If you’re in the UK and heading to Hyper Japan 2016 this weekend get ready to bust some slimes, as Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past will be playable on the show floor.

The Hyper Japan festival takes place from July 15th to the 17th at the Olympia, London. Nintendo has a pretty strong presence this year, featuring the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Paper Mario: Color Splash, Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice and many, many more. The Nintendo booth is where players will be able to pick up and play the 3DS version of Dragon Quest VII for the first time, two months ahead of the game’s September 16th launch.

Those who can’t make it to Hyper Japan shouldn’t worry, however, as Nintendo will be running a 5 hour stream on Saturday from 10:00am GMT. Dragon Quest VII will be taking center stage at 12:15pm, so be sure to tune into Nintendo UK’s Twitch channel if you want to see more of the game in action.
