At the special Dragon Quest livestream held today by Square Enix, an interesting tidbit has been shared about Dragon Quest XII.
While not officially announced, Dragon Quest XII development seems to be well on its way as Square Enix revealed they are now making preparations for the said game. Yuu Miyake, Dragon Quest series executive producer, has this to say:
“By the way, about Dragon Quest XII, which I’m sure is on everyone’s mind—Horii and I are currently making preparations on series developments that will connect to XII. I think it’s still too early, but we would like announce it in some form, so please wait a little while longer.”
That’s all the information we have for now, but at least we’ve got some confirmation that the next entry in the series will indeed happen.
