You Want more Dragon Quest? You've Got It! But Here's the Thing... (VIDEO)
The Dragon Quest series has been like a nomad since pat 8. Dragon Quest IX never even came to consoles, and now we get news of Dragon Quest X. Since part 9 was exclusive to a Nintendo system, it was fair to assume that 10 would be a Nintendo exclusive as well.
Now we know that Dragon Quest x will be coming to the Wii and the new Wii U. What's truly newsworthy about X being announced is that it will be an online RPG. Dragon Quest X is an old school turn-based RPG, and while it will have online elements, it does not look like it will totally transform into an MMO. You will be able to play the game alone, then join up with your friends cooperatively.
Dragon Quest isn't a big deal in the Americas, but Dragon Quest is HUGE in Japan. Maybe the new game will keep the Wii alive just a bit longer.
