Dragon Quest X Wii U News Coming On February 18

By Spencer . February 6, 2013 . 2:00pm

dqxwIn Japan the Wii U Deluxe Edition has a different bonus. Instead of Nintendo Land, the Deluxe Edition includes access to the Dragon Quest X beta for the Wii U version. Famitsu Live said we’ll find out when that beta will begin and when Dragon Quest X will be available for Wii U on February 18. Nintendo says Dragon Quest X is slated for release in spring 2013.


The timing of the announcement is interesting since it’s two days before Sony Computer Entertainment will reveal the "future" of PlayStation.

    meh. I don’t care much. After how awesome DQVIII was and good IX was, looking forward to the return to a console mega awesome RPG. The online elements were a huge letdown.

  • Give us an english version. I want to play this. Mostly in my spare time, but I want it either way.

  • Sylveria

    Really couldn’t be less excited for DQX. Anyone know if it’s confirmed or not if the US version will still have a subscription fee? I haven’t been able to find anything that really sounds official.

    • Eric Harris

      me also. Much more excited for Wind Waker. I will keep an eye on DQX, but that’s about it.

    • Armane

      They haven’t even announced DQX for the US, so there wouldn’t be any official statements regarding a subscription fee.

  • $39420547

    if it has a subscription fee am not interested but if it doesn’t i will spend a lot of my time on it

    • Wake

      It’s going to be interesting what they plan to do with that. The subscription fee format has been dying, and most MMO’s are becoming free to play.

    • William Cole

      I think that if it arrives in the U.S. then the subscription will be scrapped like MH’s was. There’ all kinds of online games that don’t require subscription fees why should this game?

      • $39420547

        i hope it does
        1st i am against subscription
        2nd i can play everyday and sometimes weeks may pass by without playing so if i payed a subscription it will go to waste

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    UGH I can’t wait to play it in eng……..

  • I wish this was a Monster Hunter style game so I can have a single player playthrough as an option, I’ll keep my eye on it if free online gameplay.

    Otherwise I rather support VII 3DS.

  • Jeez. I parsed that as some weird ass Dragon Quest × Wii U announcement. Too many crossovers.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    I am still waiting for this game to come here.^_^ Even if it had subscription fee, i would still love to play DQ.^_^

  • $30632660

    I’m looking forward to DQVII, if Sqenix decides bring the Wii U version of DQX overseas, if it’s like Guild Wars 1/2 and drops the subscription fee I’ll bite, if not I couldn’t care less because I won’t be getting it then.

  • Tails the Foxhound

    I can’t help but think that any game news released within a week of the Sony event (assuming it is of course the PS4 they talk about) will just get swallowed in the wave of hype.

  • Jimmy Dean

    Bring it west and I’ll give you my money. The Wii U basically needs it over here.

  • J_Joestar

    Bring that DX bundle to NA and i’d probably bite.
