Yesterday, Square-Enix revealed some brand new screenshots for Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King on Nintendo 3DS. Those came with some details about one of the new scenarios, which involves Dhoulmagus.
At one point in the adventure, the party ends up at a castle which was been cursed by the jester: everyone seems really sad, and the place has fallen to a rather dark atmosphere. Of course, they decide to find a way to lift the curse, and in doing so, they get involved in a mysterious kidnapping case (with the owner of a Casino).
When exploring dungeons, you will be able to count on the other characters in your party, who are always ready to help. What’s more, during your adventure, you can have random conversation with them, but also get hints on what to do or where to go next.
Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (3DS) comes out on August 27th in Japan.
