Square Enix released today the weekly batch of screenshots and information about Dragon Quest X: Mezameshi Itsutsu no Shuzoku Online, showcasing the Warrior class and the Uena islands.

Warriors are strong, dependable fighters that are useful both in an attacking and in a defending role. They can use swords and axes.

Swords will come in both one handed and two handed variations, and when using a one handed sword warriors will be able to also equip a shield to improve their defense.

Warriors (like any other class) will be able to allocate points to different skills. Some will increase their attack, some will be dedicated to improving their defense abilities, others will also allow to perform special attacks, for instance a jumping strike, or hitting several enemies at the same time in a circle around the character.

Some skills will be usable only when the Warrior job will be active, while others will be carried over to the other jobs.

The Uena Islands have also been introduced. They’re located south of the main continent of the game, and they are the homeland of the Wedi race.

The Uena islands are an archipelago of small islands and tropical paradise surrounded by the seas and coverest by lush rain forest. There are villages directly facing the sea, giving the place an atmosphere similar to that of a vacation resort. The large capital of the kingdom of Verinad is different, with white walls reminiscent of sea shells in their style.

Players will also be able to meet and interact with the royal family of the kingdom during their adventures. You can see the new screenshots in the gallery below:
