    Yep, this is the version we’re getting across the Pacific.

    Also, the Japanese launch lineup is very awesome. (I realize this will simply be a demo)

    looks good, current gen wise i hope this game get ported to other current gen platforms.

      Um dont you mean last gen? Wii U is by itself since its the new gen

      • Suicunesol

        Whether Wii U is or isn’t, DQX HD is still primarily based on the Wii game. I don’t think it was built from the ground up for Wii U, so you probably can’t call DQX “next gen”.

        Or, he meant he hopes it’s ported to PS4 or Nextbox when they come out in the current gen.

        Doubtful, but meh~

      Leveling up while lying on the bed. That’s bliss there.

    This just might be the stand-out game for Wii U.

    Well, for me it looks like an upscaled Wii game, like Dolphin does.

    Dragon Quest 8 is the reason I dislike 9 and 10.
    Hd graphics?Well it has higher resolution but the ps2(!)game looked better.

      I agree. Maybe it is just my bad memory but while the HD is nice, it just doesn’t seem any better than Dragon Quest 8, and I feel like the cel shading effect looked nicer in 8.

        Yeah it looked good,had a beautiful overworld and I loved the voice acting.But this game is WoW DQstyle…

    Looks nice, and the battle system seems interesting. I’d still preffer an off-line Dragon Quest though.
