So get ready to play the epic that is DRAGON QUEST VIII from beginning to end—and far beyond! Prologue Legends tell of an ancient sceptre, within which is sealed a fearsome power... When the relic's long-dormant magics are awoken by the treachery of a malign magician, an entire kingdom falls into a cursed slumber, prompting a young soldier to embark on an unforgettable journey... Game Features – Simple, Accessible Controls The control system has been streamlined to work perfectly with modern touch interfaces. The position of the directional pad can be adjusted freely, enabling players to switch between one-handed and two-handed play with a tap of the screen. The combat system has also been reworked, allowing for one-tap battles as well as more complex play. – The Tension System During battle, you can select 'Psyche Up' to give your next attack some extra oomph! The more you psyche a character up, the higher their tension will rise, until they finally reach an insane state known as super-high tension! – Skill Points Skill points are earned when your characters level up, and can be assigned to various skills in order to learn new spells and abilities. This system allows you to perfectly tailor your team to your liking. – Monster Teams Certain monsters found in the field can be scouted for your monster team – if you're tough enough to beat them, that is! Once assembled, your crack squad can take part in the fiercely contested tournaments held at the monster arena, and can even come to your aid in battle! – The Alchemy Pot Combine existing items to create entirely new ones! Even the most unassuming objects could be ingredients for the greatest items of all! Seek out the recipes hidden all over the world, and see if you can cook up something truly special! – The Casino Fans of the series will be pleased to learn that the casino is back, and fully-equipped for fun!

  • Come on, it doesn’t work on iOS11...

    Update please....
  • iCloud save not working

    By Rockmaster1990
    I will change to 5 stars when the iCloud save feature is fixed because the game is worth 5 stars. Also, please add in controller support like you guys had for Final Fantasy 9. You have to stop making these games available on any App Store and completely ignoring the updates required to make them work correctly and or better. That is the fastest way for your company to lose its infamy. Speaking of, stop making terrible games and start making games that could match this one, Final Fantasy 7, 9, and 10. 12’s only good thing was it’s battle system. 13 was trash, 14 and 15 aren’t far behind it. Give us some good games with good stories that have a good balance please. No more garbage
  • iCloud BROKEN for over a YEAR!!!

    By ShojiC
    I had to email support FOUR TIMES before they said they would escalate!!! One of the greatest video games of all time RUINED because you REFUSE to fix iCloud saves. Playing for hundred hours? Need to upgrade your iPhone? TOO BAD you lose ALL YOUR WORK AND SAVES!!! Want to switch to iPad when you get home? NOPE! We don’t fix broken iCloud saves! After wasting time arguing with support that this is a well known bug for over a year they still haven’t fixed it!!!
  • iCloud service doesn’t work at all

    By JayXu83
    It has been several years, please fix or remove this function. It works well on artepiazza production from 1-6 without issue. But on Level 5, it always fail. And we need western or Chinese version of DQ7 on IOS. Please!!!!!
  • Needs an update

    By TriEdge D Trace
    This is mostly in regards to how S.E. basically ignores their games after three months. It needs an update to at least support iPhone X, and to fix the issue it’s had almost since launch with iCloud saves. I haven’t been able to play it to completion because I lose my save data at some point. The games amazing, it just needs some fixing.
  • iCloud doesn’t work

    By Tangx63
    I have been playing this game very casually for about 3 yrs now. Great game but now that I have a new iPhone X since my other one took a beating and does not fully work anymore. I cannot retrieve my old game save on the iCloud. Send tickets and nothing new really from what I have been reading from others with same problem. SE blames Apple and Apple blames SE. iCloud function used to work great for this game before and I noticed it stopped working roughly a year ago. I did not pay any real mind to it since I was not planning on a new phone then. Please fix this. A good amount of us paid full price for this when it can out such as myself which I believe was around $30. I also have every other dragon quest and final fantasy game you guys produced and all of their iCloud functions work perfectly fine. This is the only game where it doesn’t work from all of your titles I own. I’ve been a loyal customer when you were square soft and Enix apart since the late 80’s. Please fix. Thank you.
  • Hot garbage of a former great game

    By Shb10865
    How are they charging 20$ for this? It literally runs at 15 frames per second. This is the laziest port I’ve ever seen. This is worth no more than a buck or two to get the nastalgia fix for a few minutes. Pros: *the original game was great Cons: *portrait mode only. *Runs at 15 fps or less on a 2017 iPad Pro. *Replaced original beautiful soundtrack with a crappier midi Doppleganger. *20$ wasted. *unresponsive controls. Unfortunately there’s no chance they will ever come back and fix this, yet I guess they feel justified somehow to still take 20 dollars per person, who every single person will open the game up, I swear this, and say this is unplayable. Conclusion: This is a cash grab like selling paintings you accidentally spilled paint on and calling it a Jackson pollack.
  • Awesome.

    By Rellik Laer
    Love this game. Owned it on Ps2. And now got it on Apple. So excited. Only wish it supported a game pad or wireless controller. If that could be add. Would be totally awesome. Thanks for the app!!!
  • iPhone X optimization

    By philliphekmati
    This game looks tiny, and honestly, awful on iPhone X. A full screen update would be appreciated, even if it is an in-app purchase.

    By Mardek I.D.2072608673
    I am so worried about breaking/losing my device and having to start all over because the cloud save doesn’t work. This game would have been 5 star if it wasn’t for this.
