Dragon Quest of the Stars – New mobile RPG from Square Enix begins Closed Beta next month

4 years after the Japanese launch in 2015, developer Square Enix announced today that it is bringing its popular mobile RPG Dragon Quest of the Stars to the western market in early 2020. The game takes players on an intergalactic journey to prevent the destruction of entire planets and worlds, with players able to create their own custom character, designed by the illustrious manga artist Akira Toriyama, and two companions to embark on this great adventure with in solo mode. Closed Beta testing begins on Android come 30 October!

Note: Closed Beta registration is for “select regions” only, but Square Enix did not specify which countries. I am guessing North America and Canada are included.

Players can also participate in multiplayer modes with up to three other players. Dragon Quest of the Stars also features themed-stickers designed by the popular illustrator and emoji creator, Kanahei, which can be used in multiplayer mode for players to communicate with each other. In Dragon Quest of the Stars, players battle against classic Dragon Quest series monsters by using touch controls optimized for mobile to strategically activate skills.

Powerful attack combos are possible through strategic management of the skill gauge. Additionally, before heading into battle, players can select up to four items and one food item to give a competitive edge or restore HP during combat. Dragon Quest of the Stars will be available as a free downloadable app with in-app purchases on iOS and Android devices in early 2020. Remember to register for the Closed Beta test on Android devices!
