Dreamy Dragon Quest VI Screens

By Spencer . October 20, 2009 . 11:50am

This Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie update has plenty of towns, a few dungeons, and an underwater area. Just like the original game, you travel through the real world, dream world, and dive into the ocean with a ship encased by a bubble.


Like talking to monsters? Artepiazza, the developer of the Dragon Quest IV and V remakes, are incorporating the party talk system into Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie. So you can have chats with hero slimes and allies like Barbara, the game’s black mage.

      maybe that’s the animation for a attack that is dodged? If not then it’s a screen shot of some cutscene because DQ is a traditional RPG through and through.

    • Good question. I think I’ve seen that screen from a trailer before, but it’s not representative of a new battle system or anything like that.

      DQ6 DS uses the same tried and true text heavy, monsters in front of you, interface as the other DS remakes.

    • If I remember correctly, the original DQ6 used a similar “fake” battle scene to show off the fight between Terry and the Battle Rex (or whatever the monster was called).

    lovely as always. SE better release this here, even if they do a limited print run like with V.

      It will definitely be released outside of Japan. They announced Dragon Quest IV, V, and VI at the same time when they announced them for America and Europe.

  • I recently played V, my first entry into the series, and I loved it. I picked up IV, but don’t have a chance to play atm. Will of course get this if it hits here. I wonder if they will ever change the style in the future?

    • Soma

      To be honest, I’m a little surprised that V was your first DQ game, but I remember you telling me that.
      You should borrow the PS2 one from JC sometime. =3

    • Welcome to the DQ fanbase! I’m so happy they’ve been re-released and pushed into the US market. I feel like there are lots of people out there who would love the series if they could give it a chance (being that JRPG’s aren’t as niche as they were when we were all kids playing them).

      @Somato: I never got to play the PS2 version of DQV but heard it was really good. Do you have an opinion on it?

  • Dragon quest 5 was just perfect, epic and the best, much more than 4, im hoping good thing from the sixth entry

  • Soma

    It looks so good.
    Oh, man. These screens totally reminded me of why I love the DQ series so much.
    Remember when the first one was released as Dragon Warrior in North America?
    I literally played that game until I was sick one day. XD

    Dragon Quest 3 Remix for Super Famicom was my first DQ game.

    • Joanna

      me too, except I played the remake for the GBC.

      • cowcow

        Yeah I got that later but I didnt like it. The Super Famicom one had amazing animation and graphics for its time
