In "Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies," players begin their adventure as a city guardian who is sent to retrieve a sacred tree’s fruits, which have the power to grant wishes. Players travel the world, conquer fearsome monsters and unravel an epic storyline. During their journey, players will encounter mighty opponents in fast-paced battles, and also interact with a colorful cast of characters.

"Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies" contains special modes that let players share their adventure with others, allowing up to four players to team up via a local wireless connection and experience the fun of tackling challenging monsters and dungeons cooperatively with their own characters. Players can even leave the game active in their backpacks, pockets or purses and still interact with other players via an interactive "Tag Mode." Information about players’ characters can be wirelessly transmitted to others, and treasure maps and customized greetings can be exchanged automatically by players who come within range of one another when their games are set to Tag Mode. Players looking to enjoy a variety of different game activities can take on special side quests. Some of these quests will be earned by progressing through the game, while additional quests will be made available for free download for players with broadband Internet access after the game launches, providing hours of additional content for virtual adventurers to enjoy either on their own or with friends. Some downloadable quests will continue the main storyline of the game, while others offer standalone missions.

"DQIX is a subtly sophisticated game, and while it doesn't quite revolutionize RPGs it definitely pushes them forward.  1UP.com
"Dragon Quest IX: Sentinel of the Starry Skies is an epic game that will keep most players enthralled for hours on end.  Gaming Age.com

    Expert Review Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies for the Nintendo DS Review
    By: Todd Douglass Blogcritics.org Reviews
    Published on: 8/3/2010 4:13 AM
    Next to Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest has been one of the longest running role-playing game franchises on the market. The series has been a hit on consoles dating back to the NES and now the franchise has been revitalized on the Nintendo DS. Published by Nintendo and Square Enix, I suppose it shouldn’t be too shocking this latest installment, IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies, is appearing on Nintendo's popular handheld. Sure this is a break in tradition, but it’s a logical step....read the full review

    It always amazes me when I hear stories about how popular the Dragon Quest series is in Japan. The entire country seems to react feverishly when the game hits store shelves, similar to how college frats shut down when a new Halo is released (just on a much larger scale that doesn't involve Jagermeister). But Japan's love for the series isn't unreasonable; Dragon Quest is one of the grandfathers of the Japanese role-playing game genre, and the franchise has had great success in the United States as well...The latest member of the series, Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies, is headed exclusively to the Nintendo DS and introduces impressive multiplayer functionality to the canonical series. The game also features character classes, item creation and -- as you might expect -- plenty of slimes to defeat. I was frustrated by certain aspects of Dragon Quest IX, as the game's by-the-books battle system is almost too traditional for its own good and the focus on multiplayer hurts Dragon Quest's otherwise enticing story. But Dragon Quest IX is ultimately a charming game with plenty to do...Despite my problems with Dragon Quest IX, I still enjoyed the game and I appreciate all the side quests and alchemy players can enjoy at their leisure. The streamlined multiplayer support is also very nicely implemented, though it depends entirely on if you can find friends that own a copy...If you can look past the lack of character development and the overly simplistic battle system, Dragon Quest IX is really enjoyable and will keep players interested for many hours. Also, any game with slimes in it is worth a look, naturally. - Ryan Clements
