Both versions of Dragon Quest X will come with 20 days of free online play.  Here’s the subscription pricing: 1,000 yen ($12) for 30 days, 1,950 yen ($24) for 60 days, and 2,900 yen for 90 days ($35).

        1. You need to have a penis in order to stick it in someone’s butt. And my butt is full of turds for you to lick. Sure you wanna stick it up there?

  2. Nice. I hope the Wii U version will be available at E3 or some news on it! This game is a perfect fit for the Wii U.

  3. Why the fuck would anyone pay 12 dollars a month to play one game online thats retardedly overpriced you should pay per hour not per month like 10 hours for a buck.

    1. Considering that this game might actually be a GOOD MMORPG so am I willing to pay alot for it… Heck.. People pay to play WoW :S

    1. The People Forget Phantasy Star Online… but this one this for the japanese, who are very prone to those tricks…(like us the western with PSO but tham, that was addictive)

    2. Surely $12 isn’t going to break the bank, if it is then you shouldn’t be buying video game and get a job

    3. Thats actually cheaper then the average MMO. Pricing wise, pretty fair. I’d rather it be around the $8 mark but, $12 for an Online game with dedicated servers and such isn’t extreme, actually its, like I said, cheaper then most other games (WoW and SW:ToR cost $15 a month to put it in perspective).

  4. dont care if u av to pay online. I am still getting this. stop fucking moaning. It costs ALOT to get web servers running especially new content and debugging that new content.

    bet if any of you naysayers where game or server developers you would appreciate a small feee. hardly a break in the bank. anyone with an average salary can pay 12 dollars a month easily bet some of you buy cigarettes or acohol… buy a few packs or bottles and your already paying more than dqx so shut up

    leave duck to heaven!

    1. yeahbut with the wii u and 3ds nintendo offers hosting to al online games like sony and microsoft do thats why nintendo network is there and for online full retail games fofoofcourse

  5. Wow…

    What a bunch of cheap pieces of crap.

    If Diablo 3 and Phantasy Star Online 2 can be free-to-play (with the only exception of microtransactions being made for certain in-game trinkets), then why can’t this game do the same? On that note, Phantasy Star Online 2 is also free-to-download AND play.

    At first, I was thinking this would finally be the game to bring me into the Dragon Quest series, but I seem to have been horribly wrong. Glad I never got into this series now! :)

    1. Phantasy Star Online 2 isn’t a full game yet and the way Sega is heading you bet your sweet ass that you will have to pay for on-line.

      dumb moron.

      1. Just pull the skin back and lick the crust off. The failed first commenter had an accident and didnt clean it, but you will.

  6. i wanted to get this game but i aint… 12 dollars a month…. nonoononnonononoonnoon i am not that stupid

    1. yes you are.

      God all of you who are moaning are stupid.

      It’s only for the Japanese players at the moment who have to pay.

      Capcom did this with Monster Hunter G but they didn’t for the western market.

      If Dragon Quest X get released in the west it will Nintendo who will be doing it, since Sqaure Enix drop all support.

      Which mean that we might not have to pay for it.

      Also honestly if you can pay for Xbox live then you can pay for this.

      1. i do not have a xobox and i HATE the xbox… for its online cost and now online is getting ads i heard …. i am never getting a xbox

  7. I love the Dragon Quest series. Also glad to see a major Square Enix title on a Nintendo console again, hopefully this means the next installment of the Final Fantasy series will return home to Nintendo.

    Leave luck to heaven.

  8. I absolutely need to have this game! I would be outraged if this game did not come to the U.S. Heck I would even pay $12 a month to play it online. I’ve even considered buying the Wii and Wii U version.
