Dragon Quest Wars is a strategy game based off the Dragon Quest franchise. Players pick four monsters and face off against either the CPU or another player locally or over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Up to four players can link up locally or throughout Japan.


Dragon Quest Wars is designed with simple rules so anyone can play the game. Surprisingly, this game is being handled by the strategy wizards at Intelligent Systems. The Nintendo owned studio is also known for developing Fire Emblem, and Advance Wars.


Dragon Quest Wars is scheduled to come out in the middle of next month for 500 DSiWare Points ($5). Currently, this game is only for Japan. However, Dragon Quest Wars was trademarked here and Nintendo has heavy involvement in the project chances so chances are very good that we’ll be battling healslimes and brownies overseas.

    Wow Intelligent Systems and Dragon Queat is this a dream! talk about a game I would buy even if it cost 100000 points :)

    That looks fantastic. IntSys rocks, and so did the previous DQ spinoffs.

    Happy day.

    Just when I’d thought I’d try to avoid the DSi and just stick with my DS Lite… a Dragon Quest game appears, developed by Intelligent Systems of all people! Such a tempting calling…

    On another aside, I hope this new collaboration between the two leads to something like a Paper Dragon Quest game someday.

    It’s weird, I love IntSys and I adore DQ… but I’m not really feeling the game. Reminds me of Fire Emblem’s (limited) multiplayer mode, and the 3D’s kinda ugly. :/

      I hope its not online only.

    interesting. I’ve been entertaining the idea of picking up a DSi. This game, if localized, may be just what gets me to take the plunge.
