Japan Import: Dragon Quest Monsters 3D 3DS is slime-y

There’s something about the Dragon Quest slime. Maybe it’s his big, beaming eyes or his optimistic smile, but the mascot manages to be both slightly weird and utterly adorable at the same time. Admittedly, it probably has more fans in Japan. Those Japanese fans are going to be really excited soon, as a new 3DS is going to be covered in them.

Square Enix is remaking Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry’s Wonderland 3D, a Game Boy Color Dragon Quest spin-off. To celebrate its May 31, 2012 release, it will be available alone or packed with a custom slime 3DS. The 3DS in question is completely white, with a multitude of blue slimes and three metal slimes on the lid. It reminds people that Dragon Quest has been around since 1986.

As always, the 3DS is a region-locked system. If you want this Dragon Quest Monsters 3D 3DS, you’re going to pay a premium price of ¥24,980 (~$310) and only be able to use the system for Japanese games. While there is a slight chance Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry’s Wonderland 3D could get a worldwide release, as Eidos brought the original to North America and Europe, this 3DS will never be released outside Japan.

I think this is one of my favorite Japan-exclusive 3DS units so far. I really like how the slimes are arranged on the cover and that a few metal slimes were tossed in to make it more diverse.
