During the Dragon Quest 35th Anniversary stream, series creator Yuji Horii announced that Dragon Quest III is being remade in HD-2D. He explained that this was due to the popularity of the game. However, it seems that Horii’s plans go past just a Dragon Quest III remake and on to also remaking the first and second games in the HD-2D style.

He started talking about this during the 35th anniversary live stream after announcing the Dragon Quest III Remake and saying that “Maybe afterwards, we maybe make [Dragon Quest] 1 and 2.” He continued by saying “So, we’re thinking maybe 3 we can start, and then maybe 1 and 2 there would be some kind of unexpected surprise.”

Eventually, the other presenter flat-out asked if Horii was planning on remaking the first 2 games in HD-2D as well, and he answered with “Well, we want too.” 

So, while these remakes are not official, it seems pretty likely that the Dragon Quest team has plans to bring the first 2 games to HD-2D after Dragon Quest III. This whole exchange was translated by an official translator on the live stream, so if you’d like to take a look at the original clip, check it out below (starts at 50:00)!

The Pokemon Company has started a new program called “Project Piplup.” This project is cryptic in nature but seems to have to do with promotional activities featuring the Pokemon Piplup.

To mark the start of this campaign, the official Pokemon YouTube channel has uploaded a Japanese promo video for this project. In the short description for this video, it mentions (in Japanese) that the project is meant to “spread the charm of Piplup to the world.”

How exactly the Pokemon Company will do that is unknown at this time. But there is an official website, Twitter page, and Instagram to follow for Project Piplup and apparently more videos will be shown soon on the Pokemon YouTube channel.
