The mobile port of classic PS2 JRPG Dragon Quest VIII has gone on sale on the Japanese App Store for ¥2,800.

We're not holding our breath for a Western release here at Pocket Gamer's enchanted village. If Square Enix does end up releasing the game over here, though, you can expect to pay £19.49 / $27.99 for the privilege.

That's a far amount of money to be asking for a port of a game that's nearly ten years old, but it fits in with the rest of Square Enix's mobile pricing quite neatly.

We will, of course, let you know if we hear anything about Dragon Quest VIII hitting App Stores in the West.
