All The Hype: Dragon Quest IX Seven Minute TrailerIf this doesn't get your blood flowing, there might be something wrong with you...06.22.09 - 7:36 PM
...or maybe you're just not Japanese.
That wasn't meant to be racist. All I'm sayin' is, the Dragon Quest series has historically performed less impressively in North America than it has in Japan. But in Japan, it's one of the biggest, best-selling franchises out there. People take off work and school to get games in this series on release day. It's like a holiday all its own.
Dragon Quest IX: Protectors of the Starry Sky will be released in Japan on July 11th, 2009. No news on the North American release date yet.
And um...if you haven't seen this trailer yet, you haven't been paying attention. But we thought we'd put it here as well, since it is a pretty big deal. Enjoy!
