Dragon Quest VIII 3DS has a new dungeon and boss; “big title” reveal next week

Plus, a look at the game's new package artwork.

The latest issue of Weekly Jump reveals the 3DS version of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, due out August 27 in Japan, will have an additional dungeon featuring a new boss monster named Jahagaros. There’s also a look at the game’s new box art illustrated by Akira Toriyama.

The same page also teases that Weekly Jump will have a “big title” revealed in next week’s issue. It will apparently surprise everyone and make them say “Nuwaaa!” Which, as Hachima Kikou points out, is a quote from Pankraz in Dragon Quest V.
