Wii and Wii U MMORPG Dragon Quest X is on the way to PC, apparently. I say “apparently” because the game is yet to make it outside Japan despite the franchise’s loyal international fan base, so this news comes via good old Google Translate.
If you’re the kind to enjoy mucking about with games in other languages – heck, maybe you speak fluent Japanese, and good for you! – you can try out the benchmarking tool (it’s not clear how different the PC port will be from the console version, but if the answer is “not much” you can probably run the game on your toaster, if it’s one of those fancy ones) and sign up for the beta.
Dragon Quest X is a strange sort of game; you start off as a human and can play offline, but then the MMORPG bit is played as one of five non-human races. Square Enix kindly lets kids play for free during designated timeslots but grown ups need a subscription.
