Hopefully, more news regarding Dragon Quest XII will be released soon. In an interview that was shared during the title’s initial announcement, it was revealed that “Dragon Quest XII is being developed with the next 10 to 20 years of the series in mind. There are parts that match the image of what a conventional Dragon Quest game is, but new parts are also needed. After all, innovation is always necessary as a brand.”

A recent ongoing mobile game for the Dragon Quest franchise is Dragon Quest The Adventure of Dai: A Hero’s Bonds.
