Dragon Quest X almost done, announcement "by the end of this year"

Joystiq: Horii explained that the move to Wii was motivated by his feeling that "some users will want to play Dragon Quest on the big screen," noting that the choice of platform, including the decision to put a particular game on a handheld system, is "really a case-by-case basis." He also said that the team hears "that players want a new Dragon Quest that follows the same system of Dragon Quest VIII, so that's something else we're taking into consideration while in development of a Dragon Quest for Wii."

The story is too old to be commented.

Dragon Warrior 8?! No!!!!!!!! How bout sticking to the Edrick or Zenithan Sagas? Those series are the ones that made you who you are today you friggin idiots!!! Squeenix is dead. Dead I tell you, DEAD!!

DQ VIII was the best reviewed and probably the most financially successful in the series. How ignorant they must be to keeping making these mediocre DQ games for the DS and Wii. If we got another DQ as epic as VIII I'd be a very happy man. What the hell is up with JRPGs lacking quality lately?

ps3 or not interested

The fact that it will be very similar to 8 means super interested.

And why is a 2 month old article just getting approved now?

I will probably buy the game, simply because I want a good (or hope for a good) JRPG.

However, I am not overly optimistic simply because they are making it like Dragon Quest 8 (my favorite in the series) since Level5 is not working on it.

Even though Horii is working on the game, Squenix has yet to prove in about 7+ years that they are able to make a really good non-handheld game by themselves.

VampiricDragon2683d ago

Level 5 probably is working on it. In fact we dont really know who is.

Well to be fair square hasnt really tried to make a console game or use any of there properties on consoles.

If released on the wii
No Dragon Quest for me.

A little old don't you think.

BubbleSniper2683d ago

Yeah. I'd rather buy DQX on 3DS.

As for comparing DQ? I still think DQVII/VI are the best, followed by DQIII

InTheZoneAC2683d ago

why are they being dumb? Put that back on playstation and make it like DQ8 and see a surge in profit...

Dragon Quest IX sold pretty well IIRC. It was also a pretty solid RPG IMO. I think X will do well as long as Nintendo themselves advertize it like they did with IX.
