Dragon Quest IX gameplay trailer

I’ve been waiting for this ever since I heard the title would be exclusive to the DS. Here it is, finally … a gameplay trailer for Dragon Quest IX: Protectors of the Starry Sky.

I must admit, the game looks beautiful, even though it is on the DS. I know Final Fantasy III looks pretty damn neat itself, but this is just awesome. At first, I was a little skeptical when I heard Square chose to turn the game into an action-RPG, but it really doesn’t look bad at all.

What do you guys think? Frankly, I think the DS is ideal for the next Dragon Quest, but I know there’s still a lot of people out there who would disagree with me.
