Celebrate Dragon Quest VI's North American Launch with a Video

Posted by James Newton

Meet the cast

After a wait that threatened never to end, Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation reaches the Western world today on Nintendo's DS. Square Enix and Nintendo have put together a trailer to introduce you to some of the unfamiliar characters you'll meet on your journey through the latest epic RPG.

The game was originally released on Super NES in Japan only, so today marks the first time an official translation of the game has been released outside of the Land of the Rising Sun: cause for celebration indeed.

Our review is in the works and will be available shortly. There's currently no official word on a European release date for the game, but we'll keep you updated.

@Portista: the review will go live when (a) the reviewer is done with the review, and if that happens too quickly, (b) when the embargo is lifted (because there usually is one on big-name releases).

also, apparently you didn't get the point the last time I linked you to something you could easily have googled yourself -- please google it yourself.

I really don't like these characters. :/ The battles look fun though. I'll probably pass on this for now and wait for a bargain price.

If it wasn't on Dragon Quest-related merchandise, I really wouldn't want to know what Valenslime is.

@Stuffy: Yeah, but Nintendo is publishing this one. I'm sure there'll at least be some Amazon deals on it like there were for DQIX.

I think the game is REALLY coming out tomorrow (Tuesday)... Cause that's Tuesdays are the days when video games come out during the weekday unless it's a 'major' game like GTA :/

I really want my copy with that Slime plush...

Awww, Mr. & Mrs. Slime (assuming they're married, can't see a ring) are so cute together. Talk about a power couple! But, Slime love... they say love is messy, but THAT really must be!

Kind of odd that this game wasn't released yesterday considering that Nintendo is publishing this game. That would have ensured that the game would be here in time for "Valenslime's Day". Guess I will have to wait until tomorrow to play it.:(

It's because DQIX was more of a 'personalized' game than this title. DQIX had a huge focus on multiplayer and customizing. I wish they had taken the multiplayer online... People complained about not having characters with a backstory- but all YOU need to do is have an imagination and create a story for your characters. That's what I'm doing. Pretty fun.

Yeah I'll get this game, if only because the characters look way more awesome than in DQ IX (the 3D characters just really didn't agree w/ me, 2D chars ftw!) plus it seems like it "may" have a better story than DQ IXs... (It seemed really childish to me). Although the DQ series are really basic RPGs anyway, maybe a bit too basic, even for me & my love of easy to understand & play RPGs. I'll give it a go if it comes to PAL.

I loved Hand of the Heavenly Bride, which this one seems to be more similar to than IX. However, are there random battles? As far as I'm concerned the only games that can cope with random battling are the various Golden Suns. I find the rest too frustrating...
