*RUMOR* Dragon Quest IX a Wii exclusive? *UPDATE*


Reader JasonMCG sent me an email with a juicy little rumor. The buzz going around is that in the newest issue of EGM to hit magazine stands, a staff writer by the name of Quarterman states that Dragon Quest IX will be a Wii exclusive. That is it, that is all the info I have received right now. Looks like we will all have to do some hunting for this issue! Does anyone have a subscription to EGM, and if you do, can you confirm this? Keep in mind, this information could be posted in the Rumors section of EGM as well, we just aren?t sure right now.

*UPDATE* The rumors are true! Well what I should say is that the above info is indeed in EGM, but it is posted in the rumors section. Below are all the Nintendo rumors from the issue. Huge thanks to NSider for the heads up.

-Nintendo will release an earthbound compilation for the DS, complete with touch screen functionality
- Square Enix is working on a MMO Mana game for the Wii
- If Dragon Quest DS (Joker) and Dragon Quest Wii sell well, DQ9 will go on the Wii

Dragon Quest 9 on the Wii would be a nice exclusive from SquareEnix.

Wait, that's stupid.

Of course if the smaller suplimental games sell, Square will put a bigger name on the console. It's a duh statement.

Got me all excited over nothing.

you got yourself excited, I put rumor first for a reason so people wouldn't it as fact :P

Actually the earthbound thing while exciting, probably means Japan. aka our western eyes will never see it. We could play every earthbound game on our DS/GBA's already of NOA would translate them. Somebody at NOA should be fired for denying us Mother3

The Mana thing sounds completley made up. They are already making a FFCC for wii, im not sure why they would work on such a similar project.

And dragonquest sounds good. Ive never actually played a dragonquest game but ive always been interested in the series.

Is FFCC going to be an MMO? If so that could actually work pretty nicely.. especially since it was such a hassle to set up multiplayer on it's GameCube predecessor.

And although it's not likely, and I'm not disagreeing with the fact that they wouldn't release two similar games. But Square-Enix actually has two seperate sub-development/second parties for these franchises; Brownie Brown (Seiken Densetsu aka 'Mana') and GameDesigner Studio (Crystal Chronicles), so it may not be so farfetched.

I hope FFCC is still just 4 players on Wii. Im rather sick of MMO communities. Internet Annynomitiy Disease ruins alot of good online games.

I play videogame to escape into fantasy, not to get cussed out and KS'ed by 13 year olds.

lols just like DQ8 was for game gamecube 100%. Ignore EGM, they're full of it.

No, it was just a false rumor made up by EGM.

EGM rumours DQ8 for GC.
EGM rumours DQ9 for Wii.

Anyone see a pattern yet? They're hassling.

I posted this... almost a month ago. But nobody commented on it since the rumor wasn't from EGM.

I kind of doubt it will happen. Most of the Dragon Quest series has been on Playstation and that's where there fan base is at. It's possible I guess.

Well that's completely untrue.

Dragon Quest 1-6 plus a dozen spinoffs: Nintendo

Dragon Quest 7, 8: Sony

That goes for almost every Square-Enix franchise unfortunately.

It'll be the same as always with primary DQ games: the console that sells the most will get the latest primary chapter which, in this case, would be DQVIII.

The end.

so what number of sales are Squareenix looking for in order to see DragonQuest on Wii?

3 millions copy sales?

Then NDS-Seiken Densetsu Children of Mana must be selling very good in order to get Mana MMORPG for Wii.

RUMOR: Square Enix may consider releasing Dragon Quest 9 exclusively for Wii. A final decision will be made based on the sales of Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker for NDS and Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen & the Tower of Mirrors for Wii. In addition, Square Enix is working on a Mana MMORPG for Wii.

they probably want to see at least around 500,000 to a million, those are usually good numbers for some games, but since DQ is a better game in Japan, I'm guessing more around 1 million copies at least to see DQ9 to come out for it.

I really hope this happens, since it will still be a long time before PS2 hits my magic buying price point. I really want to try this series.

Yes. Your right. I completely forgot that the series went through 1 to 6 on NES and SNES.

Actually that would show that Enix has no loyalty to anyone, they will just whore it out to whoever would make it the most money. It just happened to be Nintendo for many years.

Enix always claims that the Dragon Quest series will always goes to the console who has the most userbase. Up until now they did stand up to what they said.
