The latest set of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King for 3DS screenshots introduce the game’s StreetPass element.
Get the details below.
You can personalize the photos you take in Camera Mode with stamps, frames, and various arrangements. You can alter your stamp’s size and angle to your liking.
There were additional costumes in the original game, but the 3DS version significantly increases the costume lineup. Of course, you can use these costumes to take even nicer pictures.
StreetPass Photo Postcards
When you’ve finished customizing your photos, you can exchange them with friends via StreetPass. Exchanging photos is easy. After selecting the one you’d like to send to everyone, you can add a message and create a “Postcard.” If someone else has also set a postcard, you’ll automatically exchange postcards when you pass them. You can also see how your postcards have been evaluated (“Interesting,” “Pretty,” “Surprising”), as well as how many times it’s been passed around. Based on this, you can receive rewards like items or additional photo arrangements.
Internet Photo Postcards
In addition to sharing photo postcards via StreetPass, you can also share them via the internet.
Additionally, you’ll also get a look at the game’s alchemy element, casino, and Monster Arena. Unlike the original PS2 release, items created via alchemy in the 3DS version are completed immediately upon putting in materials, and there are tons of new items. The Monster Arena adds a new rank and new scoutable monsters.
Dragon Quest VIII is due out for 3DS in Japan on August 27.
