Dragon Quest IX Coming to North America This Summer

Dragon Quest IX, the incredibly popular Nintendo DS title, is coming to North America after selling 4 million units in Japan.

Nintendo announced the upcoming release of the RPG title during their Summit event in San Francisco earlier this week. The title was developed by Level-5 and was published in Japan by Square Enix. It will be published by Nintendo in the U.S., the result of a “unique” agreement between the two companies.

The game offers complete customization of characters and party members, turn-based combat, alchemy and many side-quests. Dragon Quest IX received a 40/40 from Famitsu.

It will be released this summer, though a specific release date has not yet been announced.
