New Dragon Quest DS in Feb

The Hand of the Heavenly Bride out next month

Square Enix has dated DS Dragon Quest entry The Hand of the Heavenly Bride for a February 20 release in Europe.

The second instalment in the 'Zenithia' Trilogy of games is a remake of classic Dragon Quest V, which is considered as one of the best instalments ever in the series, claims Squeenix.

The story follows three generations of the same family, as the main protagonist ages from childhood to a young man and embarks on an adventure to mark "the biggest choice he will have to make in his entire life" (Daddy or chips?)

"We are delighted to be bringing another classic Dragon Quest adventure to the Nintendo DS in Europe and the PAL territories," said Square Enix boss John Yamamoto.

"With Dragon Quest: The Hand of the Heavenly Bride, we hope game players of all ages will enjoy following our hero through his exciting lifetime, full of great adventures and surprises."
