Dragon Quest XI was released last Saturday. As expected, there were long lines and, at some stores, sell-outs.

Why is this character suddenly popular? It’s more than Martina being simply attractive or sexy, though fans point out that she certainly isn’t short of either!

“I started Dragon Quest XI from this morning, and the story has pulled me in. Martina is especially cute. While she’s cool and has a strong sense of justice, she sometimes shows deep empathy for others and the motion of her sex appeal skills breaks all the rules. I like her.”
