  1. I just hope there will be a lot of features exclusive to the Wii U version, otherwise people would just buy the Wii version for cheaper.

    1. From what I understand, both games will be pretty much identical in terms of everything but graphics and (hypothetically) online capabilities. Every game will come packaged with a USB to plug into the Wii to it can handle more data in the form of DLC.

      1. Oh you’re going to have your heart broken dude, Square has no loyalty to anyone but money, next year nobody is going to want an SD Wii version, & not a lot of people will buy a Wii U just for this game, so what do you think is gonna happen, “we’re talking about Japan here so 360 is out of the equation”..

        1. Of the 10 main games, 4 were on Playstation in Japan, 2 in America, and only one PS Dragon Quest made it to Europe. I wouldn’t get your hopes up.

          Also, Dragon Quest VII was a Playstation 1 exclusive released after the PS2 was already on store shelves and it hit quadrupal-platinum. Don’t count the Wii version out just yet.

        2. 360 is so out of the equation that The Last Remnant and Infinite Undiscovery could never appear on the system. Neither could Monster Hunter Frontier. This Lost Odyssey and this Blue Dragon thing are only myths… >.>

  2. pretty rage that we are expected to read the text still, why is Nintendo so against voice actors? i’m dyslexic and have always had trouble with text heavy games, i have always dreamed of a Zelda with VO. Guess i can always dream…

    1. It’s always going to take a lot more time, effort and increase of costs in order to do a V.O. game, let alone one that’s online. As in the case of Square-Enix’s previous online games, Final Fantasy XI did not have voice acting, whereas it’s direct predecessor Final Fantasy X was actually the first in the series to have it.

  3. I’m curious as to whether it will be an MMO or not. They’ve said “Online RPG” but no article has said it will be a “Massively-Multiplayer Online RPG”, which could indicate it’s a single player game with with added online functionality, perhaps the ability to play the game offline as well. Which personally I think would be a great plus.

  4. i would be more excited if this nintendo news guy knew how to write a headline.

    You Don’t Capitalize Every Word Like This! You Dumbass.

    1. Perhaps writing in correct grammar first, then try to tell people wrong skills helps. and no, your wrong. The headline is usually all capital “LIKE THIS”, His is neater as its a long title. Also, your username is incorrect grammar

  5. 1- If this is a Wii game, isn’t it too late? And couldn’t it find a better home at more online-capable systems? PS3 anyone?

    2- if this is a Wii U game, how are Wii U capabilities are incorporated (graphics)? Is it going to be a direct port from Wii?

    Games like this consistently remind me that Nintendo releases upgraded consoles rather than brand new ones. To me all I see is a marketing plan to milk the series at both ends. This game won’t see the light of day anytime soon anyway, 2014 at best! God I feel old.

    1. Upgraded version?!?!? Okay, I will admit that the Wii was pretty much a suited up gamecube, BUT the Gamecube was a Bajillion time more powerful than the N64 (excuse my exaggeration). In fact the gamecube was the most powerful of it’s generation (Gamecube,PS2,Dreamcast) until the Xbox came out. Don’t even get me started about n64 vs snes. Or even GB vs GBA.

  7. I know it’s terrible and silly of me because they’re good games but DQ is the only game I will not play because of the character design. I don’t like the DBZ foreheads and eyes lol

  8. It was under my understanding that Nintendo has had some sort of influence in this game so that it would stay exclusive to Nintendo systems. I’ll get it for Wii U since I’m getting one, but if they release limited editions of it, I might get it for both Wii U and Wii.

  9. I’m really pumped for this. I was kind of hoping for more info such as what will the online experience be like but this video has me really excited.

  11. People need to understand that the Wii isnt going anywhere because its not a dying console,2 years from now a brand new Wii for $130 will sell way more than a $300 plus Wii U because times are hard for Americans and people arent spending money on these high ass consoles like they use to.Hmmm i can pay $100 for a used Wii,$60 or $70 for the Dragon Quest X(Wii Version bundled with USB Drive for DLC),and thats about oh i dont know $175 tops,or I can spend $250 plus on a Wii U(WHICH WILL HAVE GRAPHICS EQUIVALENT TO A PS3 OR XBOX 360,OK SLIGHTLY VERY VERY VERY VERY SLIGHTLY BETTER GRAPHICS THAN A 360 OR PS3)and $60 no wait on the new system it will be much higher so $60 for the Dragon Quest X,so thats over $300,its all about Economics people and theirs smart putting this out on a down priced system,its only smart
