Dragon Quest V Raids The Play Store With A Party Full Of Monsters Demanding $14.99

Square Enix has been quick about porting the Dragon Quest entries to Android, even if they haven't come in necessarily the right order. We got Dragon Quest VIII in May of last year, followed by IV in August, the original in September, II the next month, and III in December. Now Square Enix has brought over Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Blade.

The World Of Square Enix's Dragon Quest III Is Now Open To Android Gamers Who Can Spare $9.99 For The Journey

The Dragon Quest series may be larger in Japan than overseas, but it has accumulated no shortage of fans and acclaim over the years. Square Enix has ported several entries to Android, with RPG forebearers like Dragon Quest I & II sitting on the company's Google Play listing alongside the likes of IV and VIII. Dragon Quest III is the latest game in the franchise to grace our mobile platform.

Dragon Quest III launched in Japan in the late 80s, came to the US as Dragon Warrior III in the early 90s, and introduced many gameplay elements that have since entrenched themselves in the genre, such as its class system and open structure.

Square Enix Releases Secret Of Mana For $9, Sets A New Standard For Awful Game Icons [Updated]

Update #2: Before continuing, recognize that this post was written with my tongue firmly in cheek. I intended for it to be humorous, but clearly I didn't articulate myself as well as I should have.

So let me clear things up. This is a mobile port of a classic, and it is absolutely worth your money. If you played the original and have longed to play it again, download this. If you love Square Enix ports, download this. If you love JRPGs in general, then by all means, download this. The Mana series, despite being woefully neglected in the years since, is absolutely worth your time.

Square Enix Keeps Expanding Its Collection Of Classic RPG Ports With Dragon Quest II, Available Now For $4.99

Square seems to have run out of Final Fantasy games for Android (and no, you can't have FFVII, so stop asking). The company has been going to its Enix side for mobile re-releases as of late, publishing Dragon Quest VIII, then Dragon Quest IV, then the original Dragon Quest to the Play Store. And since Square Enix is apparently ready to start counting in the right order, you can now play Dragon Quest II in non-emulated form for the not-so-low price of five bucks.

Dragon Quest II was originally released on the NES way back in 1987.

Square Enix Releases Champ Man 15, The Frowniest Soccer Management Game Ever, On The Play Store

Pardon me, readers. This is usually where I make a distinction to point out the fact that most of the world calls its favorite sport football. (We do that in America too, but it's a different football, and we call everyone else's football "soccer.") That isn't important. What is important is that Square Enix thinks that the image below is the best way to advertise its new game, Champ Man 15.

Look at this man. According to Google Image Search, he's Arsène Wenger, the manager of London's Arsenal Football Club. According to his face, Arsène's doctor just told him that there was no choice but to amputate the arm he burned unsuccessfully attempting to save his dog and her litter of puppies from the fire in his 100-year-old family home.

[New Game] Square Enix Has Dragon Quest IV Behind The Counter, Will Let It Go For $14.99

The time has come to ready your body for another Square Enix port. As usual, you're in for a treat compared to the usual mobile gaming fare. But at the same time, these goods are going to cost you. The company has dropped Dragon Quest IV into the Play Store, and it won't hand it over until you pay $14.99.

Dragon Quest IV originally launched for the Nintendo Entertainment System in the early 90s, but it later appeared on the first PlayStation and the Nintendo DS in an updated form. This port looks closer to the latter two. It's obviously not going to be quite as snazzy as the last game in the series Square Enix brought to Android, Dragon Quest VIII, but it's not a blast of 8-bit nostalgia either.

The World Ends With you came out on the Nintendo DS in 2008, and it quickly became a surprising hit, reviving developer Square Enix in the minds of RPG fans everywhere. With the fresh setting of contemporary Tokyo, an art style inspired by graffiti, and a unique battle system that took advantage of the DS hardware, it's easy to see why. The enhanced iOS version came out almost two years ago, but as typical with Square releases, it's just now coming to Android.

If I had to describe the game in a single sentence, I'd say it's a turn-based RPG version of Jet Set Radio where teenagers play The Hunger Games in Hell.
