The King Slime awaits you

It's just one week until gamers in North America can get their hands on another slice of Japanese RPG action, with the long-awaited release of Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation on Nintendo DS.

Previously only available in Japan, the game is making its Western debut in North America on Monday February 14th, and Nintendo has released a new trailer to get you in the mood. While the game's graphics belie its Super NES origins, and it likely won't entice new gamers in the same way as Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies, it's already sold over 1.2 million copies in Japan alone. Whether it can repeat this success in North America remains to be seen, but stay tuned for our review coming shortly.
