Dragon Quest XI Includes Iconic Dragon Quest VIII Gear

Dragon Quest VIII is one of the most beloved games in the series. Personal favorites may differ among fans, but the game is held in high-regard nonetheless. In recognition of this, Square Enix announced today that all players of Dragon Quest XI will have their very own piece of Dragon Quest VIII to enjoy as soon as they start their adventure.

Upon starting up the game, players will find the Dragon Quest VIII hero’s “Trodain Bandana” and “Trodain Togs” in their inventory. Also included is a recipe book called “Trodain’s Top Trends.” This gear automatically provides a defensive boost to the wearer, and the recipe book is used to upgrade the outfit in the game’s later stages.

Dragon Quest XI launches for PC and PlayStation 4 on September 4. The Switch version is currently scheduled to launch sometime in 2019.
