Earlier today we saw Nintendo's announcement that they're stepping up as publisher for the US market on Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies. We've also just got word they're doing the same thing here in just a few months.
This 'unique partnership' between Nintendo and Square Enix (usually distributed in Australia by Ubisoft) will see Dragon Quest IX hit stores 'Winter 2010'.
That means June-August this year, and often points more to the latter part of that window.
Mark the calendars, Dragon Quest lovers. The loose-endpoint countdown has begun.
