As promised a few days ago, Square Enix released the original Dragon Quest and Dragon Quest II on the Japanese PlayStation Store.
Alongside the release, we also get the first screenshots, to give you a look at how the two games look on a 1080p screen. That’s some big pixels right there.
You can find Dragon Quest here, and Dragon Quest II here, priced at 648 and 918 yen respectively. Of course you need a Japanese PSN account to purchase and download them, but if you don’t know how to get one, you can use our handy guide.
Incidentally, the original Dragon Quest can be received for free by completing Dragon Quest XI.
The original Dragon Quest was released in 1986 in Japan, starting what has certainly become the most popular video game series in the country. Dragon Quest II launched just a year later, in 1987, in a time when game development certainly was simpler.
If you want an example of just how popular the series is, look no further than the performance of Dragon Quest XI, that shipped over three million copies in a week, dominating the Media Create charts for two weeks in a row. And it’s probably going to keep going strong for a while.
If you’re wondering, that’s going to be released in the west next year, even if we don’t know the platforms just yet (in Japan it has been released for PS4 and 3DS, with a Switch version to come).
