New Screens for ‘Dragon Quest VI’

If you’re like me, then one thing you’re really looking forward to this year is Valentine’s Day.  And not because you want a bundle of roses or some candy in a heart-shaped box.  No, you’re hyped because that’s when Nintendo releases the long awaited (and never-before-released in the West) DS remake of Dragon Quest VI.

The new game, subtitled Realms of Revelation, is what you would typically expect from a Dragon Quest game. It will be interesting to see how this game is received in light of last year’s Dragon Quest IX, however.

If you’re in the US (or don’t mind ordering through Gamestop’s US website), you can pre-order the game and get a cute slime plushie.  Considering they didn’t have any pre-order bonus for the last game, this is a nice surprise for fans of the series.  Disappointingly, the Canadian listing doesn’t seem to include the bonus, but you’ll save on shipping.

Either way, you can bask in the glory of the new screenshots Nintendo has revealed, or check out the game’s trailer.  I know the trailer came out before Christmas, but if you’re a true fan, you can never watch a Dragon Quest trailer enough, can you?
