Dragon Quest II goes mobile
What comes after the number one? The number two of course! So after the release of Dragon Quest I on mobile devices we now present to you Dragon Quest II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line on iOS and Android. If like me, you’ve never had the chance to play this classic JRPG (I was just over a year old when the original version of the game was released) then now is your chance! Or maybe I should say “our” chance.
Dragon Quest II is out now and costs just £2.99/€4.49 for the entire game so you don’t have to purchase any additional content.
Like the previous game before it, Dragon Quest II was created by the legendary trio of creative masters – Yuji Horii (series creator), Koichi Sugiyama (music composer) and Akira Toriyama (manga artist and creator of Dragon Ball). This legendary trio actually still work together on the Dragon Quest franchise to this day. They must be really good friends.
In Dragon Quest II, a century has passed since the events of the first Dragon Quest game, during which time the descendants of the hero of Alefgard have forged three new nations. The story focuses on the prince of Midenhall who is ordered to stop the evil wizard Hargon who destroys Moonbrooke Castle. On his adventure, he is joined by his two cousins; the prince of Cannock and the princess of Moonbrooke and together they journey to rid the world of the evil Hargon.
Dragon Quest II is the first game in the series to allow the player to control more than one character, each with their own characteristics. Not only this, but it’s also the first game in the series to feature multiple heroes and enemies in battle as well as introduce a sailing ship that can land anywhere, allowing the entire game world to be explored in an open-ended way.
The iOS and Android versions of Dragon Quest II are actually the first time Dragon Quest II has been released in the UK/Europe. When it was originally released in the US, it was called Dragon Warrior II and in Japan it was originally called Dragon Quest II: Akuryou no Kamigami which literally translates as Dragon Quest II: Gods of the Evil Spirits.
