Although Square Enix recently stunned fans by revealing that the next proper Dragon Quest installment, DQIX: Guard of the Starry Night, would land exclusively on Nintendo DS, the Wii will play host to its own slime-smiting adventure in '07. Just don't expect traditional DO fare: Swords pares the RPG franchise down to a first-person adventure that has you wielding your Wii Remote to swing your sword, hurl magic spells, and defend against enemy attacks. Transforming the previously rote DQ combat into something this wildly interactive has a price, however--your progress through this world takes place on predetermined "on-rails" paths. So, while it'll never replace Final Fantasy as your RPG epic of choice, Swords' madcap battles and stylish visuals could make it a thrilling diversion.
