The previously announced expansion for Dragon Quest X, titled Dragon Quest X: The Slumbering Hero and Sworn Guiding Ally has had its launch date firmed up. The expansion will release on the 5th of December in Japan.
This gives PC players time to catch up with their Wii and Wii U brethren, with the PC version finally being released on September 26, a couple of weeks prior to the release of the expansion.
The Slumbering Hero and Sworn Guiding Ally will be sold at 3,990 yen (About $40). The Wii gets a retail version only, while both PC and Wii U players will be able to buy it either at retail or as a download.
Players can also pay 5,690 yen (about $60) to get an additional exclusive King Garden Slime downloadable NPC for their village if they purchase through Square-Enix’s online store. This is separate from the Special Pack earlier announced for PC.
