In a definitely unexpected turn of events Square Enix just announced that the rather successful MMORPG Dragon Quest X is getting a 3DS port, which will be released in Japan on September 4th.
What’s even more interesting is that 3DS players will be on the same servers as the already existing PC, Wii U and Wii platform, and the 3DS version will offer the full game without any missing parts of limitations.
The game will cost 3,800 yen (plus taxes) and will include a download code for the game, 60 days of play time, a special in-game item (which will turn the hoverboard into a yellow slime), five ancient scrolls granting 1000 experience points each, a casino ticket equivalent to 1000 tokens, a poster and a lottery ticket that will grant one of several prizes.
You can check out the first two screenshots (and the box art) below, which look great especially since the game won’t be rendered by the 3DS itself, but will use Square Enix’s cloud gaming tech. The publisher was keen on mentioning that the quality of the picture can vary depending on your internet connection.
Unfortunately no further word has been shared about the already teased western localization.
