    Dragon Quest IX Placed in the Book of Guinness [5/20]

    I've been trying for the longest time to figure out what English to use for that DS feature that the Japanese refer to as "surechigai." I think I'll go with what the folks at Guinness (and probably Square Enix) have decided on: Chance Encounter. The reason Guinness has concerned itself with...

    Along with the July 11 release date, Nintendo sent out the first batch of English Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies screenshots. While story screenshots aren’t in the batch, the item descriptions are flavored with puns like “driller pillar” and extra “u”s. Seems like the...

    Square Enix Announces Dragon Quest IX International Announcement In Japan

    Square Enix usually doesn't notify the local media when a game that's already out in Japan sees release in another country. Of course, Dragon Quest IX is no ordinary game, and so Square Enix was sure to issue a press statement about the game's recent confirmation for overseas release. As...

    The Dragon Quest IX-themed bar “Luda’s” in Roppongi (Tokyo) recently welcomed its first customers, many of whom enjoyed making silly faces at cameras and sexually harassing the barmaids while pretending they were characters in a grind-heavy RPG. Patrons enjoyed linking up for some DQIX...

    Dragon Quest IX Ultimate Hits Gets Special Bonus Item

    Most budget re-releases are just the original version of the game repackaged as ugly as possible in order to shame buyers for not having enough money to buy games full priced. But Dragon Quest IX is no ordinary game, and will thus not be getting the standard treatment for its budget re-release...

    Dragon Quest IX Becomes Best Selling DQ Ever

    Square Enix announced today that domestic shipments for Dragon Quest IX have crossed the 4.15 million mark. An announcement for 4 million would be understandable.

    Perfect Famitsu score for DQ IX

    I have to admit that I don't always agree with Famitsu's reviewers. I can't for the sake of my life figure out why they gave Final Fantasy XII a perfect score for example. They did however also give Vagrant Story which is one of my favourite PS1 games a perfect score, so I choose to be...

    Dragon Quest IX Definitely Coming 11th of July

    Dragon Quest IX has been nothing but a catalogue of errors for Square Enix, as the game was initially planned for release in 2007. Despite this, here we are in mid-2009 and the game still hasn't been released. Most recently, the game was officially penned in for the 28th of March, 2009, after...
