Squall Fortune Street Character Introduction

Square Enix has shared a new character introduction trailer for Fortune Street: Dragon Quest & Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary, and the new trailer debuts Final Fantasy VIII hero, Squall. In the video above, Squall is shown saying “I don’t fear expensive shops. You just simply have to not stop at one.” He then promptly lands on one, being forced to pay 1,750G to Lightning, to which he says “I’m going to destroy this expensive shop.”

Fortune Street: Dragon Quest & Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary releases in Japan on October 19, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

A New Itadaki Street is on the Way!

You’d be forgiven for having never heard of Itadaki Street before. The wonderfully charming and original concept takes popular Square Enix characters from Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, and places them in a Monopoly-style board game. The character designs are wonderful, and the game is incredibly fun.

Fortunately, Square Enix knows that also! During their recent live-stream, Itadaki Street: Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary was announced for PlayStation 4 and PS VITA. The game is set to release in October in Japan.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 Coming to Nintendo Switch

Over the weekend, Square Enix hosted a massive live-stream with a slew of news for fans of the Dragon Quest franchise. The biggest piece of news being that the much-lauded Dragon Quest Builders 2 is coming to the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. Builders is a game that takes the Minecraft formula and gives it a charming story, with a Dragon Quest backdrop.

The new release also adds underwater diving, hang-gliding, and even local multiplayer for up to 4 players. Local multiplayer! There’s no release date set for the title, but hopefully we get a North American release.
