With five months to go until Dragon Quest IX comes out in Japan there is plenty of time for Square Enix to refuel the hype train. For starters, they just released a “new” Dragon Quest IX trailer on their YouTube channel with glorious looking gameplay footage.
By “new” I mean new for the public. This trailer with fire spell casting and King Slime squishing was originally shown at Jump Fiesta with one slight change. The release date has been updated to say July 11. How painful would it have been if Square Enix forgot to change the release date? You can watch an embedded clip with the old release date here or click over to the official video and watch the movie in high definition.
