Dragon Quest 9 Protect Case DSi - Import Preorder

«©NCSX» Square Enix recently proclaimed that Dragon Quest IX would be a Nintendo DS exclusive. This is big news in Japan and Hori is one of the first companies to sign a licensing pact which allows them to produce and peddle assorted products based on the DQIX juggernaut.

The first DQIX product is a Nintendo DSi Protect Case which features the likeness of two Slimes on the front. Since the NDSi has a little camera on its lid, the upcoming case features a cutout so that the eye of the camera may peer through. The compatibility chart on Hori's product preorder sheet shows that the case is only for the Nintendo DSi and won't be compatible with the original Nintendo DS or the NDS Lite. This will undoubtedly put a crimp on potential sales but NCS expects all future Protect Case accessories from Hori to be NDSi exclusive.

Preorders are welcome to ship on March 28, 2009 at US$18.90 from NCS.
