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.

If a Dragon Quest II question ever comes up in a pub quiz, you’ve now got a slightly better chance of getting it right!

So here’re the details on Dragon Quest II for iOS/Android:

Platforms: iOS, Android (iPhone 4 and above/iPad/iPod touch 4th Gen and above/devices running AndroidOS version 2.3 or above)

Good job promoting the game, Dan! Its nice seeing a positive attitide towards my fav gaming franchise for a change :)There's only a bad thing about this release (and the previous mobile releases): its only in english. I really fell in love with the spanish translations and i'd love to see language options in the future through updating the apps. I bought them all day one , and i plan to do the same with the next four games. (As far as i know there are DQ1-8 announced for mobile in Japan. Hopefully Europe will see DQ7 for the first time soon, either mobile or 3ds is fine with me as far as we get it.) I'd love to see the 3ds games and DQ10 someday in -at least- english. [bw]damn[/bw], being a DQ fan is hard outside Japan.

http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb88/Chiseimaru/please.png I loved playing Dragon Warrior Monsters during my childhood years - much more so than the Pokémon games which I also owned. I do not own a 3DS yet (only DSi and older consoles) but would definitely buy one solely to play Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry's Wonderland 3D if it was released over here. Looking at the various petitions and many other sites online, I am sure there are plenty of other people who would do the same. Due to the 3DS region locking, we are unable to import the Japanese version of Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry's Wonderland 3D . The game itself exists in Japanese, there are countless fluent Japanese and English speakers who could translate the entire game’s text into good English for you. All that would remain would be for you to patch it into the game and release it as a digital download on the 3DS in our regions. There would be no logistics involving shipping cartridges around the world, or preparing a set number of cartridges vs anticipated sales – digital downloads make it all easy for you (look at Steam's success!) If you want to advertise the game a bit, just send a few posters to GAME stores or something... Please consider this... the hard bit (i.e. the remake) is already done.. don't let your fans/customers down - we have patiently waited more than two years already! http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb88/Chiseimaru/please.png

ok i apologize for my last coment it was insensitive because i realize that this may be the only way you can release the games at the moment and i understand that you want to release the games here so i decided to support you and buy them on android just a quick question though will any of these also be released on the Amazon App Store?, my friend loves the series too but he has a kindle fire and google play isn't compatible with it
FullbringIfrit
still waiting for these to be released on an actual gaming system or do we handheld and console gamers not matter to you any more? i mean i love you guys and your games but most want to play games especially RPGs on gaming systems with proper controls not on smart phones with horrible touch screen controls sorry guess i'm coming off as some kind of deranged idiot but how about a bit of love to the people who supported you all these years, console and handheld console gamers

Thank you for supporting our games :D and I hope you have a great week too! Also maybe it's time to fill in the gaps of the main Final Fantasy games if you haven't completed all of those.
Dan_Seto
Glad to hear you're enjoying the games :) Dragon Quest has always been a more traditional JRPG experience and that's what I love about it! That and the fact that it's so charming. Love the style

Wohoo! Now all that's left to play is Dragon Quest III and I'll be lucky enough to have played them all. (Only other series I've completed from first game to last is Zelda) I hope soon though I can double dip with Dragon Quest VII on the 3DS and my biggest dream would be to play with other Dragon Quest fans together on Dragon Quest X (Also love to see Ninty fans to experience how amazing and fun an MMO can truly be!) Thanks again to the company and hope you Dan and all the other people working at Square-Enix have a lovely week ahead!

YES! Really pleased about this - and many thanks for the heads up Dan :-) I remember being a little disappointed when SE spoke about their plans for a bigger focus on the mobile market, but if the end result means getting to play these great games that passed us by first time around, then I'm all for it! Got into DQ with DQVIII, and loved it. I finally got to play the original one when it released on the app store a few weeks ago, and had a blast - there was something really refreshing about it's simplicity and straightforwardness, and it was nice to see some of the foundations already in place for not just the DQ franchise but also the genre as a whole. In fact, it was quite cool seeing how little has changed since then - and how little it needed to. Really looking forward to spending some quality time with the sequel.

haha hint taken! I know what you mean, Dragon Quest VIII was my first and favourite so that one's quite special to me
Dan_Seto
Thanks for your support and glad you like the games :)
Cheesey_Bites
YES!!!! I mean, VII 3DS and X Wi U would be more exciting ofcourse *hint hint*, or 5 as that's my favorite of the series (they're all fantastic though) but 2 was my first Dragon Quest so this'll hold a special place in my heart.

I just recently discovered the Dragon Quest series with Dragon Quest VIII for Android and i already love it. Final Fantasy will always be my eternal favorite but certainly Dragon Quest comes next.So thank you Square Enix for bringing this series to Europe. I'll keep playing it and i particularly look forward to playing Dragon Quest VII and IX!
