Dragon Quest: Your Story AKA Big Ol’ Cutscene Deluxe
The Dragon Quest movie is finally coming to Netflix! Dragon Quest: Your Story, based on Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride, was released last August in Japan. The trailers, one of which is embedded below, portray a fascinating world slightly different from the Toriyama vision we’re accustomed to.
If you’re unfamiliar with Your Story/Hand of the Heavenly Bride, they tell the tale of one young man’s whole life as a hero. The complete saga spans multiple decades, though the film likely compresses this a tiny bit. We gotta get to the juicy parts, after all. Aside from the slightly different art style, the film looks excellent.
That is, if you’re a fan of the Dragon Quest franchise, this film looks like it will resonate heavily. Japanese computer animation tends to be rather divisive, especially among diehard fans, but Your Story looks above and beyond such concerns. Dragon Quest: Your Story is coming to Netflix on February 13th, 2020. Fans looking for a more immediate DQ fix can check out the first three Dragon Quest games on the Switch, as well as Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age on the Nintendo Switch and the PS4.
