Megaton!! Dragon Quest X was just announced for Wii!
YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!
I added the translated source at the top
What else can you expect from Square Enix these days?
Well I have another reason to play my Wii..^.^ but im sure it wont be anything close to what DQ8 was..SE better not f*ck up on this one...
Probably figured its time to sell some games instead of making crap, actually the only DQ game I've played is by Level-5 (Dragon Quest 8). So I can't even tell if this is gonna turn out good since Square Enix is gonna make it.
What a phucking joke. I'm not going to buy a Wii man, just stop it. I hate SE.
Good news to wii owners and nintendo. I'm gonna be like most of these sad fanboys that throw their toys out of the pram everytime something doesn't get a realease on the ps3. The HD have done nothing to advance the RPG genre this gen except bring pretier graphics so i'll be happy to give square the chance to see if they can advance the genre with a next gen control system.
Great decision businesswise and for japan. For the rest of the world, this news sucks. No ps3 no 360? Why
Never played a DQ game but the other ones looked good and now its comming to Wii so I might.
And I simply couldn't bring myself to go any further. It was one of the most boring games I've played in recent memory. And I really tried to enjoy the game. I must've started a new file 3 or 4 times over the course of a year, each time getting a bit further, but finally I just gave up.
you actually played 4 hours? i cound't play for 30 minutes... although i was a FF black guard at the time, and cound't play anything that was not a FF... anyway, i the drought of RPGs for Wii DQ10 is a good addtion, just hope it stays with the classic mechanic, it was ankward to play DQ swords...
maybe im going to be minority here..but actually...whats so awesome about this? I just dont care for DQ or Wii ....what a waste ...could have been soo much better on ps3/360 but anywaysr..enjoy the "megaton" wii fans
Dragon Quest 8 was develop by Level 5(White Knight Developers) and that was the best JRPG Square Enix has release in the pass 10 years personally for me. If it not being made by Level 5, then [email protected]#K it.
Level 5 really made DQ8. Which is why it was such a fantastic game that put DQ on/back on the map. Aside from whoever is on the Final Fantasy team it seems SE can't really pull off anything special, or that good anyway. So DQ+SE=lackluster imho. They might be able to pull off an ok game, but Wii? Leaves me having no interest. PS360 for me. And I'd be willing to bet DQ will hit the bargain bin w/in a couple months on the Wii because Wii gamers, aside from the Core few, just aren't interested in this kind of game, or so it seems imo.............
I agree. Why waste time on the Wii? I guess it will sell well in Japan though. Nevermind. Make an inferior version and turn a profit. D1cks. Also, DQ8 is not the best JRPG SE has made lately. Did you play Kingdom Hearts 1 or 2?
" Make an inferior version and turn a profit. D1cks. " LOL, seriously people are cute at times. Profits? THEY WANT PROFITS?! OMG NOOO WAAAAYY. BWAHAHAH, ignorant kids.
if you don't care about DQ or wii, why are you commenting here? like a character of another SE game said "i don't get ppl, never have, never will..."
"And I'd be willing to bet DQ will hit the bargain bin w/in a couple months on the Wii because Wii gamers, aside from the Core few, just aren't interested in this kind of game, or so it seems imo............. " Yeah that must be true especially when you look at all the killer RPG's they've released for Wii that havent sold at all..... How stupid... Trolls belong in the other area.. First MH3 now DQ10. I guess it must suck being a PS3 only troll because you'll seriously limit yourself on the amount of quality games you play. You may talk about PS3360 but I bet you're crying over every 360 RPG Sqaure is making for them also.
Well of course you dont care for it because you own a ps3, not a wii. If Dragon Quest came out on ps3, I wouldnt care either. Simple logic.
