Dragon Quest X Online Screens: Of Spells And Enemies
How does it all work?!
12.30.11 - 3:25 AM

Dragon Quest X Online, the first game in the series to become an MMORPG, has a battle system that looks similar to the rest of the series. The difference is, in DQX it works more like Final Fantasy's Active Time Battle system, where the action takes place in real-time, but you still input commands when your character's turn is up.

You'll need to keep allies' and enemies' distance in mind when casting spells, but if they're not within range... you can always push them in. Of course, this is only possible if your character (armour included) weighs more than the one being shoved. Also introduced was one of the game's jobs, an entertainer. They can wield polearms, fans and daggers and have moves like Hustle Dance which recovers the party's HP.

For some likely better context, you can check out related screens for all of the above, in our gallery linked below. Dragone Quest X Online (Wii/Wii U) does not yet have an exact date.
