The legendary series may be a launch title for Wii U

The million-copies-sold JRPG series, Dragon Quest, may appear on both the Wii and Wii U.

Dragon Quest X

Dragon Quest composer Koichi Sugiyama recently said there is a strong possibility that a new Dragon Quest title will be available in 2012.

“I'm aiming for next year and am in the middle of composing music for Dragon Quest,” he said.

While this comment did not specifically address Dragon Quest X, a recent Square Enix investors' meeting heard head boss Yoichi Wada make these comments regarding the rumored Dragon Quest X:

“We are thinking that we must release the game for both Wii and Wii U. We are currently at the point of looking at how we can make it a Wii U launch title.”

Not quite a firm confirmation, but a strong indication that the Wii U may have Dragon Quest X as a launch title. Considering how well the series does in Japan and recently in America with the release of Dragon Quest IX, it would be a very strong launch title for Nintendo's arsenal.
