You can pre-order it starting now on PlayStation 4 or Steam for $59.99. This is the first time a leading series Dragon Quest game has been on Steam, an exciting first that hopefully signals more JRPG releases for PC.
Are you a fan of the series or would this be your first entry? I have played most of the main series myself and cannot wait for this to be localized! My first experience with the series was the GameBoy color port of Dragon Warrior III when I was a kid, such a great game!
