The Dragon Quest series is almost as classic as the Final Fantasy series, dating all the way back to the NES. While Dragon Quest X has released as an online game in Japan only and is still ongoing, it sounds like the next entry in the series is already in production. During the Nico Nico Chokaigi festival, it was revealed by series creator Yuji Horii that Square Enix is currently “making the next” Dragon Quest game.
This of course isn’t very detailed, but the fact that he says next would lead you to believe it could be Dragon Quest XI, rather than a spinoff. According to Gematsu, Dragon Quest X producer Yosuke Saito and chief planner Anzai Takashi seemed rather surprised by Horii’s statement, so perhaps this announcement was earlier than expected. Hopefully if this news is true, the US will at least get the game this time.
