[Update:Dragon Quest X uses cloud functionality for 3DS similar to that of the smartphone versions. This means the game runs via Square's servers, rather than natively on the handheld.]
Let's face it, Dragon Quest X is never coming west. But the MMORPG is heading to Nintendo 3DS, Square Enix announced today.
The portable version supports cross-platform play with the Wii, Wii U, and Windows PC releases. It also comes equipped with a 60-day trial subscription, which should give the title ample time to get its hooks in players before Square Enix starts demanding coin.
Dragon Quest X will be available for 3DS in Japan starting September 4, 2014.