Now for my comment this is horrible! I hate dragon quest why not just make a FFXIII incarnation like agito? Why me, WHY MEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
is Level 5 developing this game and Square Enix will be publishing it or is Square Enix developing it. Base on Square Enix recent track record of JRPG, I will have to see a lot more, and would have to play this game first before deciding to buy another Wii to play it. Or I might just borrow my nephew Wii to play it
I was wondering that myself.If Level 5 is making it,I will buy it day one but if Enix branches are making it,I may hold my money. @The Hater Hmmm...mixed emotions right now.The new Dragon Quest on Wii is an honor and great for keeping my Wii but without Level 5 making it...I'll wait and see. edit:Agreed.Hell Level 5 took an unknown franchise in the west and made it good enough to sell hundreds of thousands of copies.I think that Square Enix and Sony could benefit so much if either one of them buys or merges with Level 5.Hopefully someone like Level 5 is making DQX and not a crap developer like Cavia.
It seems that Square Enix is developing it. If Level 5 was making it, I would think they would have been at the press conference or Square Enix would have announce that Level 5 is developing it. Edit: @Steven Colbert I know dude. If level 5 was making this baby, I would have been all over it, and would have been a day out buy without watching any video or screen shot. I would just need a release date :)
The hardcore have known about Dragon Quest when it was Dragon warrior here...Also I am sure many people bought this game without caring about Level 5s involvement. I know I didnt buy it for those reasons. It was because it was my first chance to play a new DragonQuest(Warrior) in many years
Japanese Release Dates For Dragon Quest Dragon Quest VII -> 2000 Dragon Quest VIII -> 2004 Dragon Quest IX -> 2009 Dragon Quest X -> 2013? 2014? Who Cares?
the biggest complaint about the wii is its graphical capabilities now in this case it is its greatest strength.The release date of 2013-1014 would be realistic if they were developing the game for hd consoles not the wii.It does not take that long to make a game for the wii.The hardware isn't that powerful that you need to spend a lot of mony or time develpoing extremely detailed assets for the game as you would have to on either the ps3 or 360. And in reply to another comment i read earlier.Atlus will most likely not have person 5 on the ps3 because of development costs if it wanted to get it on there it would have done so already or made some announcement.Atlus isn't big enough to incur the costs of developing for the HD consoles.And every one of their 360 releases have been tagged as having sub-standard graphics which won't do much better on the ps3 as its more complex and time consuming to program for.The ps3 doesn't have a lead.Atlus will stick to ps2 wii and handheld development for the foreseeable future most likely unless there si a hug change in the current global economic status.
FFCC says hello from 3 years of development..With nothing to show for it..I'd say with an announcement now the game is already in the works. If they really try to use the Wii to its fullest and not just crappy PS2 graphics then it will take some time.. If FFCC ever sees the light of day it will be a good indication of how DQ10 will be.
We can expect an underdeveloped RPG with Square-Enix's recent releases.
That it will be made with UE3 so it will appeal to us Western gamers cause all we like is UE3!
This and monster hunter tri are gonna kill the charts
That really sucks... I don't have a Wii.:(
lol @ another square game not being for PS3 fuuck you SE anyways congrats wii owners
Finally Wii owners you get to see how Home console Dragon Quest games are! Just picture yourself playing the ps1/ps2 version but now on the Wii!
WTF??? Why SE why?? Why not the next-gen hardware.. why not Level-5?? WTF is wrong with square!!? EDIT : To all those that gave me thumbs down : You are not a true gamer, you don't support technological advancement in games and support monopoly-move-lovers companies done by SE and EA!!
The costs outweigh the benefits now...struggling economy, more people with wiis.
so ppl that brought the PS2 last-gen dind't supported technological advancement? the PS2 was the weakest of the 3 back then... and in fact, consoles was never about graphs, it was about gameplay, graphics are on PC go see the graphics of Call of duty on a X360 or PS3 and then get one on full high on the PC, you will see what i mean...
