This is the last way I want to play Dragon Quest VIII. If there was an HD collection for console I would be all over that, but this? Argh. It's weird to see some publishers push for HD upgrades for core gamers, versus other publishers almost demaking their games for mobile. I guess that's just the western vs. Japanese market right now.

It could be worse. There could be, dare I say it, micro-transactions.

Avalith Very true. Some of Square Enix's mobile RPGs aren't just unfortunate, they're disgusting.

Agreed, glad I still have my copy of DXVIII. Its nice how Japan gets this yet we're still waiting on 3 different games.

The auto-battle addition isn't bad though at least, the Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quest Monsters games do the same thing.

A new hope crashed so quickly. D:

I hear ya.
You would think they would make it(in HD) on PS3/4 or even the Vita before they would make it for *shudders* smartphones...

It's been 10 years already? Shit, I'm getting old.

I too am disappointed to see this on mobile but I'll likely end up getting it anyway. Can't pass up the opportunity to replay one of my favorite games of all time!

Does it at least have controller support or support for Android devices such as Nvidia Shield?

I can't believe DQ8 is already 10. Where did the time go?
