Description

FOR KING AND COUNTRY!

A vast and vibrant would is yours to explore in the latest installment of this legendary role-playing series.

A mysterious jester. A forbidden scepter. A fiendish curse. A once idyllic kingdom lies entangled in a web of enchanted vines, it's king and princess hideously transformed, it's castle and subjects frozen in time. Only one person has survived the horror unscathed: you!
Only you can save your king and country by lifting the shadow of the jester's curse... But it won't be easy. An epic tale of friendship, bravery, and adventure awaits you on the grassy fields, snow-capped mountains, and restless seas of Dragon Quest VIII!

* Experience Dragon Quest VIII's finely balanced gameplay -- easy to pickup, challenging to master.
* Marvel as the distinctive character designs of Akira Toriyama (creator of Dragon Ball®) are brought to life by an amazing cell-shading graphics engine!
* Immerse yourself in a compelling storyline with rewarding side quests and a wealth of customization options.
* Music by Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Koichi Sugiyama.
