After previously announcing that services for Dragon Quest X on Wii will be discontinued soon, Square Enix has now announced that owners of the Wii version of Dragon Quest X will have access to a free upgrade to the Switch version of the game.
When Dragon Quest X is upgraded to version 4.0 sometime this fall, services for the Wii version (not Wii U) of the title will be discontinued. While unfortunate news, Square Enix has stated that they’ll provide every registered Dragon Quest X player on Wii with a download code for the Switch version of the title.
Those who prefer a physical copy will still have to purchase the title themselves, but this undoubtedly will please some of the Dragon Quest X players who still played on the Wii version.
Square Enix said more details about the upgrade program will be provided in the future.
Dragon Quest X launches for Switch in Japan between summer and fall, Wii service ending
Square Enix has announced that Dragon Quest X will launch in Japan between roughly summer and fall.
Square Enix also intends to end service for the Wii version of Dragon Quest X. With the Version 3 period of the game, service is coming to a close in order to update the game to levels that cannot be done on the old system.
Dragon Quest X localization looking unlikely, but could be reconsidered with enough fan requests
Nintendo streamed the Dragon Quest VII developer discussion at PAX from a couple of weeks ago, but the online audience was only treated to some of what was shown. We know that a bit of Dragon Quest VIII footage debuted at the event, and fans were able to ask Square Enix’s Noriyoshi Fujimoto some questions.
One person wanted to find out if we’ll ever be getting Dragon Quest X in the west. According to a fan attending the event, Fujimoto responded by saying that translating an MMO is a daunting task, and it would be difficult to bring over the game from a business standpoint. However, he did say that if there’s enough fan outcry similar to that of what happened with Dragon Quest VII, Square Enix could look into it.
Square Enix has already made Dragon Quest X for Wii U, 3DS, and Wii. An NX version is also planned.

During Square Enix’s special Dragon Quest presentation last July, the publisher indicated that two games in the series would be heading to NX. Those titles in question were the already-released tenth entry as well as the upcoming Dragon Quest XI. There was a tad bit of uncertainty regarding both games on NX following the presentation, but this week’s issue of Famitsu offers a confirmation.
The magazine spoke with director Jin Fujisawa and producer Yosuke Saito as the series celebrated its fourth anniversary last week. In the interview, Saito specifically mentioned NX and PlayStation 4 as being the “climax” of Dragon Quest X. Of course, there were no specifics about how the online RPG will play on Nintendo’s new system.
