Square Enix has revealed that the first three entries in the DRAGON QUEST franchise will be making their way exclusively to the Nintendo Switch later this month as digital-only releases.
Just announced by Square Enix, the publisher behind franchises such as DRAGON QUEST, FINAL FANTASY, and even NieR: Automata, has revealed that they will be bringing the first-three entries of the DRAGON QUEST series exclusively to the Nintendo Switch on September 27th, 2019.
The releases will see that fans can experience the Erdrick trilogy to its fullest enjoying DRAGON QUEST, DRAGON QUEST II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line, and DRAGON QUEST III: The Seeds of Salvation, which will cost $4.49, $6.49, and $12.49 respectively.
The series was first introduced in 1986 on the Nintendo Entertainment System, giving fans their first taste of a standard JRPG experience. Square Enix has confirmed that this newly re-released trilogy will mimic their retro gameplay elements, paying homage to when the series first released 33 years ago.
The iconic Erdrick trilogy begins in the acclaimed DRAGON QUEST where players begin their voyage as the “Hero,” a descendent of the valiant hero Erdrick in an epic journey through the historic realm of Alefgard. DRAGON QUEST II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line takes place a century later, where the young prince of Midenhall embarks on a journey to find the other two descendants of Erdrick in order to defeat the nefarious Hargon. The third and final title in the Erdrick trilogy, DRAGON QUEST III: The Seeds of Salvation, takes players through the land of Aliahan, where a young hero has been charged with an impossible task of slaying Baramos, the master of darkness.
All the upcoming releases have been rated T for Teen. You can find out more about the upcoming releases by visiting the official Nintendo pre-order page for Dragon Quest today.
