I didn’t think it was possible to top how insanely incredible the first trailer was, but they did it. The Dragon Quest: Your Story second trailer is here, and it is an explosion of climactic moments from Dragon Quest V rendered in the most beautiful way I can imagine. If I weren’t sitting down for this, I’d have fallen on my face from weak knees. Please, for the love of all that is good, watch this movie trailer.
The accompanying promotional image for Dragon Quest: Your Story is super cool too. It’s like Square Enix and director Takashi Yamazaki and his team have all fallen into perfect sync to deliver the greatest experience possible. Frankly, I think I’m more hyped for this movie right now than I am for anything in the media — games, music, or movies.
So it’s really too bad that there is no word on an international release yet. It seems to me that a foreign release of some kind is inevitable — whether official or via fansubs — but it can’t happen soon enough.
Dragon Quest: Your Story will release in Japan on Aug. 2, 2019, and they will be the luckiest country in the world on that day. Let us know if your hype levels are anything like mine.
