Eurogamer DQIX review inbound

Verdict due 2pm BST on Friday.

Eurogamer's review of monster Japanese RPG Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies will be published at 2pm BST tomorrow.

DQIX, due out on 23rd July for the DS, sold a whopping 4.26 million copies in Japan, where it was given top marks by regional magazine Famitsu.

Dragon Quest IX picks up the series where the PS2 left off. You will create your own hero and grow them over the course of the adventure, discovering over 1000 pieces of clothing, items, weapons and armour. Companions can be customised too.

A key feature of DQIX is wireless co-op. This enables up to four friends to share the adventure and join their unique characters locally to tackle tough dungeons and monsters.

And if you leave the DS on while the handheld is stowed in your bag, the game enters a Canvassing mode and shares character information with other players as they stride unknowingly by.

Simon previewed the game waaay back in 2007.

Update: And here it is. Eurogamer's review of Dragon Quest IX is now live.