Consoles have ALWAYS been about graphics, and stepping them up each generation. The difference between a PS2 and an xbox last gen was NOTHING compared to the difference between a Wii and PS3. Just looking at the visuals on Wii games makes my stomach spasm. It's like we are going backwards, next gen we'll be back to cartridges! I'll be skipping DQ10.
maybe the rumor of Level 5 might make console rpg exclusively for Sony after white knight story is true, which is why they won't be making any more rpg for SE beside handheld games.
DQ has always been an story > graphic/game-play title. So as long as it got good story, Wii maybe a good choice to produce without worry they cant make next-gen graphic stander. Beside SE's next gen staff is pretty busy with the current title. (PS3:all resources on FF13; X360: SO4 and perhaps LR patch?)
you don't even know what you're talking about right? have you ever played a DQ game to begin with? IGN review of DQVIII: The only exception in the game's mass list of progression (there always seems to be one), is the plotline. Of course, the Dragon Quest series has never really been the pinnacle of storytelling in the first place, but Journey of the Cursed King is particularly basic when it comes to the narrative. Truth be told, it's mostly generic RPG fare the majority of the way through, and it's certainly among the most predictable stories I've seen in quite some time (minus two or three little twists). But the fascinating thing is, and I mentioned this earlier, Level-5 has taken an adventure that we've otherwise seen several times before and turned it into something fun and entertaining -- in spite of its broad commonality with other RPGs. http://ps2.ign.com/articles...
Why wasn't Dragon Quest IX announced on the Wii to begin with? That is lame as fvck.
DQ ALWAYS comes out on the most popular device at said time. DS and now Wii. The problem is DQ isn't as popular a title anymore. make it DQ: Monster Hunter/PSU or DQ:WoW and then Square might have something.
Did you know that in Japan DQ is bigger than FF? When a DQ game is release on Japan that day turns instantly into a holiday day...
but just to support the series,it actually did well before square merged with enix. japan practically had holidays to coincide with a dragonquest game and it's more supported than FF.even square moved the release away one time of their game to not get stomped on by enix's game. level 5 did a great job.but it's not like enix didn't do a good job before them.looking at the list of each game enix made of the series... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... the game was a multi million selling series before level 5 did it.level 5 just ....HELPED.....not created the series. but i will get white knight as i know level 5 can make fun games.just don't prop them up like this even though square is being a punk towards ps3 development.supporting is good,but don't overhype level 5. and as you know,i'm one of the biggest supporters of ps3 on this site.notice the bubbles? apocalypse...............
Er, Enix never developed a DQ title in house. They always outsourced the work. Level 5 helped to bring the title into the modern era, so they did a lot for the franchise. Add to the fact that they are probably one of the best Japanese RPG developers around, and you can't help but give them props.
no matter *WHO* made it for enix,it wasn't like they didn't do a good job before level 5.it still sold millions and the games were considered great. just because level 5 may not make it doesn't mean it won't be good.that's what i'm saying.level 5 is a good developer,but no developer should be overhyped. if they decide to put it on wii.hey,can't stop them from doing it.but the question is "is there a market for the game outside japan being that most wii players like the casual stuff and not the traditional games that are played without the "waggle?" waggle games have done better than regular games this gen.wii fit and wii sports show that to be true.it's the same on 360 where a shooter will sell more than a platformer.hope they know what they are doing by releasing it on wii. apocalypse................
And I bet KH3 will be on Wii too. F*** Square again. PS3 is not gonna be taken advantage off by any dev except Sony. More gimped games. I hope Atlus puts Persona 5 on PS3 and takes advantage of that Blu-ray space. Edit: Disagree? I guess you either love DQX with last-gen technology or DQX with the same amount of content that fits on a DVD9. Either that or you want the Persona series to be held back for those that are too cheap to buy a PS3.
I think we're all just bitter about the job situation right now. If they release it on the Wii, they're guaranteed sales. Then again, the first two Kingdom Hearts sold extremely well on the PS2. I WANT IT NOW!
