Dragon Quest X coming to PC (in Japan, at least)

Square Enix's venerable Dragon Quest franchise is finally coming to PC. Dragon Quest X, originally announced for Wii and Wii U, will also be coming to Windows computers later this year--in Japan, at least.

This marks the first time the long-running RPG series has graced PC. Perhaps it's because this is the first time the franchise has jumped into MMO territory. Although there is a small offline component to the game, the full experience can only be unlocked by playing online and paying a monthly subscription fee.

Square Enix investigating Wii U support [update]

With the Wii U formally announced, high-profile software support for the original Wii is finally waning. Once the new Zelda game releases, will it make sense for third parties to release new software on the platform? That was a question recently raised to Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada regarding Dragon Quest X.

While the Dragon Quest franchise has never reached the same level of success in America as it has in Japan, it's undeniably an important property. Dragon Quest X was originally announced for Wii, and still remains on track for the Wii, Wada says. But, it appears that Square Enix is also investigating "how to support Wii U." Read more »
