Dragon Quest XI is currently in development, series creator Yuji Horii said during a recent radio program.
Horii appeared on the FM West Tokyo Radio program Mangaku N-Channel SP, where he said the sequel was in development for the first time.
The program featured a look back at the Dragon Quest series, with Horii recalling his personal experiences and stories.
When the topic of Dragon Quest‘s future came up, Horii said development of Dragon Quest XI is advancing towards the series’ 30th anniversary, which is in 2016. He also said he wants to play it on a big screen, suggesting the game is in development for console (rather than smartphones). A specific platform was not revealed.
We last heard of a new Dragon Quest in April, where Horii said that Square Enix is making “the next” game, but wasn’t clear about whether it was Dragon Quest XI.
Thanks, Inside Games.
