Today Square Enix released a new set of screenshots of its upcoming anime-inspired action JRPG Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest The Adventure of Dai.
The screenshots showcase the story mode that follows the event of the manga and anime. Players who aren't good at action gameplay can pick story focus mode to make the difficulty easier. We also get to see the Temple of Recollection mode that requires you to progress through a series of stages and fight increasingly powerful enemies. By completing this mode you can acquire Bond Memories, which can be equipped to empower your characters.
Speaking of characters, we get to see Dai himself, Pop, Maam, and Hyunckel, on top of the villain Hadlar.
You can check out all the images below.
Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest The Adventure of Dai will release for PS5, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox Series X|S on September 28. The PC version will be both on Steam and the Windows Store.
If you're unfamiliar with Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest The Adventure of Dai, it was originally revealed all the way back in 2020 with an initial release window of 2021. That obviously did not materialize, and Square Enix continued to provide sparse information until we heard that it would come worldwide at Tokyo Game Show 2022. Recently we got the announcement of the release date and a trailer on top of another trailer.
Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai debuted on Weekly Shounen Jump in 1989 as a manga written by Riku Sanjo and illustrated by Koji Inada, based on the popular JRPG series by Yuji Horii. It then received a series of theatrical films and an anime between 1991 and 1992 that cemented its popularity. More manga followed until a new and massive 100-episode anime series brought the franchise back under the spotlight between 2020 and 2022.
