Dragon Quest X still for the Wii

In an interview with Yuji Horii in the most recent Nintendo Power Horii said that the title would still be released for the Wii.Also that there would be news by the end of the year regarding the game. Here is the exchange between Nintendo Power and Horii.

Nintendo Power: Do you see any advantages to making Dragon Quest on a home console again?

Yuji Horii: The next Dragon Quest game, Dragon Quest X, will actually be released on Wii. I feel that some users will want to play Dragon Quest on the big screen, which is why we are working toward releasing it on Wii. Of course, in the future we might develop on handhelds again, so it's really a case-by-case basis. It all depends on what the customer wants at that time. Something else we hear is that players want a new Dragon Quest that follows the same system of Dragon Quest VIII, so that's something else we're taking into consideration while in development for a Dragon Quest on Wii.

Nintendo Power: Is development on Dragon Quest X proceeding smoothly?

Yuji Horii: All we can say is that development is going well and we're on the last parts of the game. We can't really share much else at this point, but by the end of this year we should be able to announce something regarding it.

So are you still looking forward to Dragon Quest X? Are you like me and haven't played any Dragon Quest games yet? Your thoughts on the series as a whole if you have played them?

Community's 3DS Experiences?

Anyone out there have hands-on 3DS experiences to share? Anyone been to one of the NYC 3DS promo events?

Any second-hand impressions from a friend who's played it?

I know that the GameStops near us are clearing space for the 3DS demo stations. I'm told nine to 14 days from now they should be up and running.

So, for me, I still have not witnessed the 3DS with my own eyes. Definitely looking forward to it!

Who's got stories to share?! Who's like me and currently never had access to the 3DS??

Blogger Wanted

For the most part, Maxi and I have become too busy to post blog-ishly on this front page as often as I'd like. So, as of now, we're officially accepting applications for blog writer.

Applicants should be comfortable with the following:
-This position does not pay! (Welcome to the internet).
-Posting at least once or twice per day. Posts don't have to be long or involved (Welcome to blogging!).
-Committing to the project for the foreseeable future.
-Reasonably accurate spelling/grammar/punctuation (I know I've set the bar fairly low!).
-Avoiding sensationalism and flame bait at all costs.
-Shining a spotlight on the positives of Nintendo gaming and gaming in general. Goodness knows plenty of websites are already doing a splendid job covering the negatives!

If you think you've got what it takes, send an email to and let's talk!

Tomorrow night should be a good one for a site chat at 8pm EST.

Hope to see you there! I think GoldenEye, TvC and MH3 should cover the games of the moment. Come prepared for fun!
