Japanese distribution company Toho has released the first trailer for its upcoming cg animation feature Dragon Quest: Your Story to be released on August 2, 2019 in Japan.
The film is based on the 1992 game Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride originally released by Enix Corporation for the Super NES console. The game, re-released for PS2 in 2004 and for Nintendo DS in 2008, is the fifth installment in a popular series of Japanese role-playing games.
Dragon Quest Your Story is directed and written by Takashi Yamazaki (Stand by Me Doraemon, Always: Sunset on Third Street), with co-direction by Ryuichi Yagi and Makoto Hanafusa. Koichi Sugiyama is in charge of the music, which is fitting because he created the soundtrack for most games in the Dragon Quest series.
