This sequel to the Dragon Warrior series comes to the PlayStation. This game, immensely popular in Japan under the name Dragon Quest, features the same turn-based battles against 2D animated monsters found in the previous series. True to its pedigree, the Dragon Warrior VII battle systems don’t show the player's characters, only the characters' stat information, on the screen. The movements of the enemies use an advanced form of the Monster Action feature first implemented in Dragon Quest VI (not seen in America), resulting in smoother, more numerous actions. There are many nostalgic mini-events brought back for this game, such as the Medal King and Town Building (a powered up version of the classic Dragon Warrior III mini-event).
The story starts on Esterd, a little island floating in the middle of a vast ocean. The inhabitants of the island do not believe in such things as monsters or even other lands. A young man in a little fishing village on this island finds a map that may be proof that something exists beyond Esterd Island. This discovery leads him on a journey to the edge of the world--and beyond. Akira Toriyama (the creator of Dragonball) returns once again as the character designer.
This RPG brings the pioneering series to new heights of interactive gaming achievement. True to the poignant, delightful themes that have captured the hearts of millions of Dragon Warrior fans, Dragon Warrior VII updates the series to what will be one of the best games ever for the PlayStation game console.
Your journey begins on Estard Isle...
