Blackscreen / Crash when playing Dragon Quest VIII

I have been having a consistent crash on Dragon Quest VIII at the exact same spot multiple times now. It is right at the very first attack of the very first three slimes. I can select the Hero and Yangus to attack, but as soon as either the slimes or the party jumps to the enemy, my entire screen blacks out briefly and Citra does not respond. The crash has happened at the exact same spot multiple times, and has drove me to try posting this. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.

Update. After combing the forums for about 40 minutes longer I noticed a lot of issues seemed to be caused by outdated graphics drivers.

I updated my drivers am happy to report that now the game seems to function perfectly.
