The legendary Dragon Quest
series (originally published in Japan in 1986, and of course in North America as Dragon Warrior
after that) turns 25 this year, and Square Enix is giving all of its gifts away. We've already heard about a Wii collection
coming out, but as you can see above, some of the prizes are a little less practical. That's a pair of plushie slimes
on the left, and on the right is a Smile Slime Crystal Mascot figurine
, measuring about 6 centimeters tall. Both special slime items also have a DQ
25th anniversary logo on the back. Both of those will be 1554 yen, or about $19 US.
Additionally, Square Enix is offering some special edition tote bags for the anniversary for about $26 each, and some Dragon Quest business card holders
(with art featuring the first three games) for around $20 US. All of the swag is supposed to be available starting late July in Japan.
