    Dragon Quest X Mezameshi Itsutsu no Shuzoku

    Platform: Wii/Wii-U

    Details:
    - Cross platform between Wii/Wii-U
    - First internally developed DQ game at Square Enix
    - Produced by Yosuke Saito (NIER) and directed by Jin Fujisawa (DQ8, DQ9)
    - Seems MMO-ish? Pseudo MMO where it's reduced in size. Think of Guild Wars 1 or Phantasy Star Online

    - The game takes place in a world with 5 continents, and 5 different races/tribes living in them
    - Turn/Command based combat.
    - The game will have a "huge story"
    - Job system will be in.
    - New jobs added after launch.
    - Aiming for a higher quest addition rate than DQ9.
    - Seasonal events.
    - Can create a character.
    - Customizable AI party members, recruitable at bars.
    - When you're not playing, you can let your character be used by other players in their parties.
    - Players playing alone can recruit people driven by AI.

    - They're thinking about something where you can transfer your character to your 3DS for Spot Pass transfers with other players.
    - Cross platform between Wii & Wii-U. Wii-U graphically superior but share the same world as the Wii version
    - Can stop playing on one platform and continue where you left off on the other.
    - The Wii game supports Wiimote+Nunchuck, Classic Controller, Classic Controller Pro, as well as USB Keyboards
    - The Wii game will use both the game disc as well as USB memory storage
    - There could be a feature where characters can be transferred onto the 3DS and shared with other players using Streetpass
    - TBA 2012

    I wonder if this will be the first MSO created, it seems to be the case, from what's been said it's likely an MSO and not an MMO.

    Fuck i'm conflicted, i don't like MMORPGS, it looks like FFXI, but i guess its normal turn based.

    Looks really bad. The combat and the camera specially. Not too keen on the visuals too, they look like the DS version, but a bit better. Xenoblade looks better.

    MMO? Ehhhhhhhhhhhhh

    When did it become such a bad thing to have games where it's a fully single player experience? I know you don't have to have other players, but still.

    I understand your sentiment. The story will not be centered in the characters, but on the NPCs, like DQ IX.

    It's basically a MMO with story.

    "You can see other players fighting in the world. This looks MMORPGish. I don't think they've said how many people can exist in the same world though."

    Hence the "seems" mmo-ish.
