Today, Square Enix unveiled additional information on how players can experience the epic Story Mode while playing as Dai, Popp, Maam, and Hyunckel in the upcoming action role-playing game, Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest - The Adventure of Dai!

In Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest - The Adventure of Dai, players will be able to relive portions of the Dragon Quest - The Adventure of Dai animated series story leading up to the battle of Sovereign Rock – offering a variety of ways for players to experience the story outside of the general gameplay.

  • In Story Mode, players won’t just experience thrilling battles, but can also follow the Adventure of Dai story with scenes and movies that recreate famous scenes from the animated series.
  • Additionally in Story Mode, the further the story progresses, the fiercer the battles against the Dark Army will become.
  • With the “Storyteller” difficulty level available, players are offered a lower difficulty in order to experience a less difficult and more story-focused action adventure.

To combat the fiercest battles against the Dark Army, players will be able to enhance each of the four heroes using the power of the bonds between them!

Introducing this game’s unique character enhancement mechanic: Bond Memories


  • The Bond Memories uses famous scenes from the Dragon Quest - The Adventure of Dai comic book, while training up the disciples of Avan to secure victory in the testing battles to come! 
  • New Memories can be obtained by progressing through Story Mode or by tackling the Temple of Recollection.
  • Equipping memories to a character will improve their capabilities in varying ways, while more memories can be equipped simultaneously as a character levels up.
  • Silver, Gold, and Platinum rarities, with effects becoming more potent as you approach Platinum. Platinum Bond Memories have unique effects!
