Preorder Chapters of the Chosen DS Dragon Quest 4
Recently Square Enix has trademarked Chapters of the Chosen. Many are speculating that this is related to Dragon Quest IV / Dragon Warrior 4 as the game is based on 5 chapters as you control the chosen ones.
The North American release date for Dragon Quest IV DS is not that far off surely. This highly anticipated DS game blew sales away in Japan in late 2007 when it was released. Not even Final Fantasy IV DS could compare to DQ IV DS. It is personally one of my favorite RPG's, definitely the best Nintendo RPG. Needless to say it was way ahead of it's time with it's party structure, tactics, and depth.
After Chapter 5 all the characters join together but you no longer control every character. That said the ally AI is pretty good in this game; it's great to see Brey use Bikill on your allies like Alena and Ragnar. Chapter 5 is full of content while the first four chapters are very enthralling especially if you are just meeting these characters.
Gameplay is similar turn based, and back in these days you could not see your allies during battle. That said the setting is much more vibrant and it is based on where you are fighting the enemy, plus the enemies are now animated. It is similar to the PS1 remake that never made it out of Japan but with more smooth graphics. Preorder Dragon Quest IV DS and keep up with lordyuanshu.com as you will know the release date the day it is released.
