Dragon Quest: The Chapters of the Chosen is a feature-packed remake of one of the best-selling adventure games ever made. Now, for the first time in Europe, you too can experience this timeless classic only on Nintendo DS!

As game designer and scenario writer, Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii weaves a captivating narrative set in a vibrant fantasy world. Over five distinct chapters, focusing on the stories of a disparate band of heroes, players will traverse land, sea and sky on an epic quest to defeat a great evil. Along the way, players will meet and befriend a colourful cast of characters designed by world-famous comic book artist Akira Toriyama (creator of the Dragon Ball series).

Completing the line-up of world-class creative talent, renowned composer and conductor Koichi Sugiyama contributes an unforgettable musical score that perfectly captures the mood of Dragon Quest, immersing you wholly in its unique world.
  • The first appearance of this all-time classic Dragon Quest adventure in Europe!
  • Unique narrative, with four apparently separate tales, each with its own distinctive characters, combining to form one final epic adventure with you as the hero!
  • A vast and beautiful world to explore, packed with people to meet, monsters to battle and priceless treasures to discover!
  • Completely reworked dual-screen 3D visuals and orchestral sound complement classic gameplay to deliver a wholly new experience.
  • Use DS Wireless Play to welcome pioneers met through chance encounters in the real-world into your very own frontier town, transforming your sleepy settlement into a buzzing metropolis!

 Worth the 18 Year Wait

Well what can I say other than this simply eclipses the Final Fantasy series in terms of characterisation, story and dare I say, fun.

The remake has been made from the ground-up using the Dragon Quest VII graphics engine and it looks very spiffy on the DS. Unlike Final Fantasy with it's usually poor dialogue, this has been localised very solidly and the interpretation of the world and the events which lie within put new Japanese RPG's to shame. And remember this was 18 years ago...

I wouldn't want to spoil any more for the inquisitive buyer other than saying it's well worth the asking price. Yes, in places it feels like an older title (if that bothers you at all), but it is certainly a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stale genre. Recommended!

 Top Notch Remake!

An excellent remake of a very dated 2D NES RPG that never made it to either Europe or America. The strength of the story is remarkable, with five seperate plotlines, and sets of characters being introduced before they finally merge in the last chapter of the game. It's an unusual style of RPG that gives it the feeling of re-starting afresh every few hours.

Be aware that this is the first re-make in a trilogy of re-makes for the DS, this originally being Dragon Quest 4, which will bring 4, 5 and 6 to English speaking shores. This trilogy is known as the Zenithia Trilogy and all three games are held in high regard by JRPG fanatics. Although these are billed as a trilogy they do not share plot points or characters and operate in similar fashion to the Final Fantasy games.

Overall I have no problem recommending this to anyone interested in RPGs. It's accessible, has a great story and the minor grinding needed never feels like a chore and suits itself to on-the-move play.
