    Dragon Quest X headed to Wii
    Wednesday 10-Dec-2008 10:04 AM
    Square Enix also dates Dragon Quest IX in Japan
    Square Enix has chosen Wii as the destination for the next installment of its blockbuster role playing series Dragon Quest.

    That's according to Reuters, which says the publisher has yet to reveal a launch date or any pricing details for Dragon Quest X.

    Before the new game's release, Dragon Quest IX will launch for DS on March 28 in Japan. It'll cost 5,980 yen ($64.73), but there's no word yet on when the title will be coming out over here.

    Early titles in the multi million selling Dragon Quest series appeared on Nintendo platforms, before the franchise decamped to PlayStation, but the recent rebirth of Nintendo via the success of Wii and DS means, from a business perspective, it just makes financial sense to target those markets.

    More details when we get them.

    $64 for a DS game, wow. I wonder how X will cost in American dollars, like $100?

    Anyway, I just ordered DQVIII from eBay for $5. Basically wanted to see what all this fuss was about. If I like it I may check it out on Wii. I don't have a DS so I probably won't get to seriously play IX

    I played DQVIII, I didn't finish it, but it was pretty good.

    Hmm...I wonder why Tron stopped posting.

    My favorite games ever are the original Dragon Warrior 1 and 2 games for the original Nintendo. I played 3 and 4 as well and Final Fantasy 1 for the original 8 bit too. The newer ones are obviously more sophisticated but I haven't played them. I'm sure the themes are the same which is great.

    Dragon Quest X Coming to 3DS

    Square Enix has announced that its massively multiplayer online role-playing game Dragon Quest X will be making the jump to Nintendo 3DS this September in Japan. The subscription-based MMO first launched for Wii and Wii U before moving to mobile devices and PC. From September 4 the game will be available on 3DS, and will make use of the same cloud streaming service that the mobile versions use. This means that the game will look better than most 3DS titles, but the handheld’s 3D capabilities will be disabled as a result. The 3DS version will come with 60 days of game time free when you purchase the base game, and three-day, 10-day and 30-day passes will also be available.
    Last we heard Square Enix stated that it was still considering whether to release Dragon Quest X in the west.

    I'd really be interested in playing a Dragon Quest game, but have there been any significant Western releases?

    Dragon Quest 4 confirmed for Western mobiles

    (7 hours ago)
    23

    [​IMG]
    Square Enix unveiled Dragon Quest 4 as part of its line-up for the upcoming Gamescom conference, confirming the mobile port for a Western release. The Enix RPG, which first came to North America as Dragon Warrior 4 back in 1992, will be the series' second entry to reach international mobiles after Dragon Quest 8 back in May. No surprises but the mobile port is based on the 2008 DS version rather than the NES original.

    As for the other upcoming games in Square Enix's line-up, Gamescom attendees can try out Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, Kindgom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix, and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call. The publisher will also be showing Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn, Nosgoth and Dragon Quest 8 - again, no surprises, but no sign of Kingdom Hearts 3 or Final Fantasy 15 in the line-up.

    This year's Gamescom conference begins on August 13, and we'll be there in Germany to cover all the major goings-on, including all the latest Kölsch stats.

    Probably your best bet is Dragon Quest IX for the original DS. You can find the remakes for the DS and 3DS (which is 4-6, I believe), but IX is the cheapest to find in my experience. It has a FF style, so each game has a different story

    Not even news, pretty expected. The question is what platform. I'm guessing it's sticking with Nintendo. I think, like Monster Hunter, they have a lock on the mainline series.

    It's not going to happening. The 3DS makes the fifth platform it's become available on and still no localization. Plus, since it's a MMO, I'm guessing it's not worth the effort to bring outside of Japan. DQ has enough of a fanbase outside the region to give the mainline games a modest success, but not big enough like FF to support a full MMO.

    If it weren't a MMO, I would say there's a possibility, but no way they're going to sink money into localization and server maintenance in a region where 1 mil. is usually the ceiling for the main games and side games bomb. It's a dead dream, unfortunately. Best to just hope the next game gets a worldwide release.

    Square Enix launching Dargon Quest 4 on iOS today

    (1 hour ago)
    12

    [​IMG]
    Square Enix is bringing Dargon Quest 4 to the App Store as soon as this evening. A listing for the game appeared on the New Zealand App Store, which typically suggests the game will propagate to other regions throughout the day, including North America. Square Enix confirmed the iPhone and iPad version of Dargon Quest 4 late last week by including it in the publisher's Gamescom lineup. Dargon Quests 1-3 are, sadly, lost to time, their code consumed by the Great Dracky Infestation of '06.

    Ok, obviously, this is just an unfortunate typo, but we thought it was worth a chuckle. What can we say? We're easily amused. Twitter similarly found the story worth poking fun at, using the hashtag #DargonQuestMyGame to collect similar new IPs like Lara Crafting: Tome Raider, Brad, Dante's In Fresno, BioSock, and Fire Embalm.
