It's a formula gamers are all too familiar with. First step: Release a game (and hope it sells a bunch). Second step: As time goes on and the sales pile up, gain interest in your product again through a discounted re-release. Rinse and repeat. Enter: Dragon Quest IX, Final Fantasy IV, Dragon Que...

Are you thrilled that Square Enix finally got around to localizing Dragon Quest V? Or maybe you're disgusted that the remake didn't include more Dippity-Doo'd amnesiac protagonists or 30-minute-long cutscenes? Let the team know! The company has opened a comment form on the Dragon Quest V website,...

Square Enix has just announced a contest to promote (and give away) the upcoming Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride. If you are a citizen of the US (don't complain to us, we didn't make the contest) are eligible to win a big Dragon Quest V prize pack including a copy of the game signed by s...

Square Enix has announced a European release date for the DS remake of Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride: February 20, just three days after the North American release. Of course, the title will omit the number, because PAL region audiences must not be allowed to know how many Dragon Quest ...

We're barely surviving 2008's consumerism climax and already publishers are dangling their 2009 wares in front of us. Alright, Square Enix, we'll play your despicable game, if only to take our minds off the current gaming glut. Square Enix's North American (and heavily subtitled) lineup for Q1 200...

The start made by Dragon Quest V: Hand of a Heavenly Bride in Japan is hardly going to deter Square Enix from releasing more remakes (which we're completely fine with, by the way). Famitsu is reporting that the title has already burst through the million units sold mark, a meager thirteen days after...

Good thing you'll be caught up with E3 this week, because there's not a whole lot out on shelves -- at least, not in the U.S.. The most exciting thing this week? Metal Slug 7 finally comes out somewhere, with that somewhere being Japan. But that's not even close to being the most exciting Japanese r...

Dragon Quest V is going to be one of the most feature-packed games on the DS. Don't try and argue with us, for Famitsu's recent look at the title only cemented that fact in our mind. There is a lot going on here. Famitsu's article highlights not only a DS-exclusive character, Deborah, but also do...

Rare items will play more of a part in Dragon Quest V's sidequests than just the wireless Item Shop mode. DQV features "special items" that can be collected throughout the game simply for the novelty of having rare items. Some items are found in dungeons, and others are actually purchased as souveni...

Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride won't just be a straight remake of either the Super Famicom or PlayStation 2 versions of DQV. New characters, both original and pulled from other Dragon Quests, and new features are being put in. The Jailcat enemy from Dragon Quest VIII has been revealed to...

The latest issue of Shonen Jump features a nice blowout of screens from the upcoming Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride remake, as well as character and monster art. We quite enjoy Akira Toriyama's art when he's drawing stuff like Slime Knights and not extremely similar-looking protagonists...

Is today the DS day of awesome for Europe, or what? The latest trio of games announced for the continent are none other than the Dragon Quests. We only reported this morning that Dragon Quest IV, V, and VI were North American bound, so hearing about a European (and other PALs) confirmation so so...

Just yesterday, NCSX began taking preorders on adorable Dragon Quest slime DS Lite styli. Today, they've revealed a thematically appropriate companion piece: this Dragon Quest V DS protector. Much like other Hori Protect Cases, this is a transparent hard plastic cover for the DS, with attractive mo...

The website for the Dragon Quest V re-remake (probably to be titled Dragon Quest V: Heavenly Bride in its probable U.S. release) has been updated with character art and a little bit of history about the game. Most importantly for English readers, it's been updated with screens -- tons of them, in on...

Dragon Quest fans, this could be a very good day for you. You see, the fine folk over at Siliconera stumbled upon an odd Square Enix trademark on file with the U.S. Patent Office. It's a trademark for "Hand of the Heavenly Bride," which you may know is just a longer version of the Japanese game's s...
