Square Enix continues to be stingy with English media for the upcoming Dragon Quest MMO. Luckily, the Wii U version trailer is full of interesting sights and sounds, while not requiring the viewer to speak any Japanese.
It’s been a while since we talked about this game, so let’s refresh our memories, shall we? Dragon Quest X is a traditional subscription-based MMO, unlike the rest of the main numbered DQ titles. In a unique twist, several hours a day will constitute a designated free-to-play time in order to allow children a chance to enjoy it. While the name alone is enough to afford the release massive hype, this business model has raised a lot of eyebrows, resulting in both stock drops and (presumably) a reluctance to fast-track an English release. I guess all we can hope for is that it fares better than SE’s last massively multiplayer project.
Dragon Quest X hits Japanese Wii U’s on March 30th, 2013. No localization information is available at this time.
