Nintendo has announced that Dragon King VIII: Journey of the Cursed King will be released on 3DS in North America and Europe on January 20, 2017.

The 3DS game is a remake of the original RPG, which was released on PlayStation 2 in 2005 to critical acclaim. The game’s story centers around a quest to save a kingdom from Dhoulmagus, a jester who has used the King’s scepter to seize power and turn the King into a troll.

Returning players can expect to see new story content providing more back story about the player’s Hero and the villain Dhoulmagus, as well as new dungeons and a new alternative ending. It also features two new playable characters and a number of new side quests.

A number of new features are also included in this version, such as a new Quick-Save function, the ability to increase the speed of battles, and the option to take photos, customize them, and share them via StreetPass or off of your SD card.
