Today, Square Enix announced Dragon Quest Walk, an augmented-reality game based on Dragon Quest that encourages players to get out and about. The Pokémon Go comparisons are inevitable.

In Dragon Quest Walk, you walk through an in-game field, which is filled with real-world Japanese landmarks like Tokyo Tower, and battle monsters.

There is also customized ‚ÄúMy Room‚ÄĚ function that allows players to decorate their in-game dwellings.

Dragon Quest Walk is going into beta in Japan. No word yet about its official release or whether the game will be out internationally.

Update 11:44am‚ÄĒThis post initially misnamed Dragon Quest Walk¬†as¬†Dragon Walk. We regret the error.
