At last

Square Enix will release its online RPG Dragon Quest X in Japan this August.

The Wii game lands on 2nd August in two editions: the standard game costs ¥6,980, or you can buy it with a USB memory card for ¥8,980. If you buy the solus game, you'll need to provide your own USB memory stick with at least 16GB capacity, which is used for download content and update in the future.

DQX also ships on two discs, a real rarity for Wii games — we can't name any two-disc Wii games, but we're sure you can — and comes with a monthly service charge: ¥1,000 for 30 days, ¥1,950 for 60 or ¥2,900 for 90 days. Each game comes with a free 20 day period of play, and Square Enix will be hosting free "Kids' Time" periods where young ones can enjoy online play without paying.

The promised Wii U version is still under wraps.
