on July 24, 2013 11:21 AM

Today the Japanese servers of Dragon Quest X are going to be updated with a large content patch numbered 1.5, and Square Enix sent in a e few screenshots to introduce it, including the appearance of Meena (Minea in Japanese and Nara in the horrible original localization for the NES), that returns from Dragon Quest IV. Interestingly enough the press release also names her sister Maya, even if it’s not specified whether she’ll make a comeback as well or not, and she doesn’t appear in the pictures.

We also get a glimpse about a new questline started with today’s patch, named “Child of the Devil King”, that will continue in the following weeks. The questline will focus on the Eltona continent.

Finally we learn that an “anniversary summer event” will start on July the 27th, with the opening of a new beach resort on the Uena islands, and the implementation of a batch of swimsuits.
