NINTENDO CELEBRATES “VALENSLIME DAY” WITH LAUNCH OF DRAGON QUEST VI: REALMS OF REVELATION

Enhanced Version of Classic RPG Makes Debut in North America with New Options and Unlockable Surprises

REDMOND, Wash., Feb. 14, 2011 – Starting today, video game fans in North America can embark on a classic hand-held adventure that has been unavailable outside of Japan for more than 15 years. The DRAGON QUEST® VI: Realms of Revelation™ game makes its U.S. debut for the Nintendo DS™ family of systems, combining classic role-playing thrills with fresh character options, unique challenges and play-it-anywhere convenience. With a robust class system and the ability to enlist monsters to help players on their quests, this memorable entry in the popular DRAGON QUEST series will enthrall experienced players and newcomers alike.

DRAGON QUEST VI: Realms of Revelation invites players to explore multiple worlds and take a stand against the villainous Murdaw, who spreads terror and unrest throughout a strange alternate universe. Joined by a traveling martial artist and a mysterious girl, the game’s hero must face down an imaginative cast of enemy monsters – including the iconic Slime. In this new edition of the game for Nintendo DS systems, players can even have monsters join their traveling party to lend a hand in battles. Other special features include enhanced graphics and new touch-screen mini-games.

“With DRAGON QUEST VI: Realms of Revelation, players not only get to discover a classic game that’s been unavailable outside Japan since 1995, but they’re also getting some fresh twists and surprises,” said Marc Franklin, Nintendo of America’s director of Public Relations. “The ability to switch between character classes and recruit enemies into the player’s party adds a new level of fun to the classic DRAGON QUEST game play.”

DRAGON QUEST VI: Realms of Revelation offers players more than 15 character classes, such as Priest, Warrior, Merchant and Thief. Throughout the adventure, these classes will become more powerful and grant the player new abilities that can be deployed as the game progresses.
