Square Enix have announced that the game is available now for iOS and Android devices, priced at £10.99.
Considered to be one of the best games in the entire Dragon Quest series; Dragon Quest: The Hand of the Heavenly Bride was originally released in 1992 in Japan only, but went on to enjoy a much-welcomed European launch in 2009 on the Nintendo DS.
The game offers players a unique, charming story that follows the life of a young boy on his journey to become a man, along the way meeting various friends and monsters. His adventure spans three generations – beginning as a youngster journeying with his father – to becoming a father himself.
Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride offers mobile gamers a beautiful vast and vibrant world to explore – with even more colourful characters to meet, monsters to recruit and battle, and secret treasures to find.
The game’s simple and intuitive controls are designed to work perfectly with the vertical layout of any modern mobile device, and the position of the movement button can be changed to facilitate both one- and two-handed play.
Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride, like its predecessors, was created by a legendary trio of creative masters, including – creator Yuji Horii, revolutionary Music Composer Koichi Sugiyama and master manga artist Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball).
