Dragon Quest IX ending up as a DS exclusive was a big deal back in the day. But how’d that come about in any case?

During the Dragon Quest 30th Anniversary Countdown Special this past week, Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino spoke about how he convinced series creator Yuji Horii to make IX for DS. Hino was also developing Professor Layton at that time, and Nintendo’s portable was experiencing great momentum. Horii hesitated at first and questioned having a numbered Dragon Quest game on a handheld, but Hino kept pushing him to do it.

Horii became a big fan of the tag mode in Dragon Quest IX, which would end up partially inspiring StreetPass support for the 3DS. He liked how it connected the game world and real world together.

Horii also said that his wish is just to “have Dragon Quest be enjoyed by as many people as possible”.

Puzzle & Dragons X was featured in a big way today at GungHo Festival 2016. There was news about a couple of collaborations, a versus mode, and more.

The first new Puzzle & Dragons X collaboration ties into Taiko Drum Master: Dokodon! Mystery Adventure. In Puzzle & Dragons X, players will be able to make friends with Don-chan and Tamazo X Don-chan. And in Taiko Drum Master: Dokodon! Mystery Adventure, free music from Puzzle & Dragons X will be offered at launch while also including Tamazo X Don-chan in Adventure Mode.

Monster Hunter Stories will also be seeing a collaboration in Puzzle & Dragons X. Rathalos and Nargacuga are being included as bosses, and it will be possible to create Soul Armor for each. This content will be distributed via a quest on August 10.

Aside from that, GungHo Online Entertainment provided a first look at Puzzle & Dragons’ versus mode, which is accessible at the Dragon Coliseum. The main objective here is to eliminate your opponent’s health. Battles are carried out by choosing skills and then playing a puzzle. The game determines the amount of damage for both players, and the person who has the higher attack amount can damage their opponent.

Check out the video below for footage of the collaborations and versus mode, as well as a trailer for the anime series, and a commercial for the title itself. We also included some gameplay that ties into the new toys.

Circle Entertainment posted updates about two games on its Twitter account yesterday.

First, an update for Ash is out now in North America, which fixes some bugs. It’ll be coming to Europe soon as well.

We also have confirmation that Puzzle Labyrinth is launching in North America on June 9. That game was previously announced for the same day in Europe.

Here’s a roundup of the tweets:

mega-man-animated-series

The Mega Man animated series was made entirely official this past week. Some concrete details about the show were announced, and we were even given a first look at the character’s appearance. Unfortunately, the fan reception wasn’t too hot.

Joe Kelly is one of the writers involved with the new Mega Man animated series. Likely in response to the harsh reception thus far, he put up a few messages on Twitter on Thursday.

Here’s what Kelly shared:
