Dragon Quest X: Wii U release and beta confirmed

By Updated on

The Dragon Quest X release date will fall some time in 2012, and today we got confirmation that the game will be released for the Wii U as an online RPG, which was during a Square Enix press conference.

Dragon Quest X will be coming to both the Wii and newer “U” version releasing next year. The gamer will be able to form a party and be with other players in an online world, which will be developed by a Square Enix team. This is a big change for the popular game, and it will be interesting to see how the game develops especially considering the use of internal developers for Quest X.

The Nintendo Wii U will allow for new games and existing Wii games to play on the new hardware, but Dragon Quest X will not only allow for the Wii version to be played but also a new and improved Wii U version. The Wii was never known for great graphics but having improved visuals on the Wii U version will be a must for Nintendo fans that also love great graphics.

Another nice touch is the ability to play in the online world with both Wii and Wii U players, also the limited 3DS support will be welcomed by owners of that system. We should see a Dragon Quest X beta after Hori said some players could get a chance of playing the game early. You can expect the roles of character designer, composer and designer to be played by Akira Toriyama, Koichi Sugiyama and Yuji Hori.

Would you want to be one of the players testing the game? We’ll update you as we get a more specific Dragon Quest X release date and beta details. For more details keep you eyes on the Square Enix Twitter page, press site, or our Twitter and Facebook page as seen below.
