"Dragon Quest X" Hits Wii U in Japan on March 30, Beta on March 6

MMO will also be available in Wii U premium bundle

It may not have scorched the streets in the same manner as previous entries, but Dragon Quest X on Wii was still among the 10 best-selling games in Japan last year. The Wii U version is looking to add to that success in 2013, and Square Enix will officially release it in Japan on March 30.



In addition to the content found in the Wii version, Dragon Quest X sports enhanced graphics on Wii U, along with the ability to play on the GamePad. The ¥6,980 ($75) MMORPG comes packed with a ticket for 20 days of online play, and Nintendo will also be releasing a Wii U premium bundle that includes the game, a Pro Controller, a ¥1,000 prepaid card, a beta invite, and five super health orbs. 



Though the beta was originally planned for February, Square Enix announced a new date, and the beta is now set to kick off on March 6. There has yet to be an announcement regarding Draqon Quest X heading westward.
