Today Sony Interactive Entertainment hosted a livestream from Japan and revealed the first live gameplay of Dragon Quest X Offline.
We get to see about six minutes of gameplay, also showcasing combat, which is likely what many wanted to see.
You can watch it below.
Dragon Quest X Offline will launch inJapan for PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on February 26, 2022.
In case you missed the original announcement back in May and the latest trailer from earlier this month, this is basically what it says on the tin, offering an offline JRPG to experience the story of the online Dragon Quest X MMORPG.
It’ll have dedicated NPCs that will act as party members, whom you can see in today’s trailer below. It’ll also go beyond the original story as a DLC portraying the story of the first expansion “The Sleeping Hero and the Guided Allies” will launch in Japan in the spring of 2022.
Unfortunately, the game has not been announced for the west and it wasn’t included in Square Enix’s Tokyo Game Show programming in English, which isn’t a good sign in the perspective of a localization. It’s quite likely that, like its online version, Dragon Quest X Offline will remain confined to Japan.
Of course, we don’t know that for sure, but the possible lack of localization would be a pity. It’s safe to say that this would be the perfect chance to let western fans experience the Dragon Quest stories they have been missing. All we can do is keep asking for a localization and hoping.
