Spoilers ahead. Read if you dare.
If I remember right, I started Dragon Quest 5: Hand of the Heavenly Bride a few days back. (I think tuesday evening) Now, from what I’ve read in certain sites, it’s never been released in the US before so this is a first for those who are playing this now.
My first reaction when I played it.
“WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS MOM?!?”
Next thing I knew, I was in a ship, along with my buff father.
Now you see, when playing games like Dragon Quest and such, they really never tell you where to go. It’s not like the usual RPG’s where they tell you where to go and you can go on your merry way, without any worry or care. Noooo. Not this game. You gotta figure out where you’re going to go because that’s how the world works apparently.
I look at my profile in-game and realize how cute my little Xale is. (Yes, his name is Xale!)
You start out with him as a 6 year old boy.
Your father tells you to explore the ship, blah blah. I talk to everyone and the story continues. As we progress through the story, you go to caves AS A 6 YEAR OLD BOY and fight monsters.
I can kinda imagine a 6 year old boy, wielding a sword and swinging it around, his mighty hands trying so hard to be strong. *squeal*
You meet a friend named Bianca and you exterminate ghosts in a tower. You make friends with a sabertooth cat tiger thing as well as a spoiled prince.
UNTIL YOU GET KIDNAPPED AND YOUR FATHER GETS KILLED.
Then we fast forward 10 years later. You and the prince are together and escape slavery after 10 long years.
In my current save file, I have to help save Prince Harry’s kingdom. Yeaaah. Prince Harry. I need to get Ra’s Mirror and save the world!
Because that is what my father who died told me to do.
Now if everyone will excuse me, I’m going to continue my save file and finish as much Dragon Quest 5 as I could. Besides, my Dragon Quest 6 is still waiting for me, and I’m a bit far in that file too.
Happy Gaming and Merry Christmas!
