Sad news from the latest Nintendo Direct, folks. Dragon Quest VIII has been delayed to 2017 on Nintendo 3DS.

The remake, titled Dragon Quest 8: Journey of the Cursed King, was originally scheduled to launch this year, but has been pushed into next. It's not clear exactly when though - hopefully sooner rather than later.

If you're hankering for some more Dragon Quest, you can console yourself with Dragon Quest 7, which is due to launch on 3DS this month.

Alternatively, you could also play pretty much all of them on your mobile. Just saying.
