During a livestreamed presentation, Square Enix finally announced Dragon Quest XI: Sugisarishi Toki o Motomete, the next numbered installment of the Dragon Quest series.
From what i understood, there is a different producer for both the 3DS and the PS4 version. And they are using UE4 on the PS4. I want this $hit now! Edit 1 Holy! The PS4 version looks incredible. Square Enix is back on full force. I love you Square. Edit 2 The Waterfall and the foliage looks beautiful. Can someone confirm that this is Single Player only? I am about to die from happiness here.
And they announced DQ10 for the PS4 too.
While DQ10 announcement for PS4 is great. But a Level 5 Dragon Quest game is just Megaton. Great day to be a gamer.
Which one is Level 5? I didn't see and I haven't read anything about Level 5 developing the PS4 version of DQ11 edit: It's NOT being developed by Level 5.
The people who made Dark Cloud 1 and 2 and Ni No Kuni for the PS3. So thats incredible news. @Gribble "The game's full title is Dragon Quest XI: In Search of the Departed Time, the producer is Saito Yosuke and Level 5 is involved with development in some capacity. The PS4 version (and presumably NX edition) runs on Unreal Engine 4, which means that the 3DS edition will be running on something else entirely, as Unreal 4 doesn't currently support the system. "
DQX for PS4 and states? Or still Jp Onry?
Hopefully it's released outside of Japan, i see no reason why they wouldn't. What a great time to be a DQ fan.
it is also announced for Nintendo NX but theres no logo for it.
because the NX is a codename not official name
who cares the game will be already out by the time nin release their next console failure
HOT DAMN SQUEENIX!!!!! Final Fantasy 7 Star Ocean V Worlds of Final Fantasy Nier 2 Final Fantasy XIV Final FantasyX/X2 remaster Dragon Quest Heroes Dragon Quest Heroes 2 Dragon Quest XI Dragon Quest X mmo When will this PS4 + Squeenix exclusive combo end I mean jeez I'm loving square again, if they announce a Final Fantasy IX remake for PS4 I'm going to flatline. Plus the multiplats Final Fantasy 15 and Kingdom Hearts 3........also tomb raider a year later I guess.....I'm caring about that less and less.
I really hope it doesnt end lol. Keep em coming Square. Next up is hopefully Parasite Eve Remake or Vagrant Story Remake. This gen is just getting starting. And Square will blow us away!
Yeah I hated Square Enix last year for various reasons but my sympathy for them is growing rapidly again. Let's hope they can repeat their glorious PS1 days and give us incredible JRPG's again.
They truly are fast becoming the best publisher this generation. What a magnificent turn-around. This whole 3DS/PS4 combo reminds me of Ni No Kuni, too. They definitely know where their fanbases lie this generation.
You missed out Final Fantasy DISSIDIA :) That will definitely come to PS4
Oh man, so much Dragon Quest is on the way. So many JRPG's coming to the PS4. If you are a fan of JRPG's then getting a PS4 is a must buy.
You forgot about the PS4 Dissidia game. Gameplay looks great.
If they remake FFIX they better remake FFVIII first lol:)
Agreed. I'd rather they focus on quality content, then trying to make it on every platform. That hurt them a whole lot last gen in terms of funds. I'd rather they just focus on doing what they do best with games and never mind trying to grow XONE's JRPG crowd. The reality is, it just doesn't do well on that platform and why keep wasting money, when that money can be spent on 2 platforms that actually do well in the east? I think this is a great move, Sega has been doing it since last gen and its only helped them as they bought Relic and Atlus and Creative Assembly with that extra dough. Its correct for Square to focus on the east and not waste money trying to appeal to the masses, that only lost them sales last gen from both sides. I like Square to focus on Japaneses content, I don't want them to go out like Capcom. Let Eidos and IO figure out the west on XONE, let the Japanese teams focus on Japanese consoles and handhelds, this was a great move by Square and Square seems to have had a huge plan for years to start developing on less platforms and its only showing right now, they are doing a beast job right now! Also can't wait to see what they do with the Bravely Default series!
Both FF XV and KH3 will be on the XB1. Dragon Quest has never been on the XB at all, so it's not surprising that these new games won't be on it. They will be on the NX and 3DS, so they aren't exclusive. The only DQ game I ever finished was the first one. My favorite was still DQ8 and I didn't beat that one either. DQ is huge in Japan and the XB1 isn't, which is why there is no XB1 version. If SE ever decided to move those games over to XB1, I would suggest a collectors edition. Do DQ 1-5 and a DQ 6-10. Otherwise, don't even bother.
I am going to buy every single one of those games you listed.
Also got announced for NX. Wonder if we can get a title update.
I believe the interesting part is that it was announced for both the NX and the PS4. Maybe this is a sign that the NX will get more multiplats than the Wii U did. I'm probably reaching here but it would be great if true.
SO NX is coming soon, so wii u gonna get less and less games?
the dragon quest series should have never left playstation from the start. i think if 10 had released on ps3 it would have been more successful.
Square explains their decision to go PS4 exclusive "Sony showed more passion".... Funny how quickly the exclusive 3rd party argument swings, in only one day
lol im sure it had nothing to do with the ps4 being the number one selling console of this generation.
I'm excited. Never had the platform a DQ game was on but always heard amazing things. After watching some ps4 visuals I am sold. With tales of zestria and baseria, plus dragon quest, as well as ff15/star ocean . It would seem the jrpgs have arrived come late 2015 and 2016
You'll love the DQ series, very old school in gameplay, the MMO may not represent all that though. https://www.youtube.com/wat... The game looks incredible.
