It was a big day for Japan today, as Jump Festa was in full swing. The much anticipated Dragon Quest X was a hot topic at the event, and producer Yosuke Saito and director Jin Fujizawa were in attendance to give the world some new details on the first ever MMO for the series. Aside from saying that both the Wii and Wii-U versions of the game would be “very fun”, Saito also stated that a beta would be approaching during the “time period of chocolate” (which is looking like Valentine’s day) for Japan (via Andriasang). We are also expected to see more job classes added in after the game releases next year, with certain classes being a complete first for the franchise.
As exciting as the news for a beta and extra classes is, I am just ready to find out more about an eventual western release as it would be a shame to see such a monumental released shunned outside of Japan. If you are in the land of the rising sun though, you now can look forward to a first dip into a brand new Dragon Quest experience.
