Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen arrives on mobile
Square Enix announced that their chapter-based role-playing game, Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen, is now available on iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and Android, following the successful launch of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King.
This game marks the first installment in the Zenithian Trilogy, featuring an epic adventure that unfolds over five unique chapters. Each of these chapters allows you to experience the storyline from the perspective of different casts of characters who are all on a journey to save the world. These characters will soon become the “Hero’s” future companions, with the final chapter being told from his view.
Noriyoshi Fujimoto, producer of the mobile version of Dragon Quest IV, stated, “Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen really encapsulates all the JRPG elements Dragon Quest fans covet – a fascinating story combined with classic RPG gameplay. Given the title’s immense success on other platforms, we knew that re-releasing it for mobile devices was inevitable. Our fans can now re-live this compelling tale in one standalone package with 40-plus hours of battles, mysteries and a delightful ensemble of characters.”
