Square Enix have found themselves in hot water after the release of Dragon Quest X on the 3DS. The RPG makers has made an admittance today, that at the moment, Dragon Quest X on the Nintendo 3DS is at an unplayable state. According to Square, the large volume of users wanting to play the title at launch has essentially overloaded the cloud servers, ultimately resulting in an unpleasant experience for users (unable to login, lag).

Square Enix has taken steps to resolve the issue, carrying maintenance on Monday 8 and will schedule more repairs until the problem is cleared. However, unfortunately, to avoid further issues with the servers – Square has prioritized current owners of Dragon Quest X and has halted shipment of the title for the time being.  Square Enix does expect to resume shipment soon, as the problem gradually gets resolved.

Additionally, Square has detailed solutions that may alleviate some of the problems that users may encounter, which you can read in SE’s statement.

What remains to be seen, is whether this debacle will have an adverse affect on the title future sale. Judging from user reviews at Amazon Japan, this issue could put-off potential consumers. As the story develops further, we’ll be sure to update this story.

About - Former friend of Mii-gamer’s Editor-in-Chief, Michael! Unfortunately, the friendship was ruined after a fateful night of Mario Kart 8. As the loser of the bet, I agreed to help around Mii-gamer as the Deputy Editor. Nah just joking! I joined Mii-gamer because I have passion for writing and Nintendo happens to be my favorite game company, it was the perfect opportunity to share my passion. I play all types of game, but I especially love online oriented titles. My favorite Nintendo franchise are 3D Mario platformers ( a bit cliche, I know).
