If it wasn’t expected, next week’s Dragon Quest New Title Presentation will play host the announcement of the next main entry in the popular RPG series, according to an invitation sent to media.
Takashi Mochizuki, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal, reported on Twitter that the invite says Square Enix will announce “the first main Dragon Quest title in three years,” as well as details on various series-related titles. Mochizuki notes that there’s no information about platforms in the invitation.
The latest main Dragon Quest, the online game Dragon Quest X, launched for Wii in 2012. Wii U and PC versions later followed.
The Dragon Quest New Title Presentation will be held on July 28. The Dragon Quest series has sold over 66 million copies worldwide.
