This summer, the Dragon Quest Live Spectacle Tour will turn the Dragon Quest video game series into a live stage show.

Based on the legendary RPG series with over 64 million copies sold, the stage show will combine innovative technology such as movable stage parts and projection mapping, wire-assisted action sequences, and audience participation for an immersive entertainment experience. The stage show uses the plot of Dragon Quest III as a base for its story, incorporating elements from other games in the series to create a fully-formed view of the Dragon Quest universe.

The role of Dragon Quest III main character Erdrick, selected through open auditions, will be played by Tsukasa Matsuura. Other cast members include Johnny’s actor Shunsuke Kazama as Dragon Quest VI swordsman Terry and otaku idol Shoko Nakagawa as Dragon Quest IV’s tomboyish Princess Alena, with one of the series’ most popular characters, Dragon Quest IV merchant Torneko, played by Imoaraizaka Kakaricho.

The Dragon Quest Live Spectacle Tour will debut on Friday, July 22nd at Saitama Super Arena, starting a string of 40 performances in five Japanese cities. Tickets are currently on sale to the general public.
