Google's April Fool's 8-bit map was filled with many Dragon Quest references and images. Square Enix said today it provided the assets for the project.

"It was a collaborative effort between Square Enix and Google," a U.S. representative told Game Informer. "Google came up with the idea, then we provided the assets and helped them to create the map."

Unfortunately, the publisher was unable to provide more detail, as the company's Japan headquarters did all the legwork.

Square Enix previously partnered with Google last year to bring Mini Ninjas to the Chrome browser.
