Wada: Square looking at Wii U for Dragon Quest X

By Johnny Cullen, Wednesday, 22 June 2011 07:56 GMT

Square Enix boss Yoichi Wada has admitted that the publisher is currently looking at a Wii U version of Dragon Quest X.

Speaking at a shareholder’s meeting, Wada said that the company would think about making the game work with both Wii and Wii U, and that it was currently doing technical investigations on how to support the new platform.

The answer was given when he was asked how it could support releasing DQX on Wii when its gone past its prime.

Ports of Dragon Quest 1, 2 and 3 for Wii will be left alone so the series can celebrate its 25th anniversary.

Dragon Quest X was announced back in the tailend of 2008 for Wii, but has gone quiet since.
