What is “Dragon Quest Wars?” That’s a pretty good question! This would appear to be some sort of Dragon Quest spinoff, though nothing is known for sure yet. Instead of an RPG, Dragon Quest Wars may be focused around strategic elements. Square Enix filed for the trademark on April 23rd and it was approved on April 27th.

– 32 max friends saved. Tried to get 64 but fell into problems.
– LAN play cut because the Wii doesn’t properly support it. When playing the Wii still wants to connect to Nintendo’s servers, which causes problems when trying to play locally. Tried to work it out with Nintendo but no viable solution came up.
– Lobby allows for voting of weapon sets, map, etc.
– No ‘classes’, but character customisation does exist.
– No DLC.
– 6 to 8 hours for the single player, longer to unlock and find everything.
– Wanted to do custom soundtracks, but fell through.
– Five playable ‘characters’ for multiplayer with a wealth of skin altering options for further customisation.
– Lots of unlockables including cheats, concept art, achievements, and more.
– Multiplayer has 3 ‘Game Types’ with 13 ‘Game Modes’. 8 weapon sets. 7 maps.
– Ranking system to show your skill level. No hint that anything is ‘unlocked’, just a ranking of skill.
