You won't be hacking and slashing much in the first hour of Dragon Quest Heroes 2

I’ve actually never played a Dragon Quest game before. I know of the series and some of its creatures, but my largest piece of knowledge is about how an elderly Japanese actress wanted to play IX before she died. To say I walked int...   read

Dragon Quest producer: 'We're still trying to make the series popular in the west'

Appealing to a general western crowd with a JRPG is tough all around, not just for recognizable brands like Dragon Quest. While it's still wildly popular in Japan and warrants an unofficial holiday on each release, it's not as big as say, F...   read

Then and now: Dragon Quest

[LaTerry thinks back on what Dragon Quest used to be and how it's grown to be one of his most enduring favorites. It doesn't generate as much buzz in the West as Final Fantasy but damn is it not just a stalwart franchise of JRPGs. Want to s...   read
