Dragon Quest VIII is headed to iOS shortly, so play it if you haven't yet

Don't worry, there are Slimes aplenty

Still haven't played and enjoyed Dragon Quest VIII? Is your PlayStation 2 gathering dust? One more question: Do you have an iPhone or iPad? You do? Awesome. You'll want to pick up the localized mobile version of the fantastic JRPG, once it's available in an iTunes Store near you.

Right now, the vertically-oriented touch screen port of the popular entry in the Dragon Quest saga is up for gamers in New Zealand for $25 in local currency, which means it'll likely run around $20 or so for US buyers. Hopefully it'll be cheaper, but the fact that it's being re-released is worth the entry price alone. This is one Dragon Quest you don't want to miss out on. Then go pick up the DS entries. Trust me on this, guys.

We'll keep you updated so you can pick up the US version as soon as possible. You know you want to.