2 cheap to buy a PS3? That's by far most people with consoles you do realise. I wouldn't buy one unless I was loaded. I could get one 2day if I wanted, fact is, like the millions who haven't either, there's no real incentive to. Don't get all upset about Square making a game that won't cost them a ridiculous of money to develop awwww! Square are just trying to make money, like all businesses. I know you can't handle that because they don't wanna make games for a console in third place but it's for their own good
but yeah your edited comment isn't too nice.For one the wii being a lower spec machine won't need quite as much space to hold the entire game.Twilight princess with its realistic art style could fit onto a 1.5 gb disc and the game was 60-70 hours long whcih is good length.Thw wii has 8.5 gb i believe on its optical disc which easily allows for a lot of content much more than a game developed for the 360 could.so its nto a fair comaparison. And in what world is it true that if you don't support a particular console you aren't a hardcore gamer? The ds has more games and more hardcore games than the psp.yet people here call the ds a casual crappy system purely based on its graphical capabilities. There are lots of people out there who love gaming, but does it mean they ahve to give up their har earned cash just to enjoy once in while or a few hours every day.After the system is bought , you have to throw in the money for each game which is expensive. And there are far too few games that more than one person in a family can enjoy.the ps3 isn't a social console and it is stuck with it for a while.I have nothing against the ps3 just to amke that clear. edit: and this is an hinest question that i don't think has ever gotten agood enough answer....How has HD and the higher spec of the ps3 allowed it to push gaming boundaries? I honestly don't see it.Blu ray allows for more data, i see that but don't see how high resolution is oushing gaming boundaries or better physiscs even for that matter.Are your games more fun because the crates and barrels explode with realistic physics? A game built around physics yeah thats good and that been done last gen too. smarter Ai, haven't really seen that one yet, evn in force unleahsed or gta 4 with their advanced engines that were so hyped. I still manage to kill of the nemies just as easily as ever.
but i just hope that kh3 comes out for the 360 or ps3 prefer both. i dont really like playing the game but i have a lot of friends that do and i just like watching the cutscene's but i dont want to watch them in sd
I just want KH3 on the PS3. If they want to make a 360 port, that's fine...but I want the best possible experience I can out of Kingdom Hearts. Nomura's a smart man. He'll do what's best. Whether that means it comes out on Wii to save Square Enix and keep jobs or on the PS3/360 to beautify it...it will be a fantastic game.
Think for a long minute here my friend, who has the more suitable audience for a game feature cute anime and Disney characters? Who is currently the market leader in Japan as well????
the wii is a giimick that doesnt deserve the sales that its got. Its a damn shame they release dq10 on the waggle stick console.
Gimmicks don't last 3 years long without showing any signs of slowing down! Lets find something else to call the Wii. How about this one.... Success :)
really. Businesses cannot afford to ignore the market leader and survive in these tough economic conditions. If there was ever any doubt as to which console won Japan, here's your answer.
This game alone will sell 1 million more Wii's in Japan. The Japanese will go apeshite for this. It's over.
Square clearly does. I mean who wouldn't rather earn a few million bucks than push the boundaries of gaming and earn less?
good news, to bad its for the Wii. A step backward.
You are extrmely uninformed.... DQ was on Nes,PS1,PS2 and DS.. Never on PS3 or 360... How can someone be so ignorant of gaming as to think putting the game on a console more powerful then any previous console it has been on is a step backwards??NM forget I asked that.. If you are domb enough to think what you are saying has any merit then you are also dumb enough to come back with some really lame BS and think it too has some merit..
So far this generation, the next gen consoles have not done anything to revolutionize the Japanese rpg genre. So stop saying that it will be a step back when PS2 rpgs are far better than what is offered now on the HD platforms!
You don't deserve anything. Not even a scrap of a game. You deserve to be shat on for your stupidity in buying a Wii and expecting games. Now you have one that's 4 or more years away, and that's one that won't benefit from PS3's superior tech. All the RPGs should have been on PS3 to begin with - they flop HARD on Wii60.
