DQ conference is on now.

There was a trailer for DQX. Looks pretty, looking forward to it.

Really? I love that music.

According to Andriasang, DQX will be online.

14:16: The game is going to be an online RPG. It's for Wii.
14:18: Regarding the online, your allies will be real players.

Sigh.

So it's an MMO? I really loved DQIX, but I never used the online functions. I guess I'll just have to ignore this entry and try the older ones to bide my time till DQXI.

They're saying you can complete it online, but that seems a bit disingenuous I think.

This seems clearly modeled after something along the lines of PSO.

It's coming out for the Wii-U as well.

You can complete it solo 100% they said. Meaning the online thing is optional.

Welp. That was a thing. Now to wait for the translated transcript or for somebody to provide the gist of it to show up.

At least the not really sewing/forging/feng-shie (or however it's spelled) looks nice.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

This is... Well, I'll see how the dust settles, and I'd probably be there day 1 anyway, but at least it sounds more like something designed with single player fans in mind than, say, FFXI which pretty much trolled them.

I'm trying to resist the urge to feel disappointed, but it's difficult.  I love DQ, but this. . .is not exactly what I play DQ for.  Still, if you can complete it 100% offline, it might not be so bad.

I suppose it would be foolish and irrational to judge the game at this point.  I'd best give it a chance before completely dismissing it. I did enjoy IX and playing with my husband was fun, but not something I'd like to do all the time.

Yeah, I'm not really going to be holding my breath until it's confirmed that it's coming out here in the US.

I'd still rather have Xenoblade over this tbh.

That's the gist of it.

Also, considering how 8 and 9 sold, there's no way it won't come here.

Then again, I said that about Last Story and Xenoblade. :/

Ok. So it's both Wii and Wii U right now. But we can expect it to require an upgrade to Wii U at some point down the line. Probably with the Chains of Prometheus or Treasures of Azla expansions.

I'll probably get it too. Hopefully the Wuu will have friends lists so it doesnt take eight years to set up a game.

Wii U version and the fact Nintendo's pretty invested in this (and failing them, SE) will likely ensure international release. If not, uhhh, wow.
