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.

Unfortunately, as much as the modernization improves the original game it still feels primitive compared to current titles. Fans of Dragon Quest who are feeling nostalgic for the original title should check this out as this is the best way to experience it and it isn’t a huge time sink. Outside of nostalgia or historical curiosity about early JRPGs, Dragon Quest is a hard sell. Because of nostalgia, binge playing it in a single sitting for the review was enjoyable but this title shows its age and the limitations of the time too much to engage newcomers.

The bottom line is that even with these issues, Dragon Quest is still worth the $5 you'll spend on it. It's legendary for a good reason, and playing through it is cozily nostalgic, even if you didn't play the original back in 1986. It's just frustrating that the team behind the Switch version didn't lower the barrier of entry.
