Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii made an appearance in this morning’s Nintendo 3DS Direct for third party publisher games to talk about the Nintendo 3DS version of Dragon Quest X. Meanwhile, Inside Games grabbed a few screencaps from the stream.
During the Nintendo Direct stream, Yuji Horii stated that Dragon Quest X is a title he’s been wanting to put on the Nintendo 3DS since back when Square Enix were still developing the game, and now it’s finally happening.
Dragon Quest X was made for players to be able to play the MMORPG more comfortably with the 3DS, while aiming to attract new players to the game. The 3DS version will have content up to the Ver. 2 major update.
The smartphone version of the game, which also uses cloud streaming like the 3DS, has yet to add the Ver. 2 update, so unless it sees the update before September, the 3DS version will be ahead.
You can check out the trailer in our earlier post containing this morning’s Nintendo Direct presentation, with some Dragon Quest X footage at the 6:45 mark in the video.
Dragon Quest X for Nintendo 3DS will be released on September 4, 2014 in Japan.
