Time ebbs and flows in Dragon Quest IX: Defenders of the Starry Sky. Like the recent DS remakes Dragon Quest IX will adopt the time cycle system. As you wander around the overworld the sun rises and sets which changes the look of the world. But, this is more than a cosmetic effect.

 

Dragon Quest veterans know the towns change at night too. Some NPCs go to sleep and others appear. Dragon Quest IX uses the same system and wide palette of colors like to simulate a real sun. After playing so many brown washed games on consoles it’s refreshing to see colors, lots and lots of bright colors.
