New Dragon Quest X Screenshots and Info Showcase Exploration and The Continent of Pukurando

on October 19, 2011 12:30 PM

In what has become pretty much a weekly occasion, Square Enix published today some new information and screenshots about the upcoming Wii and Wii U JRPG Dragon Quest X: Mezameshi Itsutsu no Shuzoku Online.

Part of the screenshots focus on the continent of Pukurando, a green and fertile region that is also the home of the Pukuripo. Pukurando reflects the joyful nature of it’s inhabitants with a tranquil atmosphere similar to that of fairy tales, but adventurers need to be careful, as there are also powerful monsters hidden where one wouldn’t expect.

The capital of Pukurando is the city of Magistris, dominated by a castle and characterized by an elegant atmosphere that showcases the art-loving inclinations of the Pukuripo.

The Pukuripo themselves are curious and love to have fun, in a constant quest to make other people laugh, aiming to become the best entertainers, jesters and acrobats in the world. 

In addition to the info and screenshots about Pukurando, Square Enix shared some information about the fully explorable world of the game. Each area will have it’s own map that will show the most important features, and there will also be a web of roads that link the major landmarks, helping players not to get lost, alongside with several direction signs. Exploration-oriented players will be rewarded by being able to find treasure chests and hidden items.

An autorun feature will be present, to allow people to travel without having to constantly operate the analog stick and to communicate while running.

You can enjoy the new screenshots in the gallery below:

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
