Edit: 7/10/13: Apparently Square Enix Japan has announced, in an offhanded sort of way, an "overseas" release:http://www.polygon.com/2013/7/10/4510088/dragon-quest-10-producers-discuss-the-pc-port-and-eventual-us-release
This may or may not mean "Western" as opposed to "Chinese / Korean," but it's still better news than we have had so far.
Has an adorable benchmark, available here
. (If you pass the benchmark, you'll supposedly be invited to play in the Beta.)http://www.siliconera.com/2013/06/22/dragon-quest-x-coming-to-pc-this-september/
Full PC port, character data shared between Wii/WiiU/PC version. The game uses "channels" like most Asian MMOs, so your character is universal and when you login you can pick between the 50 someodd instanced servers.
No news of a localization (Dragon Quest appears to be dead in the US - no localization announcements of ANY of their games) but this opens up fan translations in the future, similar to how the community has taken over PSO2 localization since Sega dropped the ball.
Oh, and because we're filthy Barbarians, DQX has an IP block preventing US players from playing, even if they do speak Japanese. Most players are getting around this via a VPN.
time to crash, the dawn is up, the sun gleems out glorious ps4 sunbeams and i can trade those sunbeams and do whatever i want with them.
