First Dragon Quest game for the Wii

In the town at the foot of Avalonia Castle, a young man enjoys a peaceful life with his father. That young man is you. It is your sixteenth birthday at last, and time to take the Walk of the Worthy, the trial of strength which all young Avalonian males must undergo upon coming of age.

You will need to put all of your training in the ways of the sword into practice if you are to pass the test, and take your rightful place amongst Avalonia's warriors. Should you succeed – who knows what adventures await you!

And so kicks off the briefly titled DRAGON QUEST SWORDS: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors for the Wii from Square Enix, set for a May 9th release in Europe.

In DRAGON QUEST SWORDS: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors, (I’ve gotta find a decent abbreviation for that) you play the role of the hero, (obviously), and must use the Wii controller to control the legendary sword fighting off horde after horde of monsters. According to Square Enix you’ll soon be slicing at enemies, parrying with your shield and blocking attacks to launch powerful counter-combos.

Anyone familiar with the series will be glad to hear a lot of the features have made it over to the Wii such as the system to power up weapons and the ability to perform a large array of powerful attacks. Additional mini-games add to the fun as you catch darts with your shield and try to defeat Slime monsters as quickly as possible to win bonus items.
