One of the Dragon Quest X Online weapons designed by Bleach manga artist Tite Kubo will return to the game. The one-handed sword Spalt Edge is one of the three collaboration weapons designed by Kubo released in 2015 for DQX Online, and it will make a reappearance soon. [Thanks, ryokutya2089!]

The weapons were originally available through download codes included in the August 2015 issue of the V Jump magazine, as well as the DQX Online third anniversary fan book. The other two Spalt weapons are the two/handed Spalt Blade and the Spalt Claws knuckle weapon.

The Spalt weapons were originally made available as part of several collaboration events in 2015. The Spalt Blade appeared in Dragon Quest X Online on July 2015, while the Spalt Edge appeared on August, and the Spalt Claws on October of the same year.

Bleach author Tite Kubo also collaborated by drawing an illustration for the Dragon Quest X Online third anniversary fan book, depicting three members of the Ogre species wielding the Spalt weapons.

Dragon Quest X Online is available only in Japan for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, Windows PC, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and mobile devices. The game originally launched on 2012 for the Wii, but online service for the Wii version terminated on 2017. Meanwhile, Dragon Quest X Offline released for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, and PC in Japan on September 15, 2022, and the game will receive an expansion in May 2023.
