Dragon Quest VI Realms of Revelation
Starting today, Dragon Quest VI Realms of Revelation joins its fellow Dragon Quest brethren on the Google Play Store and iOS. The game was originally released in 1995 on the SNES by Enix (before they merged with Squaresoft) and re-released on the Nintendo DS in 2007.

Dragon Quest VI is the final chapter in the Zenithian trilogy that started in Dragon Quest IV and continued through Dragon Quest V. With this release, the entire trilogy is now available on mobile devices.

The game is played in portrait mode and retains most of its graphic styling from its prior releases. That means it’ll be great for those who enjoy retro gaming since this is actually a retro game. Battles will be turn-based and first person which is something you don’t see everyday. Characters get more powerful through the use of classes which you can choose and switch between at the Alltrades Abbey location in game. It does seem to take more from the DS remake than the original SNES remake.

Unlike later version of Dragon Quest, catching monsters isn’t a big part of the story but it is there nevertheless. The famed casino also makes a return along with a few mini-games so players can take a break from the story if needed. The game also includes a quick save function so players can save anytime and return to what they were doing later.

Dragon Quest VI Realms of Revelation
You can pick up the game in the Google Play Store today for $14.99. It seems expensive but the Nintendo DS remake still goes for $49.99 on Amazon which makes this version feel much more reasonably priced by comparison.
