New Dragon Quest VIII Screenshots and Live Stream announcement

To celebrate the release of Dragon Quest VIII for 3DS today in Japan, Square Enix is having two live streams this weekend.

The first one will take place tomorrow, August 28th, at 6PM JST, and is actually a concert, where the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra will perform music from the game. Unfortunately, this stream is region-locked and you have to pay 1,500 yen to watch it. It will be streamed on NicoNico.

The second live stream is thankfully not region-locked and will focus on gameplay from Dragon Quest VIII, taking place on Saturday, August 29th, at 5PM JST. Like the one before, it will also be streamed on NicoNico.

Square Enix has also released some new screenshots of the game, which you can view below:
