Wow so it seems that Dragon Quest IX will be released solely as a Nintendo DS game.
I don’t find that TOO surprising, seeing as VIII was the only one in the series that didn’t use pixel-based sprites. As much as I really enjoyed VIII’s graphics, orchestral score, and voice acting, maybe it will be more like VII – pixel-based sprites and polygonal backgrounds.
And besides. Wii? Too gimmicky. PS3? Not popular enough. Xbox 360? No one plays that in Japan.
