A good amount of news came out of yesterday's Nintendo Direct presentation for North America and Europe, but there were also items of interest to RPGamers in the Japanese Direct. As with the western presentations, the Japanese video featured upcoming games for both the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch.
Dragon Quest also appeared in the Switch portion, with the reveal that the Switch version of MMORPG Dragon Quest X will be released in fall 2017. Those who own the Wii version of the game, which ends service with the release of the version 3 update, will be able to get a free upgrade to the Switch version. The other piece of Switch-related RPG news concerned Gust's Nights of Azure 2. The game, which is planned for release in Japan sometime in 2017 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, will also be released on Switch in Japan this year.
