I was curious about this, too... So it seems SE got a lot of bang for their buck porting DQX to PC, then? I wonder how this will affect future business calculations. I mean, what's the precedent for this, especially in the AAA space? Not necessarily asking you, by the way, as I don't expect you to know the answer to everything. Mostly just thinking aloud, although answers would be awesome.
DQX needs to somehow become a multimillion seller like the other DQs, dammit.
No really, the more people play it, the more enjoyable the DQX world becomes for veterans like me. And some people who will get hooked on smartphones might also get one of the non-cloud versions to play at home.
This seems really weird... I mean, it's not like current smartphones can't run DQX. And there are MMOs like Order and Chaos out there that are perfectly playable so I think NTT Docomo is paying SE a truckload of money just to have the game on their service.
Also, a video of it running at the event: http://youtu.be/y_H7_Gh6mxo
Speaking if which, since they will have to implement touch controls for the menues on smart phones I hope they bring those to the GamePad as well. U version was quite lacking touch control feature wise, only using the touch screen as a keyboard.
It seems like Nintendo's locked down console exclusivity for DQX similar to how Sony's locked down FFXIV. It's been over a year since DQX Wii released so if a PS3/4/Vita port were happening I think we'd probably know about it by now.
Personally I'd like to see both DQX and FFXIV ported to about anything that could run them. The bigger your potential audience for an MMORPG, the better.
First reaction: hahahahahahahahahaha
Second reaction: isn't there a way to at this game with nes graphics? With all the games like that on smartphone, this could work
Third reaction: this IS ios and android and not those phones like the ones with after years and ff dimensions, right?
At this point I really would like to see Dragon Quest XI being a smartphone exclusive. Actually, I would like every beloved S-E franchise going to smartphones, including FFV and FFVI remake. I just don't care anymore, I want to see everything burn
