Dragon Quest X Nintendo Direct Confirmed For 30th July
The MMO title Dragon Quest X has already been released in Japan for the Wii, and is doing exquisitely well on the system – in fact, Nintendo has just confirmed that there will be a short Nintendo Direct broadcast centred on the title coming on 30th July, five days away, which will be shown at 8pm Japanese time. The standard time zone conversions for that are 12pm British Standard Time, 1pm Central European Time, and 7am US Eastern Time, so if you want to watch the live broadcast (which I must mention is in Japanese, by the way), take note of your respective broadcast time.
This will be the second title-focused Nintendo Direct, after last week’s Demon Training broadcast in Japan, so we’re wondering if this could also become a trend for Nintendo of Europe or Nintendo of America in a few weeks or months maybe. Both, preferably.
Dragon Quest X is also going to see itself a free app coming out on the 3DS, scheduled for 22nd August. It will be available via download code included with a purchase of the full Wii title. It has also been reported that, among the many features of interaction between the app and the game, there will be a ‘Double StreetPass’ function. Basically, it works like this: if you pass someone in real life with your 3DS via StreetPass, and you then pass the very same person within the online game world, you will be prompted to receive a very special reward. Not bad.
So far, there hasn’t been any word on Dragon Quest X for the Wii U, which makes me a very sad bunny, right now. Anyhow, if you do want to learn more or watch the footage, you’ll be able to watch the online broadcast live at the Nintendo Direct homepage. Again, it is in Japanese, so if you’re expecting to understand a word of it and you don’t speak the language, I’d recommend you have Google Translate open in another tab, at the very least.
