The Feel Of Adventure Is Alive And Well In This Dragon Quest X Expansion

By Eugene . October 15, 2013 . 1:00pm


Exploring lost continents and plundering its depths for loot is usually cause for one to have a video full of fighting and quick-cut action montages—the better to get us excited about whatever new expansion is coming out for an online RPG.


Square-Enix, however, have chosen to go with the subtle burn, instead giving us the above teaser video for their upcoming Dragon Quest X expansion. It’s the huge party of initial adventurers (including you!) who are setting off for the lost island of Rendashia in Dragon Quest X: The Slumbering Hero and Sworn Guiding Ally.


It’s a joyful, simple video full of the themes and music Dragon Quest players love, and also gives us snapshot cuts of NPCs we’ll interact with such as Mishua and Crows. I feel excited just watching this video, and it doesn’t even show any actual gameplay.It’s just a damn boat!


(It might be that happy adventuring tune that I love listening to as the ship sets sail. It’s effective at making my fingers itch to begin playing the game.)


Dragon Quest X: The Slumbering Hero and Sworn Guiding Ally will be out December 5th for PC, Wii U and Xbox 360. Note that we’re not sure if it will make it in time for the iOS version of the game.

    I’d love to play SE, I’d even pay for a subscription fee for both FFXIV: ARR and DQX, as DQ is my favorite series.
    But alas…

    And the wait continues. . .

      I know. I wish Dragon Quest did better in North America/Europe so this wouldn’t be an issue.

        It did fine in the west. Nintendo and Enix were very pleased with it.

        But its an MMO. MMO’s take forever to come over here if they dont have Final Fantasy 14 in the name.

        Just look at Phantasy Star

          You shut up about Phantasy Star! You just shut up. It’s gonna come out some day…..some day……..

  • Kaetsu

    I really wish this would come here. I love DQ!

    “Xbox 360”? I don’t think so… ;)

    I just pre-ordered the JP-version. I already own the PC version of the original game and it’s awesome (even if you don’t speak the language).

    • Rogerrmark

      The lack of feedback is killing me. Feels really disrespectful.
