Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai
Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai (インフィニティ ストラッシュ ドラゴンクエスト ダイの大冒険) is a console action videogame adapting The Adventure of Dai. It was originally announced alongside Xross Blade and A Hero's Bonds, as a "console game" to be released in 2021. However it was delayed citing graphical improvments. It is developed by Game Studio and KAI GRAPHICS, and published by Square Enix. The game still doesn't have a release date, but it's set to release worldwide on Switch, PS4, PS5 and PC via Steam.
Unlike the other Dai games, Infinity Strash takes inspiration directly on the original manga, while the other games are inspired by the recent anime adaptation.
Infinity Strash is an action game in which the player can control characters from The Adventure of Dai and face off against foes.
The game has two mode:
- Story Mode: a retelling of the classic manga storyline. This mode lets players experience the story of the manga up until the “Battle of Sovereign Rock Castle” arc. Players can run through fields while controlling the disciples of Avan and battle powerful enemies. This mode includes CGI scenes trying to recapture the feel of the 2020 anime.
- Temple of Memories: an original dungeon which remixes enemies and mechanics each time the player enters the dungeon. Players can make certain choices during their time at the temple determine the kind of mechanics and enemies they might encounter.
There is a growth system called Bond Memories which allow players to equip mementos in order to increase their character's stats depending on the linked memory. Each memory shows an image from the original manga upon getting obtained.
