Grab your blades, and get ready to slay some slime.
It appears as though Square Enix is not going to ease up on the pedal as far as Dragon Quest is concerned; according to the latest issue of Jump Magazine in Japan (thanks Siliconera, for the translation), it seems as though a new Dragon Quest related announcement is due for next week.
As for what this announcement could be is anybody’s guess- it could be an announcement pertaining to any one of the many Dragon Quest spin offs Square Enix has in the works, including Dragon Quest Monsters and Dragon Quest Heroes; it could be the announcement of something new entirely. Apparently, The wording in Jump states that the reveal will make readers go “Nuwaaaa!” Which just happens to be a reference to Dragon Quest V.
It might just be Dragon Quest XI as well- the last mainline single player entry in the franchise came out in 2009, which was six years ago now. It’s high time we got a new one.
Whatever it is, we will keep you posted. Stay tuned.
