Three Classic Dragon Quest Games are Coming to Switch this Month With Updated Visuals

Square Enix announced that the Erdrick trilogy of Dragon Quest titles, Dragon Quest, Dragon Quest II: Luminaries of the Legendary Lineand Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation will each be available digitally on the Switch eShop on September 27.

Dragon Quest first released in 1986 and was known in the west as Dragon Warrior, but that’s all in the past now. Over the years, the series has stayed true to its fantasy-based setting and classic JRPG presentation.

The publisher has added that the digital versions of these games mimic the retro controls of the series as to pay homage to where the legacy began. The character sprites and enemies have each been upgraded from their retro sprite models, but still, seem to fit in the game’s pixel world.

The Erdrick trilogy in Dragon Quest follows Erdrick through a journey into the realm of Alefgard. The players will catch up with him in each title with it ending on the third game where he plays an important roll in a new hero’s quests to fight the darkness.

Each game will be available as a standalong purchase with Dragon Quest launching at $4.99, Dragon Quest II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line launching at $6.49, and Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation launch at $12.49.
