There’s to be more to the Dragon Quest Anniversary Collection than meets the eye. This 25th anniversary compilation disc includes Famicom and Super Famicom versions of Dragon Quest, Dragon Quest II, and Dragon Quest III. Most significantly, included with a special edition package of the collection will be a trailer for the upcoming Dragon Quest X for the Wii.


Other video features will include newly-created anime openings for Dragon Quest I, II, and III, developed by Kamikaze Douga, the studio that produced the animation for Dragon Quest IX and Dragon Quest Monsters: Battle Victory Road.


A reprinted Shinken NES strategy guide for all three Dragon Quest games from the days of the Famicom will be part of the package, too. This will total to 130 pages. First print copies also include a 1:1 scale mini-medal, an item hidden in Dragon Quest games for players to find and exchange.
