Not only does the 3DS version of Dragon Quest VIII include new playable party members, but there will also be a new dungeon for players to explore, which will appear as a small cave at a certain point of the game.
Square Enix has released a handful of shots of the location as well as the dungeon boss - Jahagaros. Not much is known about this demon, as his existence is shrouded in mystery.
Check out the screenshots in the gallery below, and you can find more screens here. Dragon Quest VIII will release on Nintendo 3DS on August 27 in Japan.
The gallery below are screenshots of the new party members, Red and Morrie, in action. These were released a few weeks back but never got a proper post on the site.
