Dragon Quest X: Wii U version dated for Japan - new screens

Subscription-based online game releasing at the end of March

Square Enix has announced a Wii U Dragon Quest X release date of March 30 in Japan.


Featuring enhanced graphics and support for GamePad-only play, the MMORPG will offer the same basic content as the chart-topping Wii version, which launched in Japan last August and reportedly amassed 300,000 subscribers by the end of the following month.

Dragon Quest X will retail for 6,980 yen (£48 / $75) and include a ticket granting access to 20 days of online play, Siliconera reports.

A Dragon Quest X hardware bundle featuring a premium Wii U console, the game, a black Pro Controller, a Nintendo prepaid card worth 1,000 yen (£7 / $11), and five super health orbs will cost 42,000 yen (£292 / $453). It will also include access to a Wii U beta test kicking off on March 6.
