Square Enix MMORPG Dragon Quest X is coming to Nintendo’s next platform, codenamed NX.
The game’s producer Yosuke Saito confirmed its development, along with a PS4 version, in an interview with Famitsu while addressing a question about server load with the current releases.
“I think there will be an influx of new players that peaks with the launch of the PS4 and NX editions,” said Saito. “Up until then, rather than the incoming new players, we are doing our best for the people who are playing already.”
Dragon Quest X was actually announced for the NX last year, but Square Enix retracted that statement and instead said that they were merely considering bringing the game to the NX.
The game has been exclusive to Japan since its launch in 2012 and there is no word on whether Square Enix plans to bring the game to the West with the future releases.No comments
Bravely Second co-producer Masashi Takahashi was at PAX East this past weekend signing autographs and meeting with fans at the Nintendo booth. He was also the main guest at the company’s Bravely Second developer panel on Sunday.
For those that weren’t able to attend, a recording of the entire panel is available on the PAX Twitch channel, along with other unrelated events from that day. However, since Twitch deletes archived streams after 15 or 60 days, Nintendo Everything saved and uploaded an alternate recording to YouTube.No comments
