Japanese clothing design company graniph has revealed its next video game collab apparel featuring the Dragon Quest series, and the clothing apparel from the “DQ+g” label includes T-shirts and sweaters with minimalist designs and clever references for the fans.
Here’s a look at some of the clothing from the Dragon Quest graniph collab:
Dragon Quest DQ+g Blouson Jacket Demon Lord
The above jacket features the demon lords from the first three Dragon Quest games. That’s Dragonlord (True Form) and Zoma in the front and Malroth in the back. The price is 11,000 yen (~$96.91) for sizes S/M/L.
Dragon Quest DQ+g Hoodie
This hoodie has the Great Sabrecub on the front and the Great Sabrecat on the back. The front pocket also has a sprite of Bianca on one side and Bianca’s Ribbon on the other. That’s an awesome reference to how you recruit the Great Sabrecat after the time skip in Dragon Quest V. The price is 6,050 yen (~$53.35) in sizes S/M/L/XL.
Dragon Quest DQ+g T-shirt – Metal Monsters
The Metal Monsters T-shirt features a bunch of Metal Slimes, Liquid Metal Slimes, and a Metal King Slime to spell out the word “Metal” in Japanese. The shirt costs 2,200 yen (~$19.41) for sizes SS/S/M/L/XL.
Dragon Quest DQ+g T-shirt – Corpse
The Corpse T-shirt is pretty hilarious. It simply has the sprite used for a dead body in the SNES Dragon Quest games. The text on the back says, “There’s no response. It’s just a corpse,” which we see in every Dragon Quest game when you try to interact with a corpse. The shirt costs 2,200 yen (~$19.41) for sizes SS/S/M/L/XL.
Dragon Quest DQ+g T-shirt – Join Party?
The “Join Party?” T-shirt shows the text that displays whenever a monster wants to join your party. It has a cute little Healslime on the back. The shirt costs 2,200 yen (~$19.41) for sizes SS/S/M/L/XL.
Dragon Quest DQ+g Long Sleeve Shirt – King Slime
The long-sleeved shirt is another clever one with a King Slime peeking out of the pocket and Slimes scattered all over. It has exactly eight Slimes on the shirt, the number needed for them to fuse into a King Slime. The price is 3,850 yen (~$33.94) and comes in sizes SS/S/M/L/XL. It also comes in kids sizes 90/100/110/120/130/140 for 3,300 yen (~$29.09).
Dragon Quest DQ+g Sweater for Kids – Become a King Slime
Lastly, the best one is only available for kids, and it is a King Slime-themed hoodie. The hood comes in the appearance of King Slime’s crown, and the inner part of the pocket is filled with Slimes. The price is 4,400 yen (~$38.81) for kids sizes 90/100/110/120/130/140.
There’s a total of 22 different clothing items for the Dragon Quest graniph clothing collab. They’ll be available to purchase on the Square Enix e-Store and official graniph store starting at 11:00 a.m. JST on December 7 until 11:59 p.m. JST on December 13, 2021.
