imageDragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies is getting quite a marketing push in North America. Nintendo threw a star studded sneak peek for the game in Los Angeles yesterday where Lil John encountered slimes.

 

The Associate Press were at the event and took photos of celebrities drinking out of chalices and the medieval-esque venue.

 

While stunt like this may not appeal to Dragon Quest diehards, they help boost the series’ mainstream popularity in the States and that means more localized Dragon Quest games. Well, that’s if Lil John can push Dragon Quest IX.

 

A hat tip to Tommy Lee for the tip!
