Dragon Quest IX Event Wants to Tag You With a Special Map

Posted by James Newton

Get to Gamestop, get a map

There are just a few more days to go until North American fans can bash slimes all over again in Dragon Quest IX, and within a few weeks GameStops up and down the country will be hosting an event to grant gamers a Special Event Map.

To get involved it's very simple. Head to a participating store on the 31st of July between 1pm and 4pm to take part; just make sure you've unlocked Quester's Rest in Stornway, as you won't be able to receive the map without it.

Don't forget that, if you're in the New York area, you can head over to Nintendo's Dragon Quest IX launch party this Saturday to meet the series' creator and eat some Dragon Quest ice cream. What could be better?

For those of you who don't know, this map is actually a downloadable map and not a physical item. This event is similar to the Pokemon DLC events. Simply bring your game with your DS system and download the map. Just call your local GameStop store to see if they are participating in this event.

Grr, well that sucks. Oh well, I'll live. Chances are I wouldn't play the game enough to make use of it (really, I honestly would've preferred a physical map :()

Good promotion but I'm not going to buy anything on a Gamestop. After 5 times in a row paying for pre-ordering a game and not received the item I decided stop buying there. Also they are usually rude, unfriendly and their knowledge about videogames is very limited. That just my personal opinion, have fun if you go to the event!
