Sony announces Dragon Quest PS4 Limited Edition

#1 Edited by -Damien- (5355 posts) -

At a press conference in Tokyo yesterday, Sony and Square Enix announced Dragon Quest Heroes for PlayStation 3 and 4, the first game in the impossibly-big-in-Japan series to hit PlayStation platforms in close to a decade. It's a Dynasty Warriors-style action game produced in collaboration with Koei Tecmo, and could give Sony a sales boost next year; the PS4 hasn't been performing well in Japan so far, with a distinct lack of titles that appeal to the local market. All of this is fairly interesting if you're a Dragon Quest fan or are into Japanese games.

If you're neither of those things, though, just look at this awesome Dragon Quest Metal Slime edition PS4 that will accompany the game. It's decked out in silver and emblazoned with the cute Slime mascot from the series, with a Metal Slime dripping over the edge. There's never been a cuter way to protect your USB ports.

Dragon Quest Heroes will be out in Japan next spring; the limited edition PS4 doesn't have a price or release date, but it should arrive around the same time. Chances of a release outside Japan are, inevitably, pretty low.

because I don't like the idea of having a big shiny blob on top of my console?

Plus, why get excited when there seems to be little likeliness this will be sold outside japan

True, true. But I'm too lazy to do so :P

Never to see the light of day outside of Japan. :(

Besides the giant blob, I think the silver looks pretty good.

@mr-powers: Oh so it's not even a USB stick? Wow, cows are easy to please.

I like how the silver color is almost reminiscent of the original PS1. I'm not a fan of white electronics at all, but this silver looks great! Any word on whether the blob is removable/moveable?

I hate that silver finish always looks tacky and makes the device look cheap.

The PS1 wasn't silver it was matte light grey.

@bldgirsh: basically it looks like Colossus took a shit on a PlayStation

#17 Posted by funsohng (27928 posts) -

That has to be the worst limited edition console I've ever seen.

#18 Edited by BldgIrsh (2593 posts) -

@lostrib: Would probably sell more if it was labeled as colossus shit heh.

You underestimate Japan's obsession with the slime character.

I was excited clicking on this thread only to be very disappointed. WTF cares about Dragon Quest Heroes with it's Dynasty Warrior gameplay? Where is Dragon Quest XI?

Wow, herms are hard to inform. Everyone else understood the first go around, while you seem to be struggling.

Japans obsession with slime in general.

If your jizz is silver and has googly eyes I'd suggest you see a doctor.

on the 3ds most likely.

Not a big fan of the silver or Dragon Quest for that matter. This is a rare time I'm not jealous of a Japan only release.

The metal slime is blocking where the disc is inserted. You wouldn't want to put it there.

Japan's obsession with weird design doesn't make this any good.

Doesn't look that awesome, except for the color maybe

#35 Posted by PsychoLemons (2101 posts) -

I was expecting Dragon Quest XI....

Why are you beating a dead horse?

The silver thing looks exactly like -Damien- threads, very poop like.

Good God, no thanks. As much as I loved DQ8... No.

#39 Posted by WitIsWisdom (3786 posts) -

I will likely get this and give my kids my current PS4. They have been wanting one, and this is bad ass..... haters gunna hate.

They should of just use this instead

I think it's kinda cool, but I was raised on Dragon Warrior which later became Dragon Quest out here (it was always Quest out there).

I miss the cartoon series as well.
