Dragon’s Dogma Quest is headed to the PlayStation Vita in Japan this Fall, this week’s issue of Famitsu reveals. Before you get too excited, though, note that this is a free-to-play, online-only 2D RPG.

 

This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine (via: Game Jouhou) says Dragon’s Dogma Quest has over 150 jobs and is a fast-paced RPG you can play on the go. Famitsu says the player watches over the fights, issuing commands, and also levels up.

 

There’s more of a focus on strategy than action in Dragon’s Dogma Quest, but the game hopes to capture the spirit of Dragon’s Dogma, where you decide your strategies based on the enemy’s appearance.

 

Players can explore dungeons, towns, villages, and take on many sub-quests. You bring four of your pawns and can they can team up with four of your friends’ pawns, too, so one party can have a maximum of eight characters.

 

Famitsu also mentions that Dragon’s Dogma Quest, while being a free-to-play game, will have a billing model to assist those that don’t have a lot of time on their hands to play.

 

Update: More details added; slight corrections made.
