Square Enix has announced the release date for the DS version of Dragon Quest VI. It is January 28, 2010.

After being delayed by Enix for a year plus, the game was originally released on the Super Famicom (Super Nintendo Entertainment System in the West) in December 1995 for the rough equivalent of US$100, going on to sell 3.2 million copies.

This DS remake will finally bring the game to North America and Europe in official, fully localized form. Release dates are TBA.
