Dragon Quest IX Gets Release Date
Amazing to think Dragon Quest IX, the latest DS entry in the storied franchise, has been out in Japan for 14 months now without having a U.S. release date.
Worry no more, though. In the doldrums of summer, a new Dragon Quest will appear! The same one Japan was absolutely obsessed with. And we shall play it, and it will be good!
Jokes aside, it looks like a fantastic piece of video game. Local four player co-op, dozens of hours of gameplay, and localized by Nintendo, so everything will be kid friendly and saccarine sweet. I’m not exactly the most excited person to be posting about this, but you know, it might be fun. Or it might be another case of Japanese mass hysteria over a strange, unfathomable video game phenomenon. The only DQ game I’ve ever really enjoyed was V, which was suitably epic and entertaining.
Of course, your mileage may vary.
