 Dragon Quest X  Will See Separate Wii U Edition

Dragon Quest X Will See Separate Wii U Edition

September 5, 2011 | By Mike Rose




Dragon Quest X, the next title in the long-running Japanese RPG series, will see a separate Wii U version, along with the already announced Wii edition.

Developer Square Enix confirmed during a press conference today that the game will see a version for Nintendo's upcoming console that features updated visuals compared to its Wii counterpart, reports Andriasang.

The company revealed that the game will be an online RPG, with players banding together co-operatively. The two version of the game will be cross-platform compatible, with both Wii and Wii U players existing in the same world.

There will also be some connectivity with the Nintendo 3DS, as players will be able to transfer their main character over to their handheld and move it over to a game on another Wii or Wii U console.

Dragon Quest X is a first for the series in terms of development, as Square Enix is developing the game internally for the first time, rather than outsourcing it to external studios. The game is due to be released sometime in 2012.

In a Gamasutra feature interview earlier this year, Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii explained that the series' design, which hasn't changed much since at least the SNES days, is one of the keys to its reign at the top of the Japanese charts.
