The Dragon Quest X beta is set to launch on February 23rd. Dragon Quest X is an upcoming MMORPG for both the Wii and Wii U, which will feature cross platform play. The first round of beta testers were told the date at the end of January. Square Enix are still recruiting Beta testers.
That’s the good news. Bad news is that you have to live in Japan to take part. When it launches Dragon Quest X will require an online subscription to play past the first few hours of the game.
You can still watch a trailer for Dragon Quest X though. That might cheer you up.
