Square Enix has announced that the first three games in the beloved DRAGON QUEST RPG series are now available for Nintendo Switch, for the first time on console in Europe. The releases are perfect for long-time fans, as well as newer players looking to experience a slice of gaming history with these influential classics. Each game in the legendary Erdrick trilogy can be purchased separately as a digital download from the Nintendo eShop.
In the iconic DRAGON QUEST series, players embody a hero and embark on a quest to save the world, exploring environments and dungeons filled with monsters and magic. Upon release in 1986, the pivotal series became a cultural phenomenon, accumulating a large, passionate fan base of millions worldwide, and set the standard for the JRPG genre.
The three-part saga begins with an epic journey as the “Hero,” a legendary descendent of Erdrick, through the enchanting realm of Alefgard. A century later, in DRAGON QUEST II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line, players will work as a young prince of Midenhall as he sets out with his cousins — two additional descendants of Erdrick — to defeat an evil wizard named Hargon. The third title of the Erdrick saga, DRAGON QUEST III: The Seeds of Salvation, has players travel through the land of Aliahan, where a young hero embarks on a quest to save the world from the wickedly evil Demon Lord, Baramos.
DRAGON QUEST, DRAGON QUEST II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line and DRAGON QUEST III: The Seeds of Salvation are available to purchase separately for the Nintendo Switch from the Nintendo eShop now. For more information, visit: https://dragonquest.square-enix-games.com/
