Dragon Quest X Compilation Coming To Wii U In Japan

Square Enix has revealed that there’s a Dragon Quest X compilation which includes all three versions of the game coming to the Wii U in Japan. Again, it should be noted that this is for Japan only as Square Enix doesn’t seem to have any intentions of releasing the MMORPG in the west. Hopefully they will change their tune with Dragon Quest XI which is coming to the Nintendo 3DS and apparently the Nintendo NX.

Thanks, Michael
