Dragon Quest gets release date

It's out here next month.

Square-Enix has announced the UK release date for highly anticipated PS2 title Dragon Quest: The Journey of the Cursed King - and the good news is there's not long to wait.

The game has already been a huge hit in Japan, where it's become the country's best selling PS2 game of all time. And deservedly so, as you'll know if you read our review.

The UK version will feature some nice extras such as English voiceovers recorded by a British cast, a full orchestral soundtrack, a revamped menu system, new battle abilities and better animations.

Dragon Quest: The Journey of the Cursed King is out here on April 13th, and even if your knowledge of RPGs only extends to a rough idea of what those letters stand for, you really ought to give it a go.
