Today’s Daily Briefs:
- Dragon Quest
- Nintendo 2DS
In Japan, the Dragon Quest series is celebrating its 30th Anniversary. To celebrate, Square-Enix has prepared various things, ranging from games to real-life events. One of them is a museum/exposition, which is held from July 24th to September 11th in Shibuya.
To go with this event, Square-Enix launched a promotional campaign last week. Until September 12th, at some stations, trains play the (extremely famous) main theme of the series when doors close. It’s definitely going to please tourists, but not sure commuters and train station staff will not grow to hate the damn thing before the end of this Summer!
