on May 15, 2013 3:52 PM

If you were worried about the lack of Sunday news about Dragon Quest X, today Square Enix came bearing gifts to make it up. Not only we get the usual info about a new questline, but also more on the large update numbered 1.4 that was released today on the Japanese servers.

We learn that the update includes a whole new storyline that will prompt players to fight against a completely new and terrible threat that looms on the game’s world of Astoltia. We also get to see the new floating mount/vehicle that will grant faster movement across the land.

In addition to that, the update also includes the first episode of the new weekly questline that will focus on the Dowachakka continent. The title of the questline is quite interesting and will sound familiar to JRPG lovers and philosophy enthusiasts as well: “Kenja no Tsue wa Kaku Katariki“.

It can be translated as “Thus Spoke the Sage’s Wand” and it echoes Tsaratusutora wa Kaku Katariki, that was the subtitle of Xenosaga Episode III and the Japanese translation of  the title of Nietzsche’s famous book Thus Spoke Zarathustra.

Below you can see the new screenshots that accompanied the announcement.
