It's hard to believe, but the Dragon Quest games have already been around for thirty years, and the traditional JRPG series has long been a popular mainstay of the genre. Though the western release of the latest game in the series - Dragon Quest X – is still uncertain, we're set to get the 3DS remakes of Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past and Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King this year, with the former arriving first.
Naturally, Dragon Quest is a much bigger deal in Japan than it is in the west, and Square Enix just revealed part of its plans for the series' anniversary celebration. The "Dragon Quest Museum" will be taking place from 24th July to 11th September of this year, and it'll feature elements from every game in the series up to Dragon Quest X. Attendees will be able to buy exclusive goods from a bazaar, check out a Monster Park, and marvel at cool props like a recreation of Ertrick's armor that's been crafted by Japanese swordsmiths.
