Magician’s Quest: Mysterious Times!

Thanks to fellow blogger YvoCaro (please check out her blog here, she is awesome!) I learned of a Nintendo DS game called Magician’s Quest: Mysterious Times. It was released in North America in 2009, and it sounds like an amazing game! describes the game like this: “As players attend Magic Academy, they’ll be immersed in a living, breathing world where time flows as it does in the real world, and each week, player’s wizardry skills are put to the test in a new magical adventure. Custom avatars can be made with 1,500 varieties of clothing, furniture and characters to choose from. Additionally, players can learn new magic spells and abilities by forming different bonds with the 150 unique characters populating the world. Different stories and adventures will be revealed depending on what bonds are formed with the game’s characters and how the player chooses to solve each of the 52 adventures. Use more than 100 magic spells to become the greatest magician of all time!”

This sounds like an awesome mix between Animal Crossing, The Sims, Harry Potter, etc.! I don’t know how this game managed to slip under my radar for so long. Nevertheless, I decided I wanted the game for myself. Amazon had a few copies for sale that were a bit on the pricey side (and they were cartridge-only, no box!) and eBay had one for around $25. Luckily, a GameStop somewhat close to me happened to have a copy for sale with the box and instruction manual still intact for only $10!

What a deal! I can’t play it just yet while waiting for my hand to heal up, but I’m looking forward to diving in to it! There are several other Magician’s Quest games, but they were only released in Japan. After playing this one, there is a strong possibility I will check out the Japanese versions as well! 😉

P.S. As a bonus at GameStop, I bought this cute piggy shaped… thing that is supposed to prop your phone or other device up. I don’t know how much I’ll actually use it, since I have a holder that works quite well, but it was only $1.79 so I couldn’t resist! I stuck it to my wall, and it looked pretty funny. What can I say, I’m easily amused!

  1. You got the first game !!! I’m so exited for you, nothing better then to discover a new game and know there’s an entire series ahead! I’m glad I mentioned them to you. Keep it mind that the first one is a bit more basic then the others, still a perfect place to start!

    1. I agree! I’m so excited for this series! I don’t mind that this one is more basic than the others- that will give me a good foundation and help me play the others in Japanese a little easier 😉

  2. Oh! I’ve had Magician’s Quest for years now! I love the look of it and how it reminds me of Animal Crossing! However, I got stuck in it I remember. Maybe I should go back and try playing it again. Have you played it yet?

    1. That’s cool that you have the game as well! I can’t believe I had never heard of it before. It does look super cute! I have not had a chance to play it yet but I’m hoping to get to it soon. That would be cool for you to go back and play it again! I know sometimes when I go back to play a game I haven’t played in awhile, I totally forget what I was doing! 🙂

      1. yeah, I always forget what I was doing too in any game I haven’t played in over a week.. ha ha.. My memory is bad. So I usually have to either start over or really study my buttons and moves again. I end up starting over in a lot of my games sadly. Yeah, I’m really glad you have Magician’s Quest now! Awesome… Can’t wait til you get to play it!

      2. Haha! That’s exactly why I try to finish games, or else it’s hopeless! Take The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Wii) for example. I started that game many years ago but never finished. I tried to start it back up a few months ago, but had NO CLUE what I was doing! I’ll be starting that over when I’m in the mood again 😦

      3. ha!! I started The Legend of Zelda on Wii too years ago and never finished it either and it is a fun game!! It has been waiting on me for so long!! It is still sitting on the shelf. I thought about trying it back up this summer sometime. Good luck with your Zelda too. ha ha.

      4. I think there is also another new Zelda coming out later. At least that’s what my son said. He is interested in it. The Legend of Zelda. I think it’s called? Not sure. But it’s coming out on Wii U.
