The phenomenally popular DRAGON QUEST VIII has sold 4.9 million units worldwide, and now it's coming to the iPhone and iPad for the first time! This was the first title in the series to be presented in full 3D, and its exquisitely detailed world has to be seen to be believed! Set off on an unforgettable adventure with Yangus, the bandit with a heart of gold, Jessica, the high-born magical minx, and Angelo, knight and lothario, by your side! Everything you need is here in a single package! Once the app is downloaded, there's no more to pay, as every last shred of content is yours to enjoy. So get ready to play the epic that is DRAGON QUEST VIII from beginning to end—and far beyond! Prologue Legends tell of an ancient sceptre, within which is sealed a fearsome power... When the relic's long-dormant magics are awoken by the treachery of a malign magician, an entire kingdom falls into a cursed slumber, prompting a young soldier to embark on an unforgettable journey... Game Features – Simple, Accessible Controls The control system has been streamlined to work perfectly with modern touch interfaces. The position of the directional pad can be adjusted freely, enabling players to switch between one-handed and two-handed play with a tap of the screen. The combat system has also been reworked, allowing for one-tap battles as well as more complex play. – The Tension System During battle, you can select 'Psyche Up' to give your next attack some extra oomph! The more you psyche a character up, the higher their tension will rise, until they finally reach an insane state known as super-high tension! – Skill Points Skill points are earned when your characters level up, and can be assigned to various skills in order to learn new spells and abilities. This system allows you to perfectly tailor your team to your liking. – Monster Teams Certain monsters found in the field can be scouted for your monster team – if you're tough enough to beat them, that is! Once assembled, your crack squad can take part in the fiercely contested tournaments held at the monster arena, and can even come to your aid in battle! – The Alchemy Pot Combine existing items to create entirely new ones! Even the most unassuming objects could be ingredients for the greatest items of all! Seek out the recipes hidden all over the world, and see if you can cook up something truly special! – The Casino Fans of the series will be pleased to learn that the casino is back, and fully-equipped for fun!

  • Wish I could give it a 3.5

    By Klekleo
    The game is not as bad as people say it is. Yes, the frame rate is pretty bad but, after awhile of play, it’s easy to get used to. The absence of voice, from what I’ve heard from the original DQ8, doesn’t take away from experience, (if anything it adds to it...). And for the controls, they’re pretty good in my opinion. I’m not a big DQ fan but I can still see why this is considered to be one of the best JRPGs of all time by just playing this port. I’m having lots of fun playing this and don’t regret my purchase. -The Verdict- DQ8 on mobile is not bad, but it certainly isn’t great. The polish it had is gone but the core game die hard fans know and love is still there.
  • Update please

    By Miked5598
    Excellent port prior to getting the iphone X. Please update this app for newer phones.
  • Fix iCloud save!!!!

    By MrCoolBreath
    Come on SE... do something. Idc if it’s your fault or apples fault. Take some initiative and fix your game. I paid money for this. I want it to work properly at the very least.
  • Lag fix? Love the game...

    By Josh Starner
    This is one of my favorite games, was super excited when I saw I could get it on my iPad... but once I downloaded it, the game noticeably lags? I have a new iPad so is there a fix?

    Update please....
  • iCloud save not working

    By Rockmaster1990
    I will change to 5 stars when the iCloud save feature is fixed because the game is worth 5 stars. Also, please add in controller support like you guys had for Final Fantasy 9. You have to stop making these games available on any App Store and completely ignoring the updates required to make them work correctly and or better. That is the fastest way for your company to lose its infamy. Speaking of, stop making terrible games and start making games that could match this one, Final Fantasy 7, 9, and 10. 12’s only good thing was it’s battle system. 13 was trash, 14 and 15 aren’t far behind it. Give us some good games with good stories that have a good balance please. No more garbage
  • iCloud BROKEN for over a YEAR!!!

    By ShojiC
    I had to email support FOUR TIMES before they said they would escalate!!! One of the greatest video games of all time RUINED because you REFUSE to fix iCloud saves. Playing for hundred hours? Need to upgrade your iPhone? TOO BAD you lose ALL YOUR WORK AND SAVES!!! Want to switch to iPad when you get home? NOPE! We don’t fix broken iCloud saves! After wasting time arguing with support that this is a well known bug for over a year they still haven’t fixed it!!!
  • iCloud service doesn’t work at all

    By JayXu83
    It has been several years, please fix or remove this function. It works well on artepiazza production from 1-6 without issue. But on Level 5, it always fail. And we need western or Chinese version of DQ7 on IOS. Please!!!!!
  • Needs an update

    By TriEdge D Trace
    This is mostly in regards to how S.E. basically ignores their games after three months. It needs an update to at least support iPhone X, and to fix the issue it’s had almost since launch with iCloud saves. I haven’t been able to play it to completion because I lose my save data at some point. The games amazing, it just needs some fixing.
