Dragon Quest slime drink suntorySquare Enix and Suntory are joining forces again! The two companies have a habit of teaming up for specialty drinks based on Square Enix’s video games. As you may remember, there’ve been tons of Final Fantasy “potions,” with the most recent batch promoting and featuring Final Fantasy XIII characters on the cans. Now it’s being done for the Wii game Dragon Quest Monsters Battle Road Victory.

There are going to only be two potions released, with two containers. Each container looks like a slime sitting on a pedestal. Don’t worry – the drinks probably won’t be orange and blue. It looks like wrappers are giving the slimes their customary colors. The blue slime container holds Hoimi Cider and the orange Tropical Frizz. Both are designed to be healthy drinks, and not energy potions, and each will cost ¥284 (~$3). So far, no sites are taking preorders. I suggest checking JBox or Play-Asia in a month, since both of those websites carried the Suntory FF potions.

Honestly, I think I’d buy one of these just for the bottle. The Suntory Square Enix potions in the past have been a little questionable when it comes to taste. And by questionable, I mean that the probably one out of ten people will actually love the flavor.
