Square are tugging at that PS2 era nostalgia.
Dragon Quest games have never been as big in the west as they are in Japan, but Dragon Quest 8 back on the PS2 managed to find the most mainstream success a game in the franchise has managed to gain outside of Japan on consoles since the original one was distributed for free with Nintendo Power back in the day. With the impending release of Dragon Quest 11 on the PS4 and PC next month, Square Enix have decided to tap into the nostalgia for the PS2 game.
Thus, they will be offering Dragon Quest 8 themed costumes for the game’s main character to all players for absolutely free. These costumes will be available in your inventory, and will give your character stat boosts that might be helpful in the early game.
And now, Square has released a brand new trailer showing off this costume in Dragon Quest 11, which is sure to tug at your heartstrings. The game launches on PS4 and PC next month.
