Lots of New Dragon Quest X Screens on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Square Enix have recently shown off a whole new bunch of screens from the upcoming Wii and Wii U online RPG Dragon Quest X.

Due for release in 2012 in Japan, the first online game in the series allows for cross-platform online play and the ability to choose between playing with other people or having AI controlled support party members. Other features include being able to follow another player (handy if you're not sure where to go) and supporting other parties you see battling monsters in the world. You can hire AI support characters from a pub, and even put your name down to be a support character too. Then, when you turn your game off, other people can hire your character and you'll keep the experience you gained when you put the game back on.

For more information on the game, check out our preview here.

Do make sure to see the rest of the screenshots in the images folder.

I assume, given the time it must take them to localize text, that we won't be getting the Wii version, and get treated to the superior Wii U version instead. For me that'd be all for the better. It'd save us the trouble of pondering whether to wait or not Smilie.

I doubt we won't be getting at least one of the two versions anyway, every single Dragon Quest title in recent years made it to Europe, so I see no reason for them not to do so this time 'round as well.

I suppose these are Wii version of the game picks, not the Wii U

I'd imagine so. But wouldn't surprise me if they used the same engine for Wii U either.

I'd expect at the minimum the same engine for the Wii U version, just running at higher resolution with better defined textures and possibly some added special effects that couldn't be achieved on the original Wii hardware.

I expect a least that much, but wouldn't count too much on a proper port that makes full use of the Wii U power.

I'll wait for a Wii U release. Better online, probably a great use of the tablet for stats and what not AND we'll be able to play with Wii owners as well so there will be a LOT of people online.

If you can connect with wii users then what makes you think the wiiU version would have a better connection?
