Dragon Quest The Adventure Of Dai: A Hero's Bond Gets A Global Release This Month

After being initially slated for a Japanese release only, publisher Square Enix and developer DeNA has revealed that the English version of Dragon Quest The Adventure Of Dai: A Hero's Bond will be available globally on both Android and iOS this September 28, 2021.


Dragon Quest The Adventure Of Dai: A Hero's Bond is a new team action role-playing game which is based on the timeless manga masterpiece and critically acclaimed animated series, Dragon Quest The Adventure Of Dai. There is a lane-based warfare system in the game, which involves you sprinting towards your opponents and shifting the position of your squad to deal with the adversaries ahead of you the most effectively. Players will also be able to launch attacks against their opponents by tapping on the cards that appear at the bottom of the screen. As you might think, you'll be able to improve your equipment and characters through incremental upgrades, thus this appears to be more or less a gacha game where you'll be able to collect weaponry.

To celebrate the announcement of the game's launch date, Square Enix has revealed a new trailer which features some gameplay footage, a few characters, and more. As it seems, the game will be following the same story plot from the animated series of the similar name, allowing players to relive the legend of The Adventure of Dai, re-made and optimized for mobile platforms. Even though the game will be free to play, it remains to be seen how awful the monetization will become in the West.


It has also been confirmed by the developers that the game will be featuring an auto-battle mode. There will also be a co-op play that allows players to join and party up with two other friends and face off against a never ending horde of enemies. Here are some highlights and key features about the game via its store pages:


  • Test your reflexes in this team action RPG!
  • Control a team of three characters and battle endless hordes of enemies.
  • Upgrade your weapons, equipment, and attacks to defeat your foes.
