Dragon Quest Creator States XII & III HD-2D Development Going Smoothly; News on Latter Teased for Near Future

Famitsu recently interviewed the creator of the Dragon Quest franchise, Yuji Horii, primarily regarding his childhood and other miscellaneous aspects. However, the interview’s conclusion does contain light info regarding the games.

Horri has stated that development on the previously announced Dragon Quest XII and Dragon Quest III HD-2D is progressing smoothly. Additionally, news on the latter is teased to be shared soon, though specifics weren’t shared. Although, it is worth noting that Dragon Quest’s presence was confirmed for Jump Festa later this month, so maybe we’ll finally receive more information regarding the still highly-elusive title.

Dragon Quest III HD 2D

Dragon Quest Treasures is releasing for Nintendo Switch worldwide on December 9, 2022.

Dragon Quest Treasures follows Erik and Mia, both prominent characters from Dragon Quest XI, with Erik even having been a party member. However, in this title, these siblings are taken away from the Viking ship they normally reside in to a new world called Draconia, housing a myriad of treasures, including the Seven Dragonstones. Conveniently, Erik and Mia can communicate with the monsters here, allowing for integral cooperation regarding treasure hunting.
