Princess Quest (プリンセスクエスト?, Purinsesu Kuesuto) is a Japanese video game published in 1998 for the Sega Saturn system, illustrated by Sugiyama Genshō.[citation needed] It was based on a 1996 audio drama of the same name.[citation needed] The game was developed by AIC and Increment P Corp.[citation needed] It was subsequently ported to PC under the title Princess Quest R (プリンセスクエストR?, Purinsesu Kuesuto R).

While the gameplay can be described as a classic turn-based role-playing video game, the main focus of the game is on interacting with the non-player characters and discovering what they are up to. The story is set in the Kingdom of Dilma (ディルマ国?), with a cast of royalty who engage in all sorts of strange antics, and is filled with silly humor, which includes most of the characters being named after various kinds of food, and transgender humor in the style of Ranma ½.[citation needed]

Princess Quest features several short anime video clips, as well as spoken dialog (in Japanese) throughout the game.

Story[edit]

Five princesses from surrounding kingdoms are visiting Granmalnie Castle (グランマルニエ城?), but young Prince Tapioca isn't showing much interest. Meanwhile, someone makes off with a valuable item. Queen Madeleine hires a young swordsman named Willow to investigate the theft. Willow is joined by Pal (パル?), a magical creature who transforms Willow into a girl, named Will. Using this disguise, Willow tries to gain the trust of the princesses, in hopes of determining who is responsible for the theft.[1]
