Dragon Quest became an instant classic when it launched on the Nintendo Famicom in 1986. The first two sequels formed the Erdrick Trilogy. All three games will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch on September 27th to coincide with the latest modern release in the series, Dragon Quest XI S: Echos of an Elusive Age.
The Switch versions of the games will be based on the mobile ports for snmartphones, which were originally released in 2004. These versions were later published on Android and iOS and are the basis for the Switch games. These mobile versions have graphics from the 16-bit remakes of the games, but they aren’t perfect. They have a lack of enemies’ and facial animations for instance. The Game Boy Color versions of the first three Dragon Quest adventures are considered the best way for Westerners to experience the games according to fans.
Dragon Quest, Dragon Quest II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line and Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation will be available as separate downloads on the Nintendo Switch e-Shop. You can expect a total of about 60 hours of combined gameplay, so JRPG fans will want to clear a few days on their calendar to play these games.
