SquareEnix held a Press Conference literally within the last hour or so surrounding none other than it's flagship Japanese franchise: Dragon Quest.

With Nintendo President/CEO Satoru Iwata sitting ringside, It was announced Dragon Quest IX: Defenders of the Sky will launch for Nintendo DS on March 28th, 2009 for ¥5,980JPY($64.73USD).

And then the big announcement: The DQ series is returning home, as Dragon Quest X will launch exclusively for Nintendo's Wii console. No date was announced for the tenth anniversary title, but this is certainly more big news for the ever unstoppable Wii.

[Editor's Note] For these keeping score at home, Sony has now lost exclusivity rights to three of SquareEnix's four biggest franchises, with DQ headed to Nintendo, FFXIII splitting time between PS3 & 360, and SO4 at the very least a Microsoft timed exclusive~
