Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King for 3DS has a new Story Trailer

Nintendo UK has released a new trailer for the upcoming Dragon Quest VIII port for the Nintendo 3DS. The new trailer re-introduce players to the fantastic story we all remember back in the PS2 era.

You can check out a brief overview of the story below:


The story begins when a jester, Dhoulmagus, comes to Castle Trodain and steals the King’s sceptre. He then uses its power to turn his majesty into a troll, the Princess into a horse and the castle inhabitants into plants. The only one left unscathed from this attack is a castle guard who escaped the curse and must now step up to save the kingdom he’s sworn to protect. Only by traveling the lands, recruiting allies and following the trail of destruction that Dhoulmagus leaves in his wake will The Hero be able to retrieve the sceptre in order to restore Trodain back to its former glory.
