Series creator Yuji Horii recently confirmed Dragon Quest 12 is in development, having started production sometime in 2019.
Good to hear just please, let the main character talk in this one and get him involved with the overall story The main character in XI was so special yet he never said a word, he just went along with what everyone said or told him to do.
Are you new to Dragon Quest?
No After 11 or so games it’s annoying now
You always somehow have the worst takes
Like your comment then...
Agreed. I didn't mind with past games. But this game made it painfully obvious how annoying a silent protagonist is.
Exactly my point This game was the tipping point for me, it's so painfully obvious now.
LOL IKR! That silent treatment. It's silly.
I love the franchise but it desperate needs a new vision. It cannot stay the same!!! The game feels like a coloring book for kids and the main character does not even talk!!!! If they go with the same old formula, I won't support them anymore.
Why fix if its not broke? And DQ11 proved that staying with the old formula works and DQ being finally successful in the west. Final Fantasy decided to change the formula and look what has happened to the franchise.
So much this!
I agree with this also. It would be nice if this new DQ did something a bit different. Anything would be a welcome change.
Oh adding something new is perfectly welcomed as long sa the core game stays intact.
I know it's a long way off, but Dragon Quest XII day one when it does come out.
Let the Japanese voices be part of the game. The dragon quest English dub has always been an ear sore to listen to
Cool deal. Would it be a PS5 or Switch game? Or both even?
Probably can't run on Switch.
It will likely use Switch as it's base. DQ is one of the most popular series in Japan and portable sell best in Japan. Switch is the best selling platform in Japan. DQX was on Wii and DQIX was on DS. DQ series is more traditionally on Nintendo platforms.
Well DQXI was released on 3DS, and outsold the PS4 version in japan. If they made XI run on 3DS, you would have to be a complete fool to think XII would not come to Switch.
You can bet they will do everything in their power to put this one on the Switch.
Awesome. My first DQ game was 11, and now I'm hooked.
Good good. As long as it stays on consoles and pc.
Where the hell else would it go? 🤣
Mobile lol. I also mean to say on every best hardware available itll be released by (probably ps5 and pc). Like dq9 being on the ds only and 10 which was on the wii and even mobile. 7+8 "remasters" were on the 3ds only. Im hoping they keep dq on current consoles and pc thanks to the success of dq11. This is square after all.
I am pretty sure PS5, Switch, and PC are safe bets for what the game will end up on.
Shafting the PS4/PC players in order to please the nintendo crowd ain't fun, will instead wait a year for the inveitable definitive edition.
