DSi XL Goes Blue

That’s right folks, it’s another updated re-release of an updated re-release of an updated re-release of an updated re-release! Except this time it’s Blue!

The ‘Midnight Blue’ coloured DSi XL will be debuting in North America on July 11 for the price of USD $189.99, the ordinary price for XLs in the region. The release is the same date as the upcoming Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Sky. Thanks to Square Enix for their incredibly influence!

Anyway, with another DS re-release, it seems less likely that we will see any news on the 3DS at E3, even though it’s pretty much confirmed to be real, both by Nintendo and several of their closest developers. Or, maybe they just have so much money that Nintendo just doesn’t care anymore…

Either way, it’s blue and it looks cool. That’s all that really matters, really.

Final Fantasy: 4 Heroes of Light Lighting Up Western Stores

Square-Enix announced recently that their Final Fantasy DS spin-off Hikari no Yon Senshi: Fainaru Fantajī Gaiden which was released in Japan last year will be released in North America and Europe on October 5 and 8, respectively.

Entitled Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light focuses on a group of friends who must rescue a kidnapped princess from the evil Witch of the North. Square-Enix are marketing it as a classic RPG game that utilizes today’s technology, and this is proved by the classic, though slightly generic, plot.

Those who loved the classic Final Fantasy games (specifically Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest or Mystic Quest Legend in PAL regions, as many have compared the two titles), then you may want to hit this title up.

Dragon Quest IX Confirmed for Europe

The latest in Square Enix’s popular RPG franchise Dragon Quest, second only to Final Fantasy, is set for release in Europe as well as North America, and will be hitting European shelves on July 23, less than two weeks after the game’s NA release, exclusively for Nintendo’s DS.

The plot of Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Sky follows a city guardian who travels in search of sacred fruits, coincidentally from a sacred tree, that can grant wishes.

The game broke records when it was initially released in Japan on July 11 2009 (Exactly a year before the upcoming North American release) and helped boost DS sales by 152% within the first few weeks of release.

Look forward to this one, RPG fans!
