Last year’s long-awaited Dragon Quest 11 was the first major instalment in the series in nearly a decade, but it looks like we won’t have to wait quite as long for the one after that.

At the Dragon Quest Walk event (via Gematsu), where Square Enix announced the mobile RPG, Dragon Quest series executive producer Yuu Miyake also briefly touched upon Dragon Quest 12. Acxording to Miyake, the Dragon Quest team, including series creator Yuji Horii, have already started “preparations” that will lead to Dragon Quest 12.

“By the way, about Dragon Quest XII, which I’m sure is on everyone’s mind,” he said, “Yuji 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.”

Square Enix have confirmed that they will be making a Dragon Quest announcement on June 10, but it’s unlikely that it’ll be a new mainline entry. As Miyake puts it, it looks like Dragon Quest 12 is not even in proper pre-production yet, which means it’s still a few years away from release.

There’s plenty more Dragon Quest content coming soon though. Beyond the aforementioned mobile-only Dragon Quest Walk, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is out in a little over a month, while Dragon Quest 11 S will also soon be launching for the Switch.
