Dragon Quest 25th anniversary gallery displayed sky-high

Square Enix celebration of long-running RPG to be held on 52nd floor of Mori Tower, Roppongi Hills.

The Dragon Quest franchise is a big deal in Japan when compared to the rest of the world. With its 25th anniversary coming up, publisher Square Enix is planning something special to celebrate the role-playing series' birthday.

If Square Enix could paint the tower "Slime" blue for the game's anniversary, it would.

From October 8 until December 4, the company will be opening a Dragon Quest Gallery high and above the Mori Tower in Roppongi Hills, located in the Roppongi district of Minato, Japan. Specifically, the gallery will be on display in the Mori Art Center Gallery, located on the 52nd floor of the tower.

There, attendants can take a look at rare design materials, original artworks, pieces by character designer Akira Toriyama (of Dragonball fame), notes from series creator Yuji Horii, and sheet music from composer Koichi Sugiyama. Square Enix will also open a new version of a Dragon Quest-themed bar Luida's Bar.

The last Dragon Quest game that was localized in English was Dragon Quest IX for the DS. The next game in the pipeline in the US is Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2. For more information on the latter, visit GameSpot's coverage on the title.

Are we ever going to get a DQ Anthology or Collection? I would love to have 1 - 8 on one DVD/Blu-Ray for the Xbox 360/PS3/ Wii. Release it for $59.99 too. The only one I've finished was the very first one. I'm almost done with DQ 3 & 8.


Oh another DQ Monsters: Joker.... Haven't even finished the first one yet :/ Dunno what it is about those games, I really really like them and they're fun, but I tend to not finish them....only ones I ever finished are IV and VIII... Hm well and about the tower: Would be cool if they would do something like that in the EU too ^___^
