Some Dragon Quest 3DS Stuff I Bought

My big shopping goal for this trip to Japan was to acquire a Japanese 3DS system. From Sega 3D Classics to Gaist Crusher to the Virtual Console, I had dozens of reasons for wanting one. I went to a couple of game shops and saw everything from plain systems to special editions featuring Luigi, Monster Hunter, Animal Crossing, One Piece, and more. But one system caught my eye above all others- The Dragon Quest Monsters 2 special edition console. I’m a huge Dragon Quest fan (I even do a Dragon Quest podcast that will have a third episode, I promise!) and I just knew this was the Japanese 3DS for me. It was used, but as you’ll see in the pictures below, in perfect condition. And at 17,800 Yen, it was a damn good deal. Let’s take a look at it!

P.S. Please enjoy the lovely floral background provided by the comforter on my hotel room bed 🙂

Once I settled on the console, I figured I should purchase the first DQ Monsters on 3DS while I was there. You know, for consistency.

…and it would have just been rude for me to leave the store without Dragon Quest VII, especially with it being only 2400 yen.

Will buying this increase increase the chance of it coming to the west?

Well, it would seem that I have started a 3DS Dragon Quest collection of sorts. Now to track down a copy of Slime Mori Mori 3…
