Dragon Quest X is expected to release on the Nintendo Wii sometime in 2012. The Wii U version is still TBA. Dragon Quest X is an MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game). The game is taking place in Astoria, which contains five continents and five races. The game is expected to have a huge story. Although the game is online, players can choose to play alone and use NPCs, and create their own character. Character classes include Ogre, Elf, Dwarf, Pukuripo, and Wedi.
The game features a job system. One of them being an Alchemist. With Alchemy players can add attributes to current items. Events in the game tie into different seasons such a winter and spring. More Quests will be added after the games release, and additional quests will be available like they were in IX, perhaps sooner. Some quests will have multiple volumes.
If other players wear your crafted items you become a little bit famous. There’s custom inside and outside housing. Characters can be involved with crafting professions. A sewing system so players can make clothes. You can check out other players who are fighting. Create parties in the pub and other parties can choose to use your character. Ability to assist fallen players. Chat bubbles appear when you speak, and can interact with others online by using emotes. By using skill points, which are gained when you level up, it allows you to customize your character to how you see fit. Japanese consumers can apply for the beta, but it requires a USB storage device.
So far, this game is looking pretty good. You might see me picking it up in a year.
