Dragon Quest X Wii U Details Confirmed For Tokyo Game Show

Dreaming of a worldwide release

Dragon Quest X on Wii arrived in Japan a month ago and has been selling in good numbers, albeit below the normal expectations for the series. This has no doubt been influenced by the waning influence of Wii, but Square Enix is now preparing to reveal Dragon Quest X on Wii U at the upcoming Tokyo Game Show, building some delicious hype at the same time.

As reported by Andriasang, Square Enix will host a special stage event during the show which will lift the lid on the Wii U version of the title. Apart from confirmation that it would be released on the new hardware, we've seen and heard nothing since; this event will be a chance to see the enhancements on Wii U and what kind of features will be included. The Tokyo Game Show takes place between 20th and 23rd September, so we can expect news and footage during that time.

Of course, there's no guarantee that this version will make it outside of Japan, but after the effort given to localise Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies on DS, we hope that this sequel will make it to the West on Nintendo's new system.
