Dragon Quest - Nintendo Switch

Square Enix is bringing the original three Dragon Quest games to Nintendo Switch this month.

Video game publisher, Square Enix, has confirmed that the first three games in the long-running Dragon Quest RPG series will be released digitally via the Nintendo eShop on September 27, 2019.

Dragon Quest, Dragon Quest II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line, and Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvatio were originally released for the NES between 1986 and 1988. Unfortunately, the Switch editions are not ports of the originals. Instead, they are ports of the previously released mobile versions which sport slightly updated graphics and sound.

The first game will be priced at $4.99 in the United States, with the second and third priced at $6.49 and $12.49 respectively.

All three games will be released on the same day as the Nintendo Switch edition of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
