Last week, Square Enix confirmed that it would be releasing an English version of the iOS port of Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen, which was initially launched in Japan last April. But it didn't say when exactly it had planned to release the game. Well, apparently there was only a one-week gap between its announcement and the anticipated launch. Indeed, Dragon Quest IV is officially out now on iOS. Or should I say, Dargon Quest IV? You see, the English edition of the game is now available on the App Store, but owing to a rather amusing typographical mistake, Dragon Quest IV is listed as Dargon Quest IV. Anyway, Dragon or Dargon, the game offers the same core gameplay experience as the original role-playing game, which was was first released for NES in 1990. And like its source material, Dragon Quest IV for iOS features a narrative structure comprising five chapters with different characters:
The game also has a so-called "Chapter 6" that lets you explore a bonus dungeon. Other Dragon Quest IV features include party talk (or companion chat), 360-degree views, a wagon quest, AI battles, and the classic casino. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later, Dragon Quest IV (aka Dargon Quest IV) is available now on the App Store for $14.99, with no in-app purchases. The official iOS release of Dragon Quest IV comes a couple of months after the official launch of Dragon Quest VIII for iOS.
