Dragon Warrior Nintendo Power Scans
I will never forget receiving my free copy of Dragon Warrior in the mail from Nintendo Power as part of a promotion. From that point on, I was totally hooked on RPGs. I'm reliving some nostalgia with these Dragon Warrior Nintendo Power Scans, from Issue #8 in 1989 (the year North America received Dragon Warrior)
Dragon Warrior (Dragon Quest in Japan, launched in 1986 and features sprites that always face forward, a technique I used in Star Quest) boasts character design from the legendary Akira Toryama of Dragon Ball Z and Chrono Trigger fame. The game was so popular that release dates would disrupt Japanese society in the 90s.
Dragon Quest started one of the best gaming franchises around, and it's still going strong. Even some spin offs are solid games. Dragon Quest 7, 8, and 9 remain some of the best RPGs on their respective systems.
