The Wii may be on its way out, but that doesn’t mean one more long-lasting, blockbuster game can’t be released on it, right? That’s the current thought running through the minds of Square Enix developers, as the MMO Dragon Quest X has just released in Japan with the promise of years of support.
Instead of just releasing a huge title on a dying console and leaving it to its own fate, Square will be dropping “version up” patches every 10 weeks, as well as additional content that will enhance the experience. Support in the form of DLC is currently planned for the next 10 years, but with a Wii U version in the works, that number becomes a little less absurd.
This is a massive franchise over in Japan, and that’s why official keyboards for the game are being produced. Even though it’s on old hardware, expect fans to be experiencing all the planned DLC for years to come.
