Square Enix MMORPG, Dragon Quest X: Rise of the Five Tribes Online, is getting a manga adaptation in Shueisha’s V Jump magazine later this month, according to a Manga News report (via: Anime News Network).


The series will be drawn by Yuuki Nakashima (Digimon Xros Wars) and series creator, Yuji Horii, will be supervising the manga.


Dragon Quest X crossed the 400,000 subscriber mark on the Wii last month. In Spring 2013, Square Enix will also release the game for the Wii U console.

    It’s awkward to see an MMO made by Square Enix that doesn’t suck, though I never played this one. We’ll wait.

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      As far as I can recall they’ve only made 3 MMOs, and only one of them sucked.

      • ragingmerifes

        Wakfu, FFXIV and FFXI sucked. And we could also count the Facebook ones.

        • FitzpatrickPhillips

          Wakfu wasn’t made by SE. FFXI is legendary and FFXIV sucked yeah, but thats getting remade.

          • KiTA

            Whether or not FFXI sucked depends entirely on your taste in MMORPGs. DQX is just DQIX with DQIX’s local wireless stuff expanded upon greatly, so it’s not too amazing that it doesn’t suck.

          • ragingmerifes

            FFXI is a great MMO, but a terrible FF. Wakfu was published by SE, and Concerto Gate also sucked.

        • I’m not a big Square-Enix guy, but FFXI is one of my favorite MMOs. I’m with you on the other two, though.

  • A manga about an MMO? Look out Pulitzer Prize! XD

  • I don’t care about MMOs much so this is a decent alternative for me.

    ALmost everything in Japan have manga adaptation lol. So, this should not be suprising.^_^

    • Hidayat246

      Dont forget about LN adaption lol

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Not all have LN adaptation sadly.T_T Manga is probably the way to go as it can reach almost everyone in Japan while LN is more for those small circle of people who is really following the series.^_^
