Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.  

With DQX right around the corner, here's a friendly reminder that the game requires 16GB or greater of USB memory to play.

You can buy the game with a thumbstick bundle that comes with an in-game hat or you can buy an official standalone, which is priced at around ¥2,000 (US$25). It comes with an in-game shirt. Or you could just pay half that for a regular USB flash drive, sans in-game threads!

Dragon Quest X will be released on the Wii on August 2 in Japan.
