The Story and Its Hero
The quaint kingdom of Aliahan, home of the great hero Ortega and you, his child and the story’s protagonist. On your sixteenth birthday, you receive an order from the king: to do what your late father could not and defeat the Archfiend Baramos. Thus begins your journey to save the world. What surprises does fate have in store for you?

The Protagonist (Voiced by Toby Laurence/Jenna Sharpe)
You are the child of Ortega, Aliahan’s celebrated hero. On the morning of your sixteenth birthday, you set out on the same fateful path as your father once did to defeat the Archfiend

A World of Adventure
On your journey, you and your allies will explore all corners of a vast world. What mysteries await in the towns, castles, caves, and towers they will discover? Perhaps the locals can provide a clue or two on how to solve some of the world’s problems.

Spells and Abilities Pave the Way to Victory
When exploring the world and its dungeons, monsters are never far away. Tense, turn-based battles proceed in classic Dragon Quest fashion, with you dishing out the orders to your party members. Attack with your trusty weapons, or employ a multitude of spells and abilities, each with their own unique effects, to take down foes in style. Defeating monsters rewards you with experience points which level up your party, and gold coins which allow you to purchase more powerful equipment.

Dragon Quest III: HD-2D Remake is scheduled to launch on November 14, 2024 for PS5, Xbox Series, Switch, and PC. The Steam Version is launching on November 15, 2024.
