Actually, I'm not the one chillin' with Dragon Quest IX--some random YouTuber is, as evidenced in this rather strange video:
I'm posting the video here because, as strange as it is, it has reignited my interest in this game. I haven't played a Dragon Quest title since I worked my way through part one as a teen, but I'll definitely be picking up part IX--as soon as, you know, it's released in the U.S.
Hopefully the folks at Square Enix will announce a release date soon. And while they're at it, maybe they'll announce a release date for a localized version of Hikari no 4 Senshi: Final Fantasy Gaiden?
