I should probably stop torturing myself over every gorgeous 3DS handheld that North America will likely never get. To help usher in the next installment of Japan’s favorite monster themed RPG spin-off, Nintendo will be releasing a limited edition Dragon Quest: Monsters 2 themed 3DS XL alongside the game’s launch on February 6, 2014.
The snazzy clamshell features grey silhouettes of some of the iconic monsters from the Dragon Quest series along with everybody’s favorite spinless starter fight, the Slime scattered across the case in his signature blue. The system will retail for 24,390 Yen (approximately $240) and will include a copy of Dragon Quest: Monsters 2.
Never gotten a chance to play much of the Dragon Quest spin-offs, but I do have a fond adoration for the core series. Dragon Quest VIII is a game that I constantly revisit but have no idea what I’m supposed to be doing. However, I can say I put a ton of time into and conquered Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime, the strangest slime flinging tank fortress game I’ve ever played.
