A Guide in Purchasing in the SQ Store

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!...So I decided to make this helpful guide for those who want to purchase the game through the Japanese Square Enix store. Some people had trouble getting the game through there and I had some annoying troubles myself, but its actually quite simple and easier than amazon i think. Here are the Steps.
 

 

 

Step 1: Make sure you have a japanese square enix account, if you don't you can simply make one here..

https://secure.square-enix.com/account/app/svc/register?lng=ja&rgn=jp&ref=cis_jp&svcgrp=Service_SEJ
 

 

Step 2. You're gonna need a VPN to get by the ip block that the site has. It won't let you continue the purchase if your outside of japan. So lets go ahead and download Soft Ether VPN. Once you have it installed, open it up and find a japanese ip to connect to and make sure the connection has a reasonably good line speed. If you can't find one that's fast enough connect to another one until you get one that has a decent speed. Once your connected, head over to the Square Enix E-Store.

Step 3. OK, now that your on the SQ Store, login into your SQ account and once your logged in..Scroll down until you see "Dragon Quest X" click it, on the left side click Product Download (ダウンロード商å“) then right below, Download Sales (ダウンロード販売).

Now you're on the page where you see all the digital games you can download. Obviously your gonna click on Dragon Quest X. You can either get the All-In-One package or buy them separately. I think the All-in-one comes with The base game and Version 2 expansion, but not 100% sure. But it seems everyone bought the All-in-one edition, so just go ahead and buy that one.

Step 4. So now we can go ahead make the purchase. Once you clicked on the Dragon Quest X All-In-One download. Click on the cart to continue.

Step 5. So now you can fill out the information that's given. Ignore the ones that I scribbled out or X'd out. Scrolled down and put in a fake Japanese phone number in the same format you see below and an your e-mail address down below. Next up, payment method. You basically have two options here, Credit Card or Crysta. You can used your credit card or debit card, SE does take foreign cards. If you want to use the Crysta option, then you must make sure you have enough Crysta to purchase the game. If not.. then enter your credit card information. Its funny how the site blocks you from buying the game but it accepts foreign cards lol. Anyways... Once you chosen your payment method click the blue button. If you're in page 4 of the payment process then you have successfully bypass the ip block and you can finalize your payment. Click the Orange button.  If you landed on the 5th part of the payment process..Congratz, your payment was successful and you can now download the game and install it. Your product key will be e-mailed to you. You can also check your key on the SQ Store account up top next to where is says E STORE. And That's it!....I hope this guide was helpful. Let me know if i missed anything. :P

Maybe this guide can help me get V3... I bought All-In-One from their spite without problem, but V3 had been a pain.

 

Either way, I won't buy it for a while. I still have to get a good laptop if I'm going to play when I'm our for work.

You need something called Akamai NetManager to download it from the Square Enix store. It downloads a zip file, which you can then use to install version 2. I had to do this through VPN, but once the zip is downloaded you can install the rest and patch on your own connection.

If I downloaded the DQX trial will I have to redownload the game again if I get the full version? or do I just need to put in the game key and I get access to everything that was locked prior? Either way, thanks for this guide! I was worried on how I would go about buying this game, but not anymore :)

Not sure what kind of error I got but when I tried to purchase DQX on the store I got some kind of error on both the pre-order of the new All-in-One, and the old All-in-One. I put in all the info correctly, and even got past the IP block with VPN but once I hit that button to check out and buy, the Bank Verification seemed to glitch and push me back to Step 3 of the order process. Anyone know what I may have run into and how I might be able to remedy it?

Square Enix Store no longer accepts foreign credit cards (it must have been a recent change of policy) - you can purchase Webmoney off game exporters like Play Asia, then apply Webmoney points to Crysta (= SQ store currency). I believe that's the only way to get the download version right now, for those of us with foreign credit cards.

If I wasn't unemployed right now I would seriously consider taking the plunge and giving DQX a shot.

I have the old digital Version 1 & 2 All-In-One package for PC. I just got back into the game, and I'd love to continue playing. However, upon dying the game has decided to send me to one of the Version 2 maps, and apparently I don't have the expansion installed. Oh well, I thought - I'll just go install it. However, when trying to run the Version 2 installer, I get a message saying the install file cannot be found. I can only imagine that when I copied the installer to my portable drive, it didnt' copy properly. Unfortunately I no longer have access to the drive where I originally downloaded it. Is there any way to get a new copy of the installer without buying the game again? @Ashes @Aeana @Cranberry @Mimas

 

EDIT/UPDATE: So I tried uninstalling the game and installing from scratch and now I can't even get Version 1 to install. Same error. WTF? I'm pretty sure I used this same copy of the file to install it the first time (on this computer). To add insult to injury, I know I still have the original copy of the download on another hard drive. Said hard drive went missing when I was forced to move a couple weeks ago without notice.

OK, so now I'm trying to buy the v1-4 All-In-One (I didn't own V3 or V4 anyway...) but the Square Enix Store is giving me grief. I'm accessing it through my VPN (AWS), but it appears to be telling me I'm not allowed to buy from where I'm accessing the site. Any suggestions?

^^^This is the error I get when trying to continue to step 4.^^^

 

I already bought the Crysta for it and that's the last of my budget that can be spent on this right now.

 

EDIT: I installed SoftEther and it allowed me to finish purchasing the game. Dunno why I'm seeing different results with it than AWS (I'm pretty sure I pumped all my internet traffic through AWS while trying to buy the game, so it shouldn't have detected that I was outside Japan). I'm downloading the Akamai NetSession installer now, as the Square Enix Store appears to require it for downloads, now. Done, downloading the game now.
