Wii Gets Dragon Quest X

Wii Gets Dragon Quest X

The Japanese phenomenon Dragon Quest is coming to the Wii, Square Enix has announced.

During a media event in Japan (where Dragon Quest IX was given an official Japanese release date for March 28 next year), Square Enix said that the tenth iteration of the sensationally-successful series will migrate to Nintendo’s Wii console.

No details were given beyond this statement, and it is not known if the Wii version will remain an exclusive, though the financial allure of a dual-platform release across both Wii and DS makes it a distinct possibility.

Dragon Quest X will not mark the first time the series has found itself inside a Wii (with Dragon Quest Swords being released earlier this year), yet this is the first Wii iteration of the central franchise.
