My old PlayStation 2 just became a casualty of apartment cleaning, so it’s delightful to see Dragon Quest VIII — one of the PS2’s best role-playing games — on the iTunes Store today.
The New Zealand and Australian iTunes Store is typically used as a testbed for game releases on iPad and iPhone. Dragon Quest VIII is definitely one of the better Dragon Quests. Assuming the touch controls are at least tolerable, this will be worth your time.
The game is going for $24.99. Hopefully PSN is next, because I want to play this game with buttons. But, hey, at least soon we’ll be able to get DQVIII on a modern system.
