Dragon Quest IV dated for Europe

The Chapters of the Chosen out next month.

The next Dragon Quest title will be heading to Europe on September 12th, Square-Enix has confirmed. That's four days before the US, import fans.

Released on Nintendo DS, Dragon Quest: The Chapters of the Chosen is the first in the 'Zenithia' trilogy, with Dragon Quest: The Hand of the Heavenly Bride and Dragon Quest: The Realms of Reverie to follow.

Never before released in Europe, The Chapters of the Chosen boasts character design by "world-famous" manga artist Akira Toriyama, and a "memorable" score from "renowned composer" Koichi Sugiyama.

Originally released as Dragon Quest IV for the NES back in February 1990 (and Dragon Warrior IV in North America in 1992), the DS remake has been spiffed up with 3D graphics, while "retaining the classic look and feel of the original". Presumably to not confuse our delicate European minds, the 'IV' has been dropped from the title for its release over here.

Told through multiple perspectives, this chapter-driven RPG features a typically 'epic' tale where a band of unrelated individuals eventually cross paths and team up to save the world. Like Heroes, then.
