In Dragon Quest X, a player has the option to invite real life players or CPU characters to join his or her party. Real life players will have their names written in blue, where CPU characters’ names will be written in either pink or white. A pink name means that a character must be approached because he or she is important to the game’s story.
Armor shops, inns and churches return in Dragon Quest X. Players can rest at an inn to regain their health; churches need to be visited in order to cure poison, revive allies, or remove curses from party members. Unlike Dragon Quest IX, Dragon Quest X saves your progress automatically. Dragon Quest X for Wii will be released in Japan on August 2nd.
Those of you who’re eagerly awaiting details on Capcom’s unique masterpiece need wait no longer.
Christian Svensson, the senior director of strategy at Capcom revealed some rather intriguing snippets of information relating to the forthcoming Okami port on the Nintendo Wii:
- Paintbrush learning curve takes “10 minutes” with the Wii Remote.
- Precision with the Wii remote isn’t too important with gameplay centered around quick strokes and wrist waggles.
- No new content, but still aiming for 40-60 hours of gameplay.
- Ability to skip dialogue sections
- Wii version is complete and currently going through testing and finalising.
- “Appropriate sized marketing”, but no TV advertising to promote the release.
- Short delay between European and US releases.
- “…all of you Wii fanatics better have Okami pre-ordered by now because that�s the next test (and it�s waaay better with Wii controls, than it was on PS2� it�s very different, in a good way).”
- Estimated release: March 2008.
