With the Dragon Quest IV DS remake announced for the US and Europe this week, we thought it'd be good a time to dig up Enix's commercials for the original Famicom game's release in Japan. They're completely different from the retro ads used last November when the DS remake shipped.As with Squaresof...

Square Enix released an image of the box for the North American release of the Dragon Quest IV remake, and it looks pretty nice!
