Dragon Quest, you guys! Dragon Quest! If the news that the Wii / Wii U title will be largely dependent on online has left you somewhat nervous about the brand's future, hopefully this fresh info from Japan's Jump magazine will rekindle your excitement.
Curtailing fears that the game's MMO-ish nature will cause the story to suffer is the promise that the story will be extremely beefy and will have a definite ending with a final boss. Fans of DQVIII on PS2 should likewise be pleased to know that the game world in X will be many times larger. True to the game's subtitle -- Awakening of the Five Tribes -- you play as one of five races, but curiously, you start off as a human and somehow transform into one of the other races. On top of all that, you can visit a blacksmith for item forging, send letters (and possibly items) to other players at the post office, and even build your own house!
