It is as I said in the headline above. News of the event recently came from a special Dragon Quest "party", the same party used two years ago to announce DQXI's DS appearance. While I should have been keeping a close eye on this, Brawl (and it's well timed lag this evening 8D) got the better of me. You can read up on the events however at the following page:

http://gigazine.net/index.php?/news/comments/20081210_dragonquest/

Discussions and meltdowns (if you're the type to do so) begin now.

Major Edit - I fail at roman numerals. Sleepy eyes strike again! XD

It's Dragon Quest 9, not 11 that has a date.

I can already smell the rage of fanboys 8D

In other news, this is just great for me :D

My life is currently bears and Jojos and everything is great.

I'm sure this just made a lot of DQ fans either really happy or upset. 

Either way, more power to Ninty!   8D

Sorry if I stole any thunder there Ben, it was just too damn legendary for me not to post it ASAP. Also, since I'm actually curious about the series and need an RPG or two, this will definitely be a must try for me. 8)

Like it? It's the Dragon Quest IX Edition "Slime" DSi which goes on sale launch day for DQIX. The black one would be perfect for me if the slime was it's traditional blue color.

I do like that black slime one. Makes the system look fanboyishly classy. Could have done without the logo but eh...

Are the internet tears bitter at this announcement? Because I saw this as inevitable.

I don't think I need to tell you about what's going on at the forum I got this info from... 8D

And that's only from the night folk. XD

I too saw it as an inevitability, but do the fanboys? Nope as usual.

More photos from the event:





And someone with 1337 photoshop skills needs to make it so a Captain Planet Wii bursts out of the wall behind the guys in this pic, just for impact:


Agreed? XD

Damnit, I was about to post that last highly enjoyable pic XD

Also, it's missing one person, so no Captain Planet D:

I wonder what they'll do about DQX. I mean, it's the tenth installment of one of Japan's best selling franchises (in Japan hurr).

Not perfect, but done:



Also, ya gotta love people trying to rationalize it all out saying that it's not gonna happen in the Wii's lifetime, but rather, the Wii HD. XD

It's just too early to be talking about next generation, even if I'm a bit curious about it myself.
