(RPG + rail shooter) / Wii = Dragon Quest Swords

Over at Wii.TV is a gameplay video of Dragon Quest Swords, which looks like an interesting take on the RPG genre. If you’ve played Killer 7, you’ll know that playing a game on rails doesn’t necessarily take away from an exciting experience. The boss battle with the Golem even reminds me of Mike Tyson’s Punch Out. Maybe it’s the nostalgia that this cross-genre title brings out in me, but this game sure looks like a good time.

How do you think Wii will change the RPG genre?
