Dragon Quest VIII for 3DS

Square Enix has released a new set of screenshots for the 3DS version of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, introducing the 3DS version’s new post-game dungeon.

Although there was an after story following the ending in the original version, the 3DS version adds an additional post-game side element: the hero and friends tread on into the Unknown Dungeon, the “ultimate trial,” where there are purple treasure chests and a mysterious door where an ominous presence can be felt beyond.

Dragon Quest VIII is due out for 3DS in Japan on August 27.
