Dragon Quest X an online RPG, may include 'usage fees'

Dragon Quest X

Last night at a Square Enix reveal event, Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii made a big announcement regarding the upcoming entry in the series: it will be an online RPG.

Horrii also introduced the first trailer for Dragon Quest X, which showed off the game’s various classes such as ogres and dwarves. The popular slime monsters also made an appearance, and a brief scene of a party running across the world map was included in the trailer as well.

Level-5 developed the last two entries in the series, but its name didn’t come up at the event. At this point it wouldn’t be surprising if Square Enix handled both publishing and developing duties.

A discovery made on a brief news post also hints at the possibility of a "usage fee." Considering Dragon Quest X is now an online RPG, that makes sense.

The game is also being developed for Wii U, which will include cross-platform play with the Wii version. That platform’s release date is listed as TBA, but Dragon Quest X is expected to come out for the Wii in Japan at some point in 2012.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
