Dragon Quest: Your Story
« on: April 06, 2019, 11:46:13 am »
So, don't know how many know this already; but it looks like Dragon Quest V is getting a movie adaptation. Trailer can be seen here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANB1TBs6RRA

To debut in Japan on August. I think it looks good; and certainly promising. Even if it's quite likely the hero may end with Bianca. I also like that they chose V. It's among my most favorite DQ's. Even recently got the mobile port to play it again. Hopefuly the movie also gets a worldwide release.

So, thoughts?

I've never played it, but I saw the trailer.  I think it looks great!  I'm always a bit wary about video game movie adaptations, they always cut or change to much, but without any frame of reference I may really enjoy it.

I'm excited for it. It looks exciting and I think they played loose with the Toriyama designs, but in a way that translates really well for 3D. I quite dig the visual style, actually.

Movie adaption of Dragon Quest V? Huh. Sounds really cool.

I mean I think IX is a much better choice but that's because of nostalgia

I discovered this recently and I really like Dragon Quest so this makes me happy! I'm hoping this movie comes to the US!

Some new screenshots, though most might just be from the trailer:

Either way, the movie will have a special screening mid-July. Still hoping this will get an overseas release.

A new trailer:

The extent of how much of the game the movie will adapt intrigues me. For it's 3-part structure, I can see the trailers don't shy to show stuff related to the third part... except for that one detail. I'd think it's perhaps deliberate, considering things, though who knows.

Anyway, still shy of month and a half to go...

Well, somewhat late to bring up; and to my surprise, this will get an overseas release...

... on Netflix.

That's... something, I guess?  :?
