Maybe this is why Dragon Quest games haven't caught on in America like they have in Japan. Square Enix is promoting the DS remake of Dragon Quest VI the same way it did for IVand V: with a wonderfully goofy commercial featuring actors dressed up as hilarious semi-realistic versions of the game's Akira Toriyama characters. This ad totally fills us with nostalgia for a childhood that we didn't actually spend playing this game!
Check out the new ad after the break. Dragon Quest VI will be out in Japan this week, with a Western release to follow at some unspecified later date.
