They really should have released this on PS3 and Xbox 360 to.

Actually I would have preferred if they released on PS3 and Xbox 360 instead of Wii.

wow, so underwhelming....
ni no kuni on PS3 Looks much better, so I'm very disappointed in the wiiU so far. At least match the graphics!!

I think was a wii port they decided to release on U. So of course the graphics aren't going to be the best they can be. I've never played Dragon Quest before, this might be the first one I try.

The WiiU version is pretty much a direct port of the Wii version. Real disappointing that SE is just being lazy instead of showing off what sets the WiiU apart from other consoles. Why even get the WiiU version if it's just the same game but releasing later?

I don't think the graphics are too bad. Isn't this supposed to be an MMO?

....But yes. Ni No Kuni looks MUCH better.

Still interested in this game though.

It's a wii port?!?
Why even bother?! it just made the wiiU look bad cause the graphics still suck... I think if they ported DQ8 from the PS2 would have been much better! I'd buy it since I didn't get to finish it...

Ni no kuni is a DS port dude.
EDIT this is in case anyone doubts this:

It all has to do with desire to utilize the system... for whatever reason SE decided not to vastly upgrade the appearance.

The added Gamepad support probably has something to do with that.

Where does it say it's a port? All it says is that the DS version is not getting localized because of "too many hurdles".

its not a port, those are 2 different games in the same universe

Really?
I don't think so... it is the sane game, from what I've heard. They have the same name after all.

I'll take your word for it for now, but I'm gonna look it up.

Edit: a better link(yes, it is)

Looks like you're right... although what pisses me off Is the localization discrepancy mentioned in the header.

Why the hell port it to Wii U when it still looks like a Wii game? Probably to help the sales of Wii U.

This game is gonna be awesome, as long as they don't change the gameplay like they did with FF, it will be fine. Graphics have never been what the Dragon Warrior series has ever been about.

i dont really care about the graphics... what bothers me is that its a subscription MMO
