Dragon Quest, previously known as Dragon Warrior, is the latest installment in the most popular Japanese RPG ever, now on PS2 for the first time!

Now you must set forth on an epic journey to save the king and your country, and lift the curse of the evil jester. Take up your sword and explore a seemingly limitless world - your Dragon Quest has begun!
