Dragon Quest IX English Trailer Arrives

Square-Enix was nice enough to release an English trailer for the latest (and greatest?) in their Dragon Quest franchise, which arrives in North America on July 11, 2010, for the Nintendo DS. This trailer briefly shows off the visuals of the game, including some animated cut scenes, as well as some shots of character customization options, multiplayer elements and, of course, battle.

Hey, I might actually blow the dust off my DS for this one. I absolutely loved Dragon Quest VIII, the last full-fledged entry in the series, which was released for the PS2. In the back of my mind I hoped that the next iteration would make it to a current gen console, like the PS3, or even the Wii. But, the DS seems to be handling what Square-Enix throws its way pretty well, and I won’t hold that against the title, since I’m a huge fan. July is going to be a busy month for portable RPG fans! Click through to check out the trailer.
