If you can look past some of its flaws, you’ll find a rewarding experience that enables you to experiment with some interesting gameplay systems. You will have to grind, you could get frustrated, and you may need to consult a walkthrough, but traditional JRPG fans will find an enjoyable adventure that hides a surprising amount of content. Yes, Dragon Quest III on Switch may be ugly, but if that’s the worst sin it commits, don’t let that stop you from trying out this classic of yore.

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.

In an age where games are often ported, upgraded, or remade after just a few years, it's refreshing to see a revamp of a truly old game that needed the facelift. Dragon Quest 3 first released over 30 years ago and despite the fact that it certainly shows its age with some of its stiffer designs and outdated principles, it remains a testament to an era of timeless ideas and forward-thinking creativity.
