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.

You'll Be Able To Play Dragon Quest VIII On iOS Soon [Kotaku]

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.more
