Square Enix has announced that it will be sending the Japan MMORPG Dragon Quest X to Nintendo's 3DS, though not in the traditional cartridge sense.

Siliconera reports that unlike its original launches on Wii, Wii U and PC, the port streams the game from a server onto the 3DS. This will put it in similar vein to its mobile counterparts released last year, or streaming services like OnLive or Sony's PlayStation Now.

While the streaming tech means the handheld's 3D capabilities aren't usable, the game should look comparably strong on 3DS, similar to Remote Play on Vita. That all depends on the tech working as planned, but Square Enix does have the iOS and Android ports to draw experience from. Meanwhile, a prototype screenshot shows Wii U controls tied to the 3DS touchscreen, including the ZL and ZR buttons, the right analog stick and keyboard inputs.

Like on Wii, Wii U, PC and smartphones, the 3DS port has subscription fees in addition to a base purchase of 3,800 yen. That comes with the traditional 60-day game time card and various other goodies.
