Square-Enix Announces Dragon Quest, Dragon Quest II and Dragon Quest III for Nintendo Switch

Square-Enix has announced today that the classic Dragon Quest trilogy of NES titles will release on Nintendo Switch on September 27th, 2019 to coincide with the release of Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age.

Square-Enix’s press release states:

Square Enix Ltd., announced that the first three classic games in the DRAGON QUEST series will be released for the Nintendo Switch™ system on 27th September.

Fans can rediscover the origins of the legendary RPG series and the entire Erdrick trilogy in DRAGON QUEST, DRAGON QUEST II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line and DRAGON QUEST III: The Seeds of Salvation, available individually via digital download from the Nintendo eShop.

Upon release in 1986, the pivotal DRAGON QUEST series became a cultural phenomenon, accumulating a large, passionate fan base of millions worldwide, and set the standard for the JRPG genre. These three classic titles feature simple and intuitive controls that mimic retro gameplay, paying homage to where the legacy began.

The iconic Erdrick trilogy begins in the acclaimed DRAGON QUEST where players begin their voyage as the “Hero,” a descendent of the valiant hero Erdrick in an epic journey through the historic realm of Alefgard. DRAGON QUEST II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line takes place a century later, where the young prince of Midenhall embarks on a journey to find the other two descendants of Erdrick in order to defeat the nefarious Hargon. The third and final title in the Erdrick trilogy, DRAGON QUEST III: The Seeds of Salvation, takes players through the land of Aliahan, where a young hero has been charged with an impossible task of slaying Baramos, the master of darkness.

DRAGON QUEST, DRAGON QUEST II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line and DRAGON QUEST III: The Seeds of Salvation will be available to purchase individually for the Nintendo Switch system on 27th September 2019, via digital download from the Nintendo eShop.
