Takashi Yamazaki (Stand By Me Doraemon, live-action Parasyte films, live-action Space Battleship Yamato film) is the chief director and scriptwriter, and Ryūichi Yagi (Stand By Me Doraemon, Friends: Naki on Monster Island) and Makoto Hanafusa (Stand By Me Doraemon art director) are directing the film. The game franchise's composer Koichi Sugiyama is also composing the film's music.

The first Dragon Quest game debuted in 1986. The collective Dragon Quest series has since sold 76 million units worldwide.

The franchise's most recent main game, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age (Dragon Quest XI: Sugisarishi Toki o Motomete), shipped in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS in July 2017. The game launched for both PlayStation 4 and PC (via Steam) in North America and Europe on September 4. The game has shipped 4 million copies worldwide, including digital download copies.