But wait? I thought DQ would not be coming to PS4? The deep, deep lolz. Now those that stated that are now comically ghost and m.i.a. Many called this a mile away. This is surprising and not surprising at the same time lol. Also good to hear Level 5 on board!
"Update: Historical Composer Koichi Sugiyama will also return, alongside Dragon Ball‘s Akira Toriyama as Character Designer. A Nintendo NX version will also be developed and revealed at a later time." * Dragon Quest 11 = PS4,3DS & NX. Very Smart business move. * Highest install base for consoles & Handhelds + the newest console on the market. Probably getting all 3 versions...because why not!
3DS Versions shows regular version on top but the bottom screen is like SNES graphics style ? Awesome!
Where did you see gameplay of this?! The teaser isn't enough! I've been playing Dragon Quest since the 80s. Still stoked for more after all these years.
I watched the live stream... In case you missed the gameplay, here it is :) Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/wat... Its marvelous. All those years waiting.
Will it be localized?
Square didnt comment on that subject yet. But hopefully it do get localized.
Square Enix made the best choice here. They couldn't abandon either fanbase after all the support PlayStation and Nintendo gamers have given them all these years. An excellent way to celebrate the series 30th anniversary.
Square is doing an excellent job here especially making a huge difference between the PS4 version and the 3DS and they both looks really incredible.
exactly, reminds me of Ninokuni for DS and PS3. Massive graphical difference. The new CEO is a boss! FF7 remake and Dragon Quest XI, Builders and Quest II. How can i not be happy.
IF they're doing a 3DS version they might as well do a vita version, one can dream :( but i'll take the ps4 version and run with it.
they should remaster DQ8 for PS4 as i have always wanted to get into this series and that was rated highly on PS2.
I have the original PS2 version of DQ 8 and on a BC PS3 it displays quite well on my 55" HDTV so a remaster at least for me is a no buy. However for people who have not played the game and like classic turn based RPG's with an interesting story this is a really good game.
Agreed. With Odin Sphere getting a remake, Square should look into it, they always do pretty good ports anyway so I think they might do one ala KH HD Remix on PS3, they might make it PS3, PS4, Vita or something. @Nitus10- Thats good you feel that way, but a port put in HD will always be better then merely playing a low res game, upscaled on PS3 though BC. But at least you have options lol. DQ8 looked UNREAL for its time and it was nice to see PS2 get some turned based love for its time lol.
I am beyond ecstasy right now
ps4 JRPG master race after ps4 footage im not worried about the graphic though too bad no battle scene
Looks like that new CEO for S.E is doing a fantastic job, bring out the megatons!
Yes he is doing much better then that previous idiot of a ceo and with the games they announced so far aka DQ builders two lots of DQ and star ocean and FF7 the ceo is actually listening to it's people
Agreed. He had a plan for some time now and its starting to look like Square is getting things together again. Good to see them not trying to be EA and make games EVERYWHERE and try to make them more western JUST to appeal to all gamers, I'd rather they stick to making core genres and 1 to 2 systems and not seek releasing titles EVERYWHERE just because. Its clear they can't make money off of XB, they might as well only leave that platform to certain titles ie Tomb Raider, Hitman, main FF's etc. A Square that saves, is a Square that stays in business longer.
Oh God Yes !
PS4 in japan.....SAVED!!!!!!!
This game will sell AT LEAST 3 million copies on launch day, Dragon Quest is a freaking behemoth in Japan. Add the fact that is releasing on two different console with completely different graphics and I bet lots of people will buy both versions. PS4, ready to take off!!!! Oh and as usual the 3DS prints money like theres no tomorrow lol
I think I just came :D
They mentioned that DQX and DQXI will be on NX too.
"being considered" says the press release.
PS4 - the only platform with KHIII, FF XV and DQ XI.
Don't forget the FFVII remake, Dragon Quest Heroes 2, Star Ocean 5, and a NIER sequel. Square Enix is hitting PS4 hard with JRPG goodness.
Well that does it. -straps himself in- This is going to he one heck of a ride for the PS4. I am ready for more JRPG goodness. :)
Don't forget rise of the tomb raider as well
Start bringing out games like the above and it going to be harder for me to put off buying a PS4 although I would like to finish the backlog of PS3 games that I have. About two months ago I started replaying DQ 8 on my BC PS3 and it still brings back fond memories.
And Dragon Quest Builders
@nitus- Hey hey.....you finish that backlog, if your a JRPG fan like myself, you'll have lots of PS3 titles til you really need to get a PS4. PS4 is to not be held off of, its a matter of when, not if lol. I'm currently playing Persona 3, will get Persona 4 after, finish Valkyrie Chronicles, might re-play Tales Of Vesperia, play Tales of Xillia 2 etc You could hold off on a PS4 for JRPGs I would say until Star Ocean 5 or World Of Final Fantasy comes etc, which ever comes first I guess. Also Persona 5, though you can play it on PS3, it could also be your first PS4 JRPG...
Coming to NX is the real news. The first officially announced NX title.
Doesn't sound too promising ;)
Keep telling yourselves that kids.
https://www.youtube.com/wat... Mmmmm in my veins
Huge news for all the jrpg fanatics. Games and more games coming to the PS4. Its just crazy. This gen is just getting better.
Also announced for Nintendo NX. The console is real!!!!!
poor Wi U...
who cares about Wii U lol. that console is a joke.
