This new trailer highlights Dragon Quest IX's multiplayer features. Those unfortunate players who don't have friends to play with will have to be content with the single-player adventure; DQIX only supports local (not wi-fi) connections. For a good primer, check out Dragon Quest IX: Clearing the Air.
You are a mighty Celestrian, fallen from the sky and exiled to roam amongst man and beast in the world below. Where will your travels take you?
The existence of Dragon Quest IX was first confirmed in 2006 by series co-creator and music composer Koichi Sugiyama. What Sugiyama failed to mention, however, was, at the time, one of the biggest surprises in the industry: that the next major installment of the super popular Dragon Quest series would be on Nintendo's handheld DS instead of on a major home console. Since then, the shock has abated and, after much delays to appease legions of Japanese gamers clamoring for orthodox Dragon Questing, the ninth installment to this epic series has been unleashed.
