NEO's got Dragon Quest covered

Square Enix's Dragon Quest: The Journey of the Cursed King makes the cover of UK's only specialist Asian pop culture magazine

23/03/06 - Uncooked Media unleashes an exclusive cover and interview feature on Square Enix's Dragon Quest: The Journey of the Cursed King in NEO 018 on March 30th.

As the biggest selling PlayStation2 game in Japan is set for a UK launch on April 13th, NEO interviews Yuji Horii and other members of the creative team behind the multi-million selling franchise. Also, the UK release of Dragon Quest: Journey of the Cursed King is reviewed in the same issue, walking away with the coveted NEO Gold Award, notching up an impressive five stars out of five.

Stu Taylor, Group Editor, Uncooked Media said:

"NEO and Uncooked Media first championed this eighth version of the superb Dragon Quest franchise a year ago, with a feature on the original Japanese release. Since then, readers of NEO have been waiting impatiently for the retooled European version, Journey of the Cursed King - now that NEO has been able to review the game, it's great to say that the wait has been well worth it."

As well as providing an unrivalled mix of features, news, reviews and previews from the world of Japanese anime, manga and Asian cult cinema, NEO provides exclusive content on some of the biggest names in Japanese videogames every four weeks. Past editions have featured exclusive interviews with the creatives behind the phenomenal FromSoftware Armored Core franchise, SEGA's Chromehounds, Katamari Damacy's Keita Takahashi and issue 19 (on sale April 27th) will feature Taito's LostMagic, to be released in the UK by Ubisoft on Nintendo DS.

Issue 18 of NEO goes on sale Thursday, 30th March, with a coverprice of £3.70.
