Once the app is downloaded, there's no more to pay, as every last shred of content is yours to enjoy.
So get ready to play the epic that is DRAGON QUEST VIII from beginning to end—and far beyond!

Prologue
Legends tell of an ancient sceptre, within which is sealed a fearsome power...
When the relic's long-dormant magics are awoken by the treachery of a malign magician, an entire kingdom falls into a cursed slumber, prompting a young soldier to embark on an unforgettable journey...

Game Features
– Simple, Accessible Controls
The control system has been streamlined to work perfectly with modern touch interfaces.
The position of the directional pad can be adjusted freely, enabling players to switch between one-handed and two-handed play with a tap of the screen.
The combat system has also been reworked, allowing for one-tap battles as well as more complex play.

– The Tension System
During battle, you can select 'Psyche Up' to give your next attack some extra oomph!
The more you psyche a character up, the higher their tension will rise, until they finally reach an insane state known as super-high tension!

– Skill Points
Skill points are earned when your characters level up, and can be assigned to various skills in order to learn new spells and abilities.
This system allows you to perfectly tailor your team to your liking.

– Monster Teams
Certain monsters found in the field can be scouted for your monster team – if you're tough enough to beat them, that is!
Once assembled, your crack squad can take part in the fiercely contested tournaments held at the monster arena, and can even come to your aid in battle!

– The Alchemy Pot
Combine existing items to create entirely new ones!
Even the most unassuming objects could be ingredients for the greatest items of all!
Seek out the recipes hidden all over the world, and see if you can cook up something truly special!

– The Casino
Fans of the series will be pleased to learn that the casino is back, and fully-equipped for fun!
This time around, there are three exciting activities to enjoy: bingo, slot machines and roulette!
Just don't get so caught up in the action that you forget your adventure entirely!
