Starry Skies Shine in New Dragon Quest IX Trailer

The DS game lineup has been very weak so far this year, but soon that’s about to change with one of the biggest releases of the entire year: Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies. DQIX has been a smashing success in Japan, and it was designed to be more Western-friendly, so it should perform much better in North America than previous installments. I do worry some about the multiplayer focus, but as long as the game doesn’t feel incomplete when played solo I’ll be a happy camper.

Dragon Quest IX ships on July 11th. Check out the new trailer right here.
