The 3DS port for the PS2 RPG classic is less than a month away and today, Square Enix presents two new trailers for the port's two exclusive playable characters Morrie and Red. Morrie and Red were in the original game; the player was introduced to Morrie when they came across the optional Monster Arena and Red wove into the game's plot during one dungeon before she took off and was never seen again.
In these trailers we see that Morrie can use fisticuffs, boomerangs, and clubs for weapons. His fourth skill set, Passion, allows him to call monsters for special attacks unlike the Call Monster ability by the Hero which switches the party out for your Monster Arena team. Red on the other hand uses fisticuffs, fans, and whips. Her fourth skill set Roguery allows her to summon help from her pirate crew to assault enemies.
Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King 3DS arrives on January 20, 2017.
