Propaganda found in the pages of Shonen Jump offers a new glimpse into the world of Dragon Quest Yangus, Square-Enix’s upcoming prequel to the popular Dragon Quest VIII.
Focusing on the childhood of Yangus, the sidekick of Dragon Quest VIII’s hero, the story begins when Yangus finds himself mysteriously transported to a strange, new world. And so, he begins his adventures through the Mysterious Dungeons.
Dragon Quest Yangus will feature randomly generated dungeons to explore, like other games in the “Mysterious Dungeon” series. While this feature isn’t a new concept, Dragon Quest Yangus takes it one step further, as all dungeons will re-generate every time a player leaves and re-enters them. Should players find a need to head back to town to restock supplies, they should expect to find a totally new dungeon awaiting them upon their return.
A release date for Dragon Quest Yangus has not yet been announced, nor has a North American translation been discussed at this time.
