[UPDATE] Square Enix has toned down its commitment to releasing Dragon Quest X and Dragon Quest XI for Nintendo's NX. Asked for clarification on its position regarding the console, a spokesperson for the company said the releases are "under consideration" but it doesn't have "further information to share at the moment.[UPDATE ENDS]
The first two games announced for NX, the next games console from Nintendo, have been revealed as Dragon Quest X and Dragon Quest XI.
Details beyond the plans to release the games on NX were not provided. Nintendo is not expected to reveal details about its new games system until 2016.
Nintendo confirmed its next home console is codenamed the NX in March 2015, but nothing is known about the hardware yet. The company has said it does not plan to fully reveal the hardware until 2016.
At the time of its announcement, Nintendo said the project represents a "brand-new concept," but didn't elaborate further.
A report has indicated that Nintendo could begin assembly of the NX in October, as the company has signed a contract with Foxcon Electronics and wants to begin pilot assembly on the hardware by October "at the latest."
This report has not yet been verified, however, and Nintendo is yet to announce release plans.
"NX is a new platform, so the installed base will have to be built up from zero," it said. "When NX is launched, there already will be a certain volume of Nintendo 3DS and Wii U hardware widely existing in the market, so from a software business perspective, it would be highly inefficient to stop releasing titles for Nintendo 3DS or Wii U right after the launch of NX."
The company has been adamant that the NX is not a simple replacement for the Wii U and 3DS.
