At a press conference in 2008, Yuji Horii announced the development of the heavily anticipated Dragon Quest X, a series we’ve all been familiar with for some time. However, continuing the trend of keeping the series portable was thrown out the window with the tenth iteration planned for a Wii release.
A move that Horii explained in the April 2011 issue of Nintendo Power during a segment called “Dragon Quest Through The Ages” as a draw for users who “want to play Dragon Quest on the big screen.” With the game announced as nearing completion and slated for the end of this year, Horii says they’ve taken cues from the community on certain matters such as bringing the same systems back from Dragon Quest VIII. A change that I can feel all school-girl-giddy about, now I just need to purchase a Wii.
(As a side note, I wrote “Dragon Age” every single time that I tried to write “Dragon Quest”, damn you modern video games!)
