The PlayStation 4 has been slimed

2 min read


Or at least this special edition of it looks like it’s been thrown into the wrong end of a slime party, something you do not want to find yourself in when in Japan, trust me on this. There’s a new Dragon Quest hitting the Sony console. And of course, there’s a nifty version of that machine coming out tied to that game. But you can’t have it.

Announced at the Tokyo Games Show Sony conference yesterday, the Dragon Quest Heroes PlayStation 4 console will feature a different paint job, some slight decal work and an adorable Slime mascot oozing away on top of the console. Pics here, from AGB:

As for the game itself, Dragon Quest Heroes is more or less a stab at some of that 1 vs too damn many action made popular by the Dynasty Warriors series. Koei Tecmo is producing this one and the game could give the Sony console the boost it needs in Japanese markets, because if there’s one thing that those folks like besides questionable anime content, it’s games that are kind of like Dynasty Warriors.

The only downside however? There’s little to buggerall chance that this console will ever make it to the west, outside of a very expensive import. It’s a limited edition PS4 without a date or price tag, so who knows when exactly this will even arrive, is another question.

But on the plus side, at least not owning this console should result in you not having to explain the strange ooze on your machine.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    Really not sure how I feel about the DQ Musuo game…Maybe I’m still butthurt that we haven’t gotten DQ 7 or the fact that DQ took such a radical turn into MMO land. Apparently the director said its not a full on Musuo game but it certainly looks like one. All I want is DQ7…Seriously now SE , Why are you keeping this in Japan and just releasing awful mobile ports of DQ games. I mean…A mobile version of DQ 8…SIES!!!

      Companies can be strange. I was under the impression DQ was getting a massive following in the West…so why keep it in the East then? Makes no business sense unless the localisation is a massive issue but that I don’t see as they have been dealing with that for years now.

        Nope doesn’t seem so. SE came out and said they’re afraid that DQ7 won’t sell here in the west…Understandable though. DQ 8 for comparison sold over 3 mil in Japan and I think almost a mil in the rest of the world..

      Six months ago I lost my job and after that I was fortunate enough to stumble upon a great website which literally saved me. I started working for them online and in a short time after I’ve started averaging 15k a month. The best thing was that cause I am not that computer savvy all I needed was some basic typing skills and internet access to start… This is where to starthttp://www.onlinejob/2014/7/9……,,,..

    Can someone please explain to me the link between Dragon Quest and Slime?

    • The little Slime dudes are a traditional enemy that you face in the series. Like a bukkake party, gone wrong.

        What is bukkake party? Is it like a LAN party?

        • Sageville

          Its about the same as a lemon party….

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Oh… LIKE YOU DIDN’T KNOW.

  • Actually rather cool

  • FoxOneZA

    Just last week I was talking about a slime edition console 😛

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    That silver is rather stylish…. 😮

  • To each their own, I suppose, but I’ll definitely be taking a pass on this one.
