Square Enix Hands Dragon Quest V To North America This February


Finished Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen yet? Better get working on it. Chrono Trigger comes out in November and shortly afterwards Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride. Classic RPG fans can look forward to an English release on February 17, 2009.


The story in Dragon Quest V: Hand in the Heavenly Bride begins with the hero as a child journeying with his father appropriately named Papas. Things seem like they’re going well for the hero until fate turns and the young hero becomes a slave. Dragon Quest V then fast forwards to the future where the hero is an adult, strong enough to escape, and ready to marry. One of the highlights in Dragon Quest V is you get to pick a bride. The DS version ups the ante by adding Deborah, a new bride, to tickle your fancy. But, since this is the first time Dragon Quest V is getting an official release in North America all of the game is new for most of us.
