Video game fans eagerly awaiting the Feb. 14 launch of the DRAGON QUEST® VI: Realms of Revelation video game for the Nintendo DS™ family of systems will have a fun way to count down to the game’s release. Nintendo of America will kick off a trivia contest via its official “@NintendoAmerica” Twitter handle. A series of trivia questions about the game – each one trickier than the last – will be posted throughout the week, inviting fans and followers to submit the correct answer. The contest will offer prizes for each Round, including 100 T-shirts for Round 1, four copies of DRAGON QUEST VI: Realms of Revelation for Round 2 and a trip for two to San Francisco, where the Round 3 winner can meet DRAGON QUEST creator Yuji Horii in person (see below for more prize details).
While anyone with access to the Web will be able to view the contest questions and official answers, only the first 100 eligible @NintendoAmerica Twitter followers who correctly answer the first question today will be eligible to advance Round 2, and four Round 2 winners who correctly answer later questions will advance to Round 3 (the final round). Full contest details, and Official Rules and regulations can be found at http://dragonquest6.nintendo.com/contest.
DRAGON QUEST fans on the West Coast will also get the chance to meet Horii at a special appearance at the GameStop “Store of the Future” in Palo Alto, Calif., on Saturday, Feb. 12, from 1-3 p.m. Horii will autograph items for the first 50 consumers in attendance, and the DRAGON QUEST VI: Realms of Revelation game will be on sale for the duration of the event – two days prior to its nationwide launch.
Previously unavailable outside of Japan, DRAGON QUEST VI: Realms of Revelation makes its North American debut exclusively on hand-held Nintendo DS systems Feb. 14. Originally released in 1995 for Japan’s Super Famicom system (known in the U.S. as Super NEST), the game offers rich role-playing adventure in a multitude of captivating worlds as players gather allies and battle fierce monsters on a quest to defeat evil forces. Players can choose from nine starting classes and unlock others as they progress through the game.
