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 “My Room” 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—This post initially misnamed Dragon Quest Walk as Dragon Walk. We regret the error.
