Product Description

Uncover the story of the Cursed King as you save the world from a twisted magician in this genre-defining role-playing game. Across the vast world you'll wage turn-based battles against more than 250 monsters designed by famed artist Akira Toriyama. As you level up, upgrade your warriors' skills to learn mighty attacks. Untold possibilities await.
After setting off into the unknown, you'll find monsters roaming the field—these are no mere random encounters. There's a satisfying rhythm to traveling, fighting monsters, earning items, crafting something useful with them using an alchemy Pot, and returning to battle, stronger than ever. To some, it's pitch-perfect RPG gameplay, complete with additional content outside the main storyline. In the Monster Arena, you'll form and battle teams of monsters to climb the ranks. It's but one of many features that makes this RPG a classic among classics.

To cure a curse.

Dragon Quest VIII is my first Dragon Quest Game. Specifically for the 3DS. I only put in about over sixty hours into this game, and I can say it is fully worth it. It was bought pre owned for 35$, but the previous owner deleted their save so I got a chance to start fresh with it. I follow the assertion that if you buy a 60$ game, and it is only 4-5 hours worth of content then it wasn't a good buy. So the fact I got over soxty hours already then it is heavily worth it. I won't cover much if you want to give it a try. Just be ready for hours of fun fron this RPG

AMAZING remake!!!!
1 year ago
This game remake is one of the best ones I have ever played. This version is far better than the ps2 version. More to do and new equipment and accessories. Especially more alchemy. And the Memories Lane challenge was very addicting. I would HIGHLY recommend this to my friends or cousins who play video games too. And I ABSOLUTELY love the ending where you can now marry Jessica instead of Medea.

It's a remake of a ps2 game with not much in way of innovation that will hold up to how jrpgs are paced now. Still good to play tho. Get it if you can.
