Soo..are we sure it was actually announced? So far it seems like a lot of google translators..

DQ X on Wii seems like a forgone conclusion.

Square Enix just shot themselves in the foot.

I don’t know how much the rest of you know about Japanese culture (I’m an expert), but honor and shame are huge parts of it. It’s not like it is in America where you can become successful by being an asshole. If you screw someone over in Japan, you bring shame to yourself, and the only way to get rid of that shame is repentance.

What this means is the japanese public, after hearing about this, is not going to want to purchase DQIX for DS, nor will they purchase any of Square Enix’s games. This is HUGE. You can laugh all you want, but Square Enix has alienated an entire market with this move.

Square Enix, publicly apologize and cancel DQX for Wii or you can kiss your business goodbye.

They weren't allowed to take pictures of the movie clip. There was an angel that looked like Dragon Ball's 天津飯 (sorry, don't know shit about DB)

Are you sure that's not:

Q: Is DQ10 going to come out for the Wii?
A: DQ9 is coming out soon, enjoyyy

Exactly what I'm thinking. But DQX on Wii is all but inevitable unless Nintendo releases Wii 2 by 2010.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free
