII 3DS Footage and New Characters
It's full speed ahead for Dragon Quest VIII for 3DS, as a whole new crop of videos featuring playable characters Morrie and Gerda appear. As if you didn't already want to play the game, now you've got two more reasons to savor its impending release date in Japan, which is August 27.
The footage also includes a special high-speed battle mode that lets you speed up battles by as much as 1.5x. If that sounds a little ridiculous, keep in mind how annoying the grind can be and remember that it might end being a boon to you in the future given that there's a whole lot of that going on near the beginning of the game, and well...for the most of it too.
Check out the footage above and get hyped! And let's hope Square Enix is listening, because there was no word of a localization at this year's E3, and that's a crying shame and a half, isn't it?
