WSJ: Square Enix to Reveal Next Dragon Quest Game on Tuesday

posted on by Karen Ressler

The Wall Street Journal's Japan Real Time section reported on Friday that Square Enix will announce its newest main Dragon Quest game on Tuesday, July 28.

The most recent title in the main series, Dragon Quest X (pictured right), was also the first online game in the franchise. The game shipped for Nintendo Wii in 2012, Wii U and Windows PC in 2013, and Nintendo 3DS in 2014. Dragon Quest mobile producer Noriyoshi Fujimoto and executive producer Yū Miyake stated in September that Square Enix was considering a western release.

Square Enix plans to release a Nintendo 3DS port of its 2004 PlayStation 2 game Dragon Quest VIII: Sora to Umi to Daichi to Norowareshi Himegimi on August 27, and a new mobile game Dragon Quest: Hoshi no Dragon Quest later this year. Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3 is also in the works for Nintendo 3DS, and Dragon Quest Heroes II and Dragon Quest Builders are in the works for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita. The first Dragon Quest Heroes game will ship for PlayStation 4 in the west in October.
