New DQIX Details Revealed
01.06.09 - 4:58 PM

Square Enix has revealed some new information regarding its highly anticipated DS title Dragon Quest IX. Not unlike previous series installments, the Level 5-developed title will feature a variety of optional quests. One NPC might ask for a simple errand, while another might ask the player to find a certain piece of treasure or dispose of a particular monster. Players are free to take on multiple quests simultaneously. Moreover, the decision when to complete a questis entirely up to the player.

One NPC set to play an important role in Dragon Quest IX's storyline is a fairy by the name of Sandy. Despite being a fairy, she looks and talks like a "Shibuya gal."

In Dragon Quest IX's world, a World Tree symbolizing the world of angels does exist. Collecting Star Aura (which is obtained through the people's feeling of gratitude) will let the Fruits of the Goddess ripen on the World Tree. Those fruits are required to make the Heaven's Arc appear. The Arc will open up the path to the Land of God.

Dragon Quest IX will be available in Japan on March 28th for 5,980 yen ($64.57 USD).
