Dragon Quest VIII

We have a few more screenshots of Dragon Quest VIII on 3DS. Each image can be seen in the gallery below.

According to the latest issue of Jump, Dragon Quest VIII will have a new ending. The magazine only provides clues of “a surprising development,” “furious King Clavius,” and “the protagonist gets depressed.”

Additionally, after completing Dragon Quest VIII, Jump mentions that players can take on a new dungeon called “The Ultimate Trial”. This has players looking for a never-before-seen “purple treasure chest.”
