I really hope we finally see some screens.

I hope the game looks just like the CG cutscenes we saw from the original trailer.

CaterkillerMatthew Osborne, Contributing WriterSeptember 03, 2012

I bet we will see it and I'm counting on the visuals to be close to the cut scenes we saw. But tell me, dont MMOs usually have fairly lame graphics compared to none MMOs?

famicomplicatedJames Charlton, Associate Editor (Japan)September 03, 2012

Wow, this is surprising, so soon after the Wii version's release!
I'd expect some screens and a short trailer, which would be awesome.


By the way, look out for a new Famicast very shortly with a special DQX segment! :D
