Square Enix is giving the smartphone treatment to the Dragon Quest series, with the first eight numbered games all on the way to iOS and Android. Dragon Quest 1
gets things started this year, a teaser site
confirming it's coming to iOS and Android in Japan in the winter.
There's no word on prices yet, or which versions of each game will be ported over; DQ 5
and DQ 6
recently came to DS, for example. The announcement is only for Japan, but bear in mind Square Enix released smartphone ports for Final Fantasy 1-5 worldwide.
Meanwhile, a new Dragon Quest Monsters game, subtitled Super Light
, is also on the way to iOS and Android. There are no details on the spinoff entry as yet, but you can go enjoy a cavalcade of bleepy bloopy sound effects
on its teaser site.
