Square Enix has officially released the iOS port of Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation.
Originally released for NES in 1988 and soft-launched on iOS in Japan last September, Dragon Quest III is the concluding installment in the Erdrick trilogy from the popular Dragon Quest series of role-playing games. Chronologically, however, it’s a prequel installment whose story revolves around the “hero”:
On the morning of their sixteenth birthday, the child of Ortega, hero of the land of Aliahan, is charged with a seemingly impossible task by the King himself: to slay the Archfiend Baramos, master of darkness! What trials await our intrepid hero as they set out to take on a quest not even their legendary father was strong enough to complete?
Dragon Quest III for iOS features a customizable party system, changeable vocations, intuitive controls, and over 30 hours of gameplay. It also boasts synthesizer sounds by the classical composer Koichi Sugiyama and manga illustrations by Akira Toriyama of “Dragon Ball” fame.
Dragon Quest III for iOS is available now on the App Store as a $9.99 universal download, with no in-app purchases whatsoever.
Dragon Quest V is set to be released on iOS in Japan next week.
