Dragon Quest IX’s Localization Looks Something Like This



Along with the July 11 release date, Nintendo sent out the first batch of English Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies screenshots.


While story screenshots aren’t in the batch, the item descriptions are flavored with puns like “driller pillar” and extra “u”s. Seems like the localization team is sticking to the Dragon Quest standards established for the Nintendo DS remakes.


Nintendo is also localizing Dragon Quest IX’s downloadable quests, which players can access over Nintendo Wi-Fi. One of these, released last year in Japan, features Santa Claus.
