Dragon Quest VIII, the Dragon Quest series entry released on PlayStation 2 years back before getting recently ported on smartphones, is going to be released on Nintendo 3DS in around two months with plenty of new content. Among the new features not found in the original release are two new party members, Red and Morrie.

Today Square Enix has released a brand new batch of Dragon Quest VIII 3DS screenshots, showcasing these two new party members as well as battles, skills and more. You can check out these new screenshots by going at the end of this post.

Another batch of Dragon Quest VIII 3DS screenshots has been made available last week, showcasing more of the extra content included in the upcoming new 3DS release. The screenshots focus on the new story scenario called Dhoulmagus’ Past, which will reveal more on the game’s main villain. Another scenario detailing the hero’s origins will also be included in the new version of the game.

Earlier this month new Dragon Quest VIII 3DS gameplay footage has surfaced online, showcasing some new monsters, the blue chests which will appear on the field and respawn after a set amount of time and more.

While the new Dragon Quest remake has yet to be confirmed for the West, North American and European players will still be able to play a new entry of the series later this year. Square Enix confirmed a while back that Dragon Quest Heroes is going to be released on PlayStation 4 this October. This spin-off game has been praised quite a bit by the Japanese gaming press so fans of the series are going to be in for something really nice.

Dragon Quest VIII 3DS will be released in Japan this August. Unfortunately there are no news on a possible Western release of the game but we will keep you updated on the matter as soon as possible so stay tuned for all the latest news on the latest Dragon Quest series remake.

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.
