Infinity Strash: DRAGON QUEST The Adventure of Dai, is coming to the West and will be hitting PlayStation, PC and Nintendo Switch.
You read that right.. “Infinity Strash: DRAGON QUEST The Adventure of Dai”, not Infinity Slash or Infinite Stash. Strash is a made-up word that exists only within the Dragon Quest universe. But every time we read that title our brains try to make sense of it and our eyes roll up into our head. It’s not just you.
The good news is that.. let’s just call it DRAGON QUEST: The Adventure of Dai looks rather snazzy in action, as revealed by the latest trailer. It’s based upon an anime series which was, in turn, based on a Manga and follows.. wait for it.. the Adventures of Dai.
What makes Dai’s adventures interesting is that he’s the only human on his island. Happily enough, he gets along with the other monsters and non-humans. But when the Dark Lord Hadlar he’s forced to take up arms and embark on a bottom-kicking quest, encountering companions along the way.
It’s set to sport two modes, Adventure Mode and Temple of Recollection. Adventure Mode is a typical story-style adventure, following the plot of the anime. Temple of Recollection, on the other hand, is more of a rogue-lite style outing. In this mode, story goes out of the window but you can bash monsters to your hearts content.
You can check out the trailer above, but Infinity Strash: DRAGON QUEST The Adventure of Dai doesn’t have a release date. We do know it’ll be skipping the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, as Japanese games sometimes do.
Publisher Square Enix has promised to reveal more information about Infinity Strash: DRAGON QUEST The Adventure of Dai further down the line. In the meantime, we’re going to recite tongue-twisters till our brains start working again.
