Free 3DS app due on August 22 in Japan.

Square Enix is planning a 3DS companion app for Wii’s Dragon Quest X: Rise of the Five Tribes Online. The 3DS app can be downloaded free of charge on August 22 using a redeem code included with the August 2 due Wii game.

The app, titled Dragon Quest X: Convenient Tool for Starting Adventurers, offers the following functionality:

  • Post Office: write letters using special stationary on your 3DS and send them to friends.
  • Travelers Bazaar: see what’s for sale at the bazaars in each contintent. (Players cannot actually purchase anything.)
  • Friend Information: check whether a friend is playing Dragon Quest X and view their information.
  • Support Partner Hire Information: check how often your character is being recruited as a support mate to other players.
  • StreetPass: if players pass each other in the street, the app will register each other’s data. If you happen to pass each other both in real life and in Dragon Quest X itself, which is called “Double Passing,” something “cool” will happen.

View screenshots of the app at the gallery.

Thanks, 4Gamer.net.

    Now this app is a nice touch to the game. More games should do this!
