Chris Winkler writes "Square Enix has revealed some new information regarding its highly anticipated DS title Dragon Quest IX. Not unlike previous series installments, the Level 5-developed title will feature a variety of optional quests. One NPC might ask for a simple errand, while another might ask the player to find a certain piece of treasure or dispose of a particular monster. Players are free to take on multiple quests simultaneously. Moreover, the decision when to complete a questis entirely up to the player."
