While Western fans of the Dragon Quest series haven’t been able to enjoy new entries of the series in quite some time, there has been no lack of new Dragon Quest releases in Japan, including brand new games and ports of older entries. Last week Square Enix revealed that the PlayStation 2 entry of the series, Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, is going to be released on Nintendo 3DS in Japan this August.

Aside from the fact that the game is coming this Summer in Japan, not much was known about Dragon Quest VIII 3DS but some new details have emerged online today thanks to this month’s issue of the Japanese magazine V-Jump, which confirmed that this new version of the game will have some additional features not found in the original one

The magazine has confirmed that Dragon Quest VIII 3DS will include two new Story Scenarios which weren’t available in the original PlayStation 2 release called “Dhoulmagus’ Past” and “The Hero’s Childhood.” The first new scenario sounds quite interesting, as it’s going to reveal more of the past of the game’s main villain. You can take a look at a scan including two screenshots by going at the end of this post.

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King has been originally released on PlayStation 2 back in 2005. The North American release of the game has been released one year after the Japanese version and it includes some new features not found in the original release such as a full orchestral soundtrack and voice acting. The 3DS version of the game will retain these new elements, alongside other new features that have yet to be detailed in full.

Dragon Quest VIII 3DS has been confirmed only for Japan at the time and there are no news on a possible Western release of the game. We will let you know more about the matter as soon as more comes in on it so stay tuned for all the latest news.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
