Dragon Warrior III is the third game in the long running Dragon Quest series (Formerly known as “Dragon Warrior” in North America, before Dragon Quest VIII released in 2004). III is one considered to be one of the best in the original NES series (At least in Japan lol, IV is considered to be the best instead in NA), especially because for greatly expanding upon Dragon Warrior I and II.
Dragon Warrior III adds a class system, in which each character has a certain class. While the hero always keeps the Hero class, the other characters can choose among the following: Soldier/Warrior, Fighter, Pilgrim/Cleric, Wizard/Mage, Merchant/Dealer, Goof-off/Jester, and Thief. The choice of class greatly affects the character’s stats and spells he or she can learn.
Furthermore, upon reaching level 20, a character may change classes at Alltrades Abbey. Another innovation is an arena where the player can place bets on the outcome of monster battles. Dragon Quest III features a much larger world than its predecessors, as well as a much larger array of items, equipment, magic, and enemies. It was intended to have even more features, including a small medal system, but these additional features were cut from the original release to save space.
Even thought III sets in the same “Erdrick Trilogy” with I and II, there is no signs of the legendary hero Erdrick at all! Odd… Or maybe Erdrick is hidden in the game? But in III, it seems you are the descendant of the legendary hero named Ortega. In fact, you’re his very own son/daughter! (Yes, you can choose gender in this game) Instead of Alefgard and Torland, now you’re adventuring in a new world that has been taken by the Archfiend Baramos! Defeat the evil forces and solve the mystery of Erdrick’s dissappearence in one of the BEST RPG on the Nintendo Entertainment System!!
Yep, that’s me. This was back when I first started hacking and I thought that DQ3 would be reasonably easy, sort of. Well, the weird pointer things kinda annoyed me, and real-life issues blablabla no one cares. Anyways, most of the menus are done.
