In here, turn left

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?
