We're a month away from Nintendo's release of Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Sky, the DS exclusive ninth installment of the beloved RPG series. Check out this trailer to see how it measures up to its console cousins.

Despite being a portable title, Dragon Quest IX is perhaps the most ambitious Dragon Quest game yet, packing all the feature DQ fans love into a tiny DS cartridge, and adding in four-player cooperative multiplayer.

With more than four million copies sold in Japan, can North American sales come close? I'll definitely be in line come July 11. What about you folks?
