Following the launch of the Square Enix action RPG Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest The Adventure of Dai, it has received mixed to negative reception from fans and newcomers alike for countless, saddening reasons.
In fact, the distaste for this title is so prominent that in Japan, with presumably low sales, retailer Rakuten has discounted physical copies of the game on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch to a whopping 50% off. To emphasize the absurdity of this scenario, it’s worth mentioning that the game only launched roughly two weeks ago, on September 28, 2023.
Further, Amazon Japan, while only discounting the title to 39% off, does have rather low user reviews, with the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch versions at 1.8, 1.7, and 2.0 stars, respectively.
These user reviews don’t beat around the bush in terms of reception, as many question the point of the game’s initial delay when considering the quality of its release. Additionally, there’s a mention of the Dragon Quest Dai: A Hero’s Bonds mobile game, which shut down back in April of this year, having more soul than this console release and yearning for refunds.
Our review of Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest The Adventure of Dai is not so different. The abysmal storytelling, nonexistent weight of combat, and questionable sense of progression make the experience not enjoyable in the slightest.

Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest The Adventure of Dai, Dai and his new friends unite as they focus their efforts on defeating the revived Demon King Hadlar. On the way, they learn more about the world and their places in it and greet new party members as the threats become increasingly severe. The narrative adapts up to the Sovereign Rock Castle arc.
Players can experience the game either through Story Mode for classic progression or through the Temple of Recollection, a constantly changing dungeon with challenging monsters. Additionally, an integral facet of this game is Bond Memories, accessories with the double purpose of strengthening characters and housing scenes from the manga series as they’re unlocked. The Temple of Recollection can make these items even more potent, too.
Infinity Strash: Dragon Quest The Adventure of Dai is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
