Be My ValenSlime: Dragon Quest VI launch event pics

We gave you the heads up, so I hope you went. Dragon Quest creator Yuji Hori came to America to sign autographs at a Dragon Quest VI launch day event.

It sounds like the February 12th Palo Alto, California event was pretty cool. Above you'll see fans waiting in line, with one showing off her "Be My ValenSlime" shirt. I must have this shirt. Attendees got goodies and the opportunity to get the game a couple of days ahead of the official February 14th launch date. This is the first time DQVI has been made available outside of Japan. Finally.

One dude, a Lawarence L. of Lansing, MI, won a trivia event held by Nintendo. He was flown in to the California event to meet Hori and get his copy of the game. Lucky bastard.

See full-sized images from the event in our gallery below.
