Lawson is opening a “Dragon Quest Collaboration Shop” in Chiyoda, Tokyo on the morning of August 22 at 7:00 a.m., the Japanese convenience store franchise announced.
In reality, this isn’t the opening of a brand new shop, but rather the “Dragon Quest-ification” of an existing shop—specifically, the 3 Chome-1-10 Sotokanda shop, which is seven minutes walking distance from JR Akihabara Station.
The outside of the shop will be decorated in Dragon Quest-themed “Castle” imagery, and original Slime bags will be given out to customers. Slime monster-themed fans will also be given out as presents to customers who spend more than 500 yen, as well (one per customer).
Given that this is all in promotion of the August 27 release of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King for 3DS, customers who purchase the game at Lawson will get an original sticker featuring a Slime monster wearing a Lawson uniform.
The store will also sell Dragon Quest goods, including face towels and mugs, WebMoney cards, and more. There will also be StreetPass data distribution to obtain an item in Dragon Quest VIII on August 27 (available until November 1).
