Square Enix unveiled its Tokyo Game Show lineup this week, revealing the Wii U version of Dragon Quest X is being showcased for the first time. Square, who released the Wii version of the MMORPG last month in Japan, says fans can expect new information about the game at the exhibition. Presumably that includes what the Wii U version has that the other doesn't, and how that affects the game's cross-platform play.
Other highlights from the announced lineup include Hitman Absolution, the Realm Reborn re-launch of Final Fantasy XIV, and Black Ops 2, which Square Enix is publishing in Japan. The Tokyo Game Show runs through September 20-23.
Although I'm not interested in the Wii U, I'm curious to see how the latest Dragon Quest title will fair on the platform. I've been a fan of the series since I completed the first three games on the Gameboy Color and Dragon Quest VIII on the PS2.

Some more info, courtesy of Andriasang:
Square Enix said last week that we'd be getting first details on the Wii U version of Dragon Quest X at Tokyo Game Show. Now it looks like we'll be getting a first look as well!
The name of the stage is "Dragon Quest X Wii U Demonstration Stage," Square Enix announced today. The stage will be hosted by DQX producer Yousuke Saito.
The official description of the stage reads that we will at long last be getting information about the Wii U version. The name "demonstration" suggests that we'll also be getting a live demonstration of the game, although the description doesn't specifically state this.
Don't expect DQX to make a surprise playable appearance on the show floor. The game will not be playable, Square Enix explicitly stated in its press release announcing the stage events today.
Dragon Quest X will also be featured in a "developers special talk" where Saito and director Jin Fujisawa will detail the game's big October update.
Series creator Yuji Horii will take part in a live recording of the Square Enix Chan! web radio program. He and Saito will answer questions about DQX.
Other Dragon Quest related events include a Dragon Quest X photo contest and a Dragon Quest Monsters Terry's Wonderland 3D tournament.
I didn't do this before but you can click on the "Tokyo Game Show" text in the article to see Square Enix's lineup for the event.
