Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The Dragon Quest series begun in 1984, in Japan, on the Nintendo Entertainment System, and the game pioneered role-playing video games with features that are considered standard fare such as turnbased battling, levelling up and advancing the storyline through completing smaller tasks. The games are wildly popular in Japan, spawning several spin-off titles and even feature films.

The series is primarily the work of three men: Yuji Horii is the scenario writer and lead designer; Akira Toriyama is the character designer with a background in Manga comics; and Koichi Sugiyama composing the music.

Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie is the Nintendo DS remake of a SNES turn-based role-playing title which was published in Japan in 1995. This is the sixth instalment in a long running popular series and the third being remade for Nintendo DS. It is not necessary to have played previous games in order to enjoy the story of Dragon Quest VI.

The player takes the role of the protagonist, a village boy that is on a quest to defeat Murdaw an evil being that is threatening the world, along the way completing optional quests given by people in need of help. The player can talk to the members of his own party to get clues on where to go next or to read different comments on the current situation, while better understanding the personality of each party member. Thus while the player can try to complete the main storyline he can become involved with other people’s smaller scale stories in the game; for example, helping an old man to tame a wild horse so that it can be used to pull a wagon. This also gives the game bite-sized elements, which is well suited to the portable nature of the Nintendo DS system.

The main story takes place in two different worlds, the World of Dreams and the Real World and the player is not aware at first of which world is the real one.

Product Description

Dragon Quest VI: Realms Of Reverie is the sixth instalment in the long running Dragon Quest series which is a remake of a SNES turn-based role-playing game which has been translated and exported out of Japan to Europe for the very first time. You play a hero sent to defeat Murdaw the Demon lord of Darkness and will pit your battle across large mystical worlds. Whilst travelling across the lands explore new towns and wander through dungeons but look out for the many enemies which will attack you without warning. Whether you attack defend cast a spell use an item or flee you will need to keep your wits about you and if successful you'll be awarded with valuable experience points. These battles are essential to help you acquire skills strength and collectable items including money with which you can buy better equipment. There are nine basic character vocations to choose from including Warrior Martial Artist Mage Priest Dancer Thief Merchant Gadabout and Monster Master. The character can change his or her vocations at Alltrades Abbey. Each character also has seven attributes which influence their efficiency in battles - strength agility resilience wisdom attack defence and style. Your style attribute can be increased dependent upon which items you equip and by increasing your style attribute you can for the first time stun certain enemies into submission during battles with your stunning style choices. Instead of recruiting monsters you fight in the battlefield and use as controllable members of the players party as you did in Dragon Quest V: Hand Of The Heavenly Bride you now encounter different types of slime enemies in cities and dungeons that will act as non-playable characters who ask to join the party. These Slime characters can then be used in the Slimopolis arena for fighting in tournaments again other powerful monsters; in this arena you can win a variety of unique prizes. Also look out for the Slippin' Slime mini-game available to you in certain

5.0 out of 5 stars Third and final of the classic remakes 3 Aug 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Dragon Quest VI was originally released for the Super Famicom in 1995. Back in those days, the game was known for it's vast graphical improvements over Dragon Quests IV and V. This was another Dragon Quest Europe and indeed America never got the chance to play, until now. This game concludes the "Zenithia" trilogy loosely connecting IV V and VI by a common castle location. It is, therefore, unfair to compare Dragon Quest IX to this game as it is decisively old-school.

For beginners, this game isn't easy, but for seasoned fans it's the classic game that you know and love. The plot is the classic "a band of heroes team up to defeat evil and save the world". You will actually be saving two worlds, another common staple of RPG's being the inclusion of a parallel "dream world". You will be exploring both worlds as you progress.

So what is so hard? Well, random battles are relentless as ever but are actually a blessing in disguise. You really need to level up before you enter dungeons with enemies that can rip you to shreds if you haven't done a little bit of grinding. You better have read the extensive game manual with the game. When you begin the game, not one person in your little village tells you the controls or the battle mechanics or how to use the menus. When all of your squad members die, you get sent back to the last save you made. While your progress is lost, you get to keep all of the experience points you gained so, even when KO'd, those lost steps still count towards building strength. However, half of the money you earn is lost when you all die so you better put that money in a bank for safe-keeping. Losing 10,000 gold like I did was a bummer.

Even masters of the genre will find at least 40 hours of adventuring at their fingertips.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I read the reviews on this game which weren't very good but decided to take a chance & buy it anyway, i'm glad i did if you are a fan of the DQ series as i am then this game will not dissapoint, the game itself is very similar to the others which is great, you have quests to do people to help & monsters to kill, well worth the money.

Please ignore other reviews of this game, I'm not sure why but they all seem to think that Dragon quest 6 is the sequel to Dragon quest 9.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic JRPG fun! 31 July 2013
By Senyoru
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a remake of DQ6 that only came out in Japan(?) for the Super Nintendo/Super Famicom. ( Pretty old. We speak early 90's ) It's very simple and classic. Exactly what you'd expect from Dragon Quest. Perhaps not many people in the west are aware... So I thought I should mention it since this got some bad reviews. It's a great game, if you like those old school classic RPG's. Just don't expect it to be FF6 or Chrono Trigger. We're talking even simpler than that.

Classic turn based battles, anyone can understand and master it. Like most 80's and 90's JRPGS, you either love or hate them. If you've played any early Final Fantasy or Pokémon then it should be no problem for you.

Graphics are the same as DQ 4 and 5 on the DS, not 3D like number 9 on the DS. ( If you wonder where the numbers before and in between are, they ended up on PS1 and PS2. The previous games on NES/Famicom and Super Nintendo/Super Famicom. First DQ game that came out in Europe was the PS2 one. ) If you compare to the original, it's a lot better but still keeps it's old school charm.

Music is what it always is in Dragon Quest, simple yet fitting and catchy tunes. Maybe not everyone's taste, this ain't no Final Fantasy. It's still acceptable though.

Dragon Quest is what made JRPG's popular on home consoles and is still one of the most loved game series in Japan today with kids and well as adults waiting in line to buy the next game on day one. If you respect and love the classic RPG's but missed out on this one, definitely check it out.

EXTRA: Dragon Quest 7 was made into a full 3D remake in Japan recently for the 3DS, so look forward to that if you like this one! But we may still have to wait long so try this out if you're interested. ( Also recommending DQ 9. )

3.0 out of 5 stars Just to set the record straight 27 July 2011
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Just want to set the record straight as the other two reviews on here, don't give in my opinion an accurate impression of the game.

They both compare relms of reverie to Dragon Quest 9 Sentinals of the starry skys.

DQ 9 was a new original release for the DS. Relms of Revrie is a re-release of an old Snes game (think it was Snes anyway) It looks and plays dated by design. It has features missing that were in DQ 9 by design. Relms of Revrie is known as Dragon Quest 6 and was made in a different age of games long before the multiplayer online gaming of DQ 9.

That said although DQ 6 is a good game, it isn't the best Dragon Quest game around. But never the less it is unfair to judge it against a game released several years after this games original release. It is designed for those gamers who didn't experience the game originally or who want a bit of good quality nostalgia. Check out IGN or similar for a more accurate review
