Those in the New York area eager to pick up Dragon Quest IX a day early -- and have Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii autograph their plush Slimes -- should make their way to the Nintendo World Store Saturday, July 10.
Nintendo will hold a launch event for the multiplayer RPG at its store in Rockefeller Center from 1-4pm. It would behoove you to arrive early, however: the first thirty to buy the game will be able to get items autographed by Horii. In addition, Nintendo will offer Dragon Quest swag, a themed photo booth, and treats from a special Dragon Quest ice cream truck!
... don't you kind of want to go just to see this ice cream truck?
