Future Dragon Quests
In part two of the Dragon Quest 35th Anniversary stream, series creator Yuji Horii will sit down with actor JOY to discuss the future of the franchise. Square Enix teased that the discussion will include news about “what’s yet to come” in terms of new Dragon Quest titles. Of course, the studio did not provide any hints about the announcements. However, fans suspect that there may be news about the previously announced Dragon Quest Monsters game, a spin-off with Dragon Quest XI‘s Erik. Additionally, there may be news regarding Dragon Quest XII. Development on the series’ next installment began in 2019, so we may be getting closer to a release window.
