Dragon Quest IX doesn’t have Wi-Fi co-op

Friday, 19th June 2009 07:19 GMT By Patrick Garratt


You may have been holding out for news that Dragon Quest IX has Wi-Fi co-op. You can stop. It doesn’t.

“From the beginning of development, co-op play hasn’t been via Wi-Fi, but rather DS wireless play,” said a Square Enix Japan rep.

Sorted? Good. The game ships in Japan on July 11.

    :( What is it about Japanese developers and bloody ad-hoc mode?

    Why would you hate co-op? Either you use it, or you don’t.

    For me, co-op has given me some of my most memorable gaming experiences this gen. Specifically in Halo and Gears of War.

    because its become a deal breaker for some who wouldnt buy a game if it hasnt co-op in it. And I hate these games in which the option is implemented in the single player as well, basically gimping the experience if someone wants to go solo (RE5)

    What’s wrong with that though? Some people just prefer to play their games with others. I know that Killzone 2 campaign would have been a lot more fun for me with someone else instead of the retarded AI.

    I can see your point if they botch the single player for it though.

    This game does have co-op, by the way. Just not via wifi.
