Players can transfer their save data in the beta to the final game.

Owners of the Premium Wii U in Japan will gain entry to the beta for Dragon Quest X: Mezameshi Itsutsu no Shuzoku Online.

People who purchase either the Wii U Premium pack or the special edition Monster Hunter 3G HD pack will receive a unique beta code. If they redeem this code, they will be able to play the Wii U version of Square Enix's online RPG before it launches.

Furthermore, when the game is released, any progress made in the beta will be carried over, so players can continue from where they left off.

There were no specific dates given regarding when the beta would start or finish, but it is expected that it will open soon after the Japanese Wii U launch on December 8.

If this were true in the US, it'd be a day 1 purchase for me.

So I'm guessing NA and EU get shafted since all the WiiUs are going to Japan to support MonHun+DQX?

This might explain why GameStop is possibly canceling taking any more Deluxe Set preorders by tomorrow night. Nintendo probably plans on having so many reserves at launch.

Seriously. When Dragon Quest X was announced for Wii U at the very super beginning of this gen, I naively expected today's scenario; having the game within the first year and just blowing up the sales charts. 

This is huge for "core" gamers Japan I think, hearing about that and Bayonetta must have some people going nuts, probably wondering why they are being punished by God himself.
