Video: Seth Green pitches Dragon Quest IX to teens

Nintendo is giving Dragon Quest IX some much-needed promotion with a commercial starring Airborne's Seth Green, premiering at movie theaters before showings of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. After the break, see Green use the lessons of Square Enix's multiplayer RPG to counsel desperate teenagers.

Green joins stars like Beyonce and Lisa Kudrow as a member of Nintendo's "kind of awkward advertising for quality DS games" club. It seems this North American ad plays up the customization aspect of the game, while the Japanese ad (below) is all about the multiplayer component -- well, that and the game's ability to attract SMAP.
