Dragon Quest Swords website

Dragon Quest Swords website

Two days before the american release of the role-playing game Dragon Quest Swords on the Nintendo Wii, Square-Enix opens an official website for it. This is the occasion for us to present you its images. Europe will have to wait until this summer before putting its sword on it.

I like the old school, first person rpg feel to it.

I heard it's only 8-10 hours long.

Not a problem. Some of the greatest games out there are 8-10 hours or below.

This makes me even more pissed off that DQIX is on the DS. A total waste of potential. If Squeenix wanted to make money fast, they should have just developed it for the Wii. Would look much better and continue the cinematic quality started by DQVIII. I'm still going to buy DQIX on the DS though.

The Wii wasn't considered a success back then so it would have been a massive gamble.

This looks ok, don't like the FP view, looks slightly better than DQ8 graphically.

Would like to see a DQ10 on the PS3.

DQX may very well be possible on the PS3 if sales for FFXIII are good and if Level 5 continues to make the DQ titles. Level 5 would have created their own engine for the PS3 by the time any decisions for DQX take place (White Knight Chronicles) which should facilitate development.

It's different with RPGs though. RPGs and some other genres stretch out content, make the pacing much slower, there's no excuse for a RPG this 'retro' to be this short.

Well this isn't exactly a run of the mill RPG. It's an on-rails game where you defeat enemies by slashing at them with the wiimote. Basically Umbrella Chronicles without the guns. I've never seen an on-rails game last longer than 10 hours max unless you add in secret modes and other nifty extras.

Rumor is it's already being developed, so why not?

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker However where it says 21DX on this guy's laptop it says 21UQ on the site. But specs wise it's exactly the same. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Melmoth: The one site that shows a price of the laptop with the same specs says last known price was 367 euros. (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the APU in it is from 2016, so it's a recent model. But if you don't manage to sell it for atleast 100 euro, you're in the red. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Melmoth: Yeah I have a hard time finding out more details. It's not for sale at any shops anymore. The guy says it's less than a year old. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Melmoth: But on the other hand there's no guarantee I will get a nice price for it but i will be without an Xbox. (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Moonwalker: see if you can find out the price of the Acer. It seems like it's a fairly recent model, possibly current model. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Melmoth: I could still do the deal though, and try to sell that Acer. Highest bid for my OG Xbox One is now 100 euros. (4 Hours ago)
