A new kind of quest will have players teaming up with each other via Wi-Fi.
SquareEnix recently announced that Dragon Quest IX will offer a new feature called "Wi-Fi Quest". Wi-Fi Quests are co-operative quests in which players join online and complete them by playing as a team. The quests are assigned by the "World Inn Cooperative" and require large amounts of players to complete.
The first quest is already live and will continue until September 30. The goal of the quest is for players to simply upload their save file over Wi-Fi, with the goal being 500,000 uploads by the time the quest ends. The purpose of this quest is for SquareEnix to gather the player data, play rates and play trends of the popular DS title (such as where players are located, for instance).
If the goal is met, Fleurette from the Wii title Dragon Quest Swords will make a special appearance in one of the game's locales.
