The new mobile gacha RPG Dragon Quest Champions, based on the legendary franchise of the same name, has finally started pre-registration in Japan after being announced earlier this year. Dragon Quest Champions hopes to release this year, at least in Japan, and the game’s early pre-registration period instills a lot of optimism that it will release rapidly.

If you haven’t heard of it, Dragon Quest is a legendary JRPG series that has been around since the early 1990s and is widely considered one of the best of all time. This series features both conventional gameplay and a fantastical setting, but the graphical design, created by Dragon Ball Z great Akira Toriyama, is truly one of a kind.
Champions is largely its own thing and doesn’t fit anywhere in this canon. This story, like the Builders spinoffs and many other entries, is unrelated to the primary plot and allows you to create a character who goes on a whole new journey packed with wonderful characters and beautiful locations.
When it comes to battle, this is as typical as it gets. To a large extent, Dragon Quest adheres to the design philosophy of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” rarely improving upon the tried-and-true mechanics of turn-based JRPGs of yore. And Champions intends to achieve the same by employing a 3D adversary encounter screen that features fully animated special abilities from your party members.
countless items, spells, and cosmetics, as well as countless additional references to the canonical entries, are included. It’s not out of the question that we’ll see some of the video game characters themselves at some point in the future.
If you’re a lover of the Dragon Quest series, this is a great way to enjoy the games on the road. Within Japan, you can pre-register at one of the two links given below.
