Gigazine is covering a mysterious Dragon Quest Press Event at Tokyo's Park Hyatt hotel. It's due to start in 30 mins or so. :eek: :eek: :eek:

Based on the schedule, it looks like they'll be announcing a new game, including staff, etc.

Edit:

Okay... Dragon Quest IX will be hitting Japan on 28th March 2009, for 5980yen. The game finally has a release date! Yay. Looks like the announcement isn't really major.........

HOLD UP!

HORII SEZ DQX IS FOR THE WII! IWATA SAYS THANK YOU! OMG!!!!!!!

^I'll guess that it won't be anything new.

Edit: nevermind, duckroll stealth edit.
Or I gotta learn to read.

Wow, this is the first time I'm actually here for one of these breaking events. I kind of dig the series, but I'm not super excited about an announcement right now.

Square Enix (and Enix before the merger) always releases the main Dragon Quest games on the leading system, so Dragon Quest X won't be coming out on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. It will be Wii or maybe Nintendo DS again.

you know what I would like to see. A DQ on the DS. That'd be a change.


Good thing tomorrow is the last day of classes!

Holy shit, that conference was on the EXACT SAME DAY, 2 years ago. :eek:
interesting...

Dragon Quest "parties" take place around this time December on even years (2006, 2008)

Square Enix Parties seemingly take place in the middle (around summer) of odd years (2005, 2007)

DQ 10 for the Wii :p
Please don't joke. PLEASE.

Seriously though, I do expect either a DQ 10 for Wii announcement, an announcment that DQ 9 has been moved to Wii, that there will be a DQIX DSi bundle, or they will announce something that is really disappointing.

Either way, I am staying up. Good thing my finals are done, :lol

I don't expect anything earth-shattering. Maybe total details on DQIX (voice acting? lol), and potentially DQVI DS and/or Slime Mori Mori 3 and/or new DQM game.

stealth edit: DQ Online using TFLO engine, developed by Level-5 for the meltdown.
