Square Enix announced today that its PlayStation 2 Dragon Quest VIII spin-off, Dragon Quest: Shounen Yangus to Fushigi no Dungeon, will be released in Japan on April 20. The game will be priced at 7,140 yen ($62). The date may look familiar to Square Enix fans--it's the same day that Final Fantasy XI's next expansion disc, Treasures of Aht Urhgan, hits stores.
Dragon Quest: Shounen Yangus to Fushigi no Dungeon follows DQVIII's Yangus through his childhood. Like previous releases in the Fushigi no Dungeon series, the game will feature randomly generated dungeon maps. Shounen Yangus to Fushigi no Dungeon has cartoonish 3D graphics, though it apparently uses a different graphics engine than Dragon Quest VIII. Trailers and screenshots can be checked out at the game's official site.
