Another week, another new round of Dragon Quest XI details from Weekly Jump magazine. This time, we learn more about Silvia, what he can do in battle and the Samadhi Kingdom. Full credit to Gematsu for the translation.

Silvia is a traveling entertainer who lives a freewheeling life and has the wonderful dream of “making people around the world smile through his own performance.” He is always cheerful and positive, and is the top mood maker among the party. He has magnificent poses and seems to get instinctively entranced. He can participate in battle through attacks, support, and recovery, and can equip one-handed swords, whips, and daggers.

Spells he can use include:

  • “Oomph” – Raises an ally’s attack power. A spell useful in boss battles and such.

His special skills include:

  • “Hustle Dance” – An lively dance that restores HP to all members of the party.
  • “Miracle Sword” – A one-handed sword skill that can recover HP while dealing damage.
  • “Whip of Love” – A whip skill that deals great damage to multiple enemies.
  • “Viper Fang” – A dagger skill that targets a single enemy and occasionally induces poison.

The Samadhi Kingdom is a country of knights surrounded by a desert. It is a historic kingdom that reigns over the desert and values its chivalry. It is rumored that the young prince is himself an outstanding knight. Horse races are also carried out there.

Nintendo advertising one of their products via posters at Shibuya station in Tokyo is nothing new – the company has advertised many of its biggest games and also the Switch this way. It probably comes as no surprise then that ARMS is the latest game to get this treatment. Shibuya station is one of the most heavily trafficked train stations in the world, so Nintendo’s newest IP is sure to get a lot of attention this way.