Okay look at how many rpgs/jrpgs have been released for the hd consoles, not that damn many. The ps2 rpgs are better than any on the hd consoles. The ps2 has been out almost 9 yrs, this generation consoles 3-4 so yeah, yah think. It's a bit stupid to try and compare the 2 generations when the main rpgs haven't even been released yet and not all the rpg makers have switched to the next gen yet. Now when the ps3/xbox 360 is 5-9 years old then you can actually have a semi-decent comparison. Funny disgaea 3, eternal sonata, and folklore didn't have anything i would call that revolutionary and yet i enjoyed each of them. Lastly the hd consoles have done nothing to revolutionize jrpgs and the ps2 did what exactly to revolutionize jrpgs, oh yeah graphical upgrades. Final fantasy x played very similar to 7 and 8, the xenosaga series played similar to xenogears. Typically when jrpgs try new or revolutionary things in their games it has a chance of pissing their fans off big time. So how is the wii going to revolutionize jrpgs, instead of pressing a button to attack/use a spell you swing your arm/stab/thrust towards the tv with the wiimote? Since the next gen consoles haven't really revolutionized jrpgs, the ps2 didn't either, exactly what can the wii do that is revolutionary for jrpgs?
lol people still thinking Square has any relevance. No one important will benefit from this. Like Australian Wii owner Vook, all Wii owners deserve a swift kick to the head for being so damn stupid. PS BUBBLES FOR ALL WHO HATE WII IN THIS THREAD, DISAGREES AND NEGABUBBLES FOR LOSERS WHO ACTUALLY THINK THIS NEWS IS GOOD!
My friend you need to relax a little. Clearly Nintendo has won and they did so using not the might of the graphics chip but the ease of simplicity. I would like a clear argument to why the haters believe that having an RPG such as DQ or whatever else that require little to no major physics use or graphic heavy chip, could the game not be made on a weaker system if it didn't need the above? If they are keeping the control as standard and not using the pointer then they can put it on PS2 also. Then why not put it on the system with such a large user base? 1- i think they might want to show they are multiplat company now 2- dev production cost & profit 3- why not bring a major franchise to the Wii, Capcom is doing it: ) 4-the wii is the new ps2, it's past fad and will do just fine. 5-SD games vs HD games, a great game is a great game. the 3rd parties need to step it up and just stop wasting their time with crap games and make stuff that we will want to buy. The casual crowd is one thing but eventually they will know what a crap game looks like.
highest development costs + smallest install base + poor economy is bad news for the PS3. In other words if you think its bad now, just you wait.
LOL wut??? FOR REAL???? SQUARE ANUS just screwed gaming in favor of the good selling gamecube??? Microsoft just buy this japafag company cancel all these useless nintendo projects and and make them PC/360. Such a shame. The greatest JRPG destroyed because of money and that useless piece of sh*t selling POS3. First MH3 and now DQX. PS3 is destroying gaming in japan
Ah ok..You must be new to gaming and this is your first gen... Quick history lesson for you so you can stop looking clueless.. LAst gen Sqaure stayed on the least powerful console.. Think of any game they released on PS2 and it could have been better had it been put on GC or Xbox since both were clearly superior to it. That didnt hurt those games at all. It wont hurt them this gen either. I think if they can manage some great games on a 233mhz system then they should also be able to do great things on a console with 733mhz...Ok if you need to google what I said I understand but it is all true and understanding it can help you look like less of a fool in the future.
Get the f*ck ouaahere!! PS2 was slightly weaker than xbox and GC. Wii is generations behind 360 plus no hardcore gamer cares about it. DQX will bomb anyways cuz the stupid wiitards wont buy it since it wont sport a nintendo logo. What a waste of a good franchise. I hope KH doesnt go the same sad way. MS start moneyhatting Nomura NOW since sony is useless this gen. ''console with 733mhz'' I just cant stop laughing after hearing that. Its like were back in the 90s. What a disaster this is
