Original story follows…


Coming at you all the way from 1992, Square Enix is bringing Dragon Quest V to iOS tonight.

This time you'll be following a boy as he is born, grows up, and eventually continues his father's quest to find the Legendary Hero.

One of the features that makes Dragon Quest V stand out is its monster befriending system. Rather than just fight enemies you can become pals and learn new spells and abilities.

It's a concept that has since been continued in Pokémon, Digimon, and all the rest of the monster-catching stories.

It's also credited as being among the first games to have a "playable pregnancy."

Other than that, it's an epic quest that spans 30 years, so there's plenty to do and take in. Expect turn-based battling, lots of character to meet, and plenty of items and armour to collect and upgrade.

You should be able to purchase Dragon Quest V for £10.99 / $14.99 when it hits the UK and US App Stores at midnight.
