In 2019, Square Enix announced their plans to launch their free-to-play game Dragon Quest of The Stars, worldwide. Dragon Quest of The Stars is a free-to-play role-playing game based in the Dragon Quest universe. The game had released in Japan in 2015 for iOS as well as Android.
There’s a wide variety of character customization options, from gender to hairstyle and a wide variety of armor and weapons. You’ll team up with up to three other actual players and head out on quests together. These play like a traditional Dragon Quest, with you all battling monsters. The game features a turn-based battle system with skill gauges.
The game is currently available for download now on iOS and Android. The servers will be going live at 2:00 UTC, February 25th. Check out the official English website for it here.
Dragon Quest of The Stars will include an optional paid monthly subscription called the Star Pass. The pass includes various in-game items like a Star Pass Lucky Chest Draw, stamina refills, luck buffs, etc. Furthermore auto-battle and turbo mode is locked behind this paid monthly subscription which will cost $8.99. Finally, subscribers get exclusive in-app purchases. They are also able to purchase certain items multiple times. as opposed to non-subscribers who can purchase them only once. Additionally, there are other in-app purchases like different kinds of gems. In conclusion, the game is quite heavily pay-to-play.
Square Enix took four years to release the game globally. Since the app store already has plenty of casual RPGs and idle clickers, so it will be interesting to see how Dragon Quest of the Stars captures an audience.
The game will need atleast 1 GB of RAM and Android 4.1 and above versions on android to play. Likewise, for iOS, it needs at least iPhone 6, a fourth-generation iPad, or iPad Mini 2.
