We're hearing that the event is indeed about Dragon Quest X. This business blog even has it listed as so. Let's hope the game doesn't jump ship to another non-Nintendo platform. I always get nervous about that sort of thing!

I'll be here to cover any/all news that crops up. I'll update this post with text blurbs as the night goes on. Let's hope for a fun event!
