Even as turn-based RPGs, Dragon Quest I, Dragon Quest II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line, and Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation didn’t quite work on mobile phones without a true controller, but they feel right at home on the Nintendo Switch to go as a perfect complement to the modern Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition.
The Dragon Quest 1-3 Collection is a solid, if bare-bones, port of the JRPGs that started it all. The games are nostalgic trips down memory lane mixed with some frustrating relics of video games of yore. If you've ever wanted to experience where it all began, this is the best way to do it. Since this collection was released at the same time as Dragon Quest XI S, it's tough to recommend it over the new hotness. Sometimes, though, you just want to sit down and slip into a comfortable classic, and Dragon Quest is made for that.
Dragon Quest and its next two sequels, Dragon Quest II and III, are historic JRPGs, with a special place in the hearts of many of we NES veterans. A re-release of these three classics coincides with a release of the newest entry in the series and capitalizes on nostalgia that the games engender. By and large, the re-release does the series justice, and gives an opportunity for a new generation to enjoy experiences from the early days of video gaming – for better or for worse.
