Dragon Quest XII “still many years away”
Posted on December 8, 2018 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News
While Switch owners are still waiting on Dragon Quest XI, the RPG technically came out well over a year ago. That leaves some fans wondering when we’ll see the next true entry in the series. Creator Yuji Horii commented on that very subject during a panel at the computer entertainment developers conference CEDEC + KYUSHU 2018.
Level-5 president and CEO Akihiro Hino moderated the panel, and asked Horii, “How is the 12th entry going?” That prompted Horii to say, “I actually already came up with the keywords, but I can’t say anything here. (Laughs.)”
“However, since Dragon Quest XI‘s scenario was well-received, this time I want the same reception for the gameplay systems, but I could also surprise everyone and make it an epic. Now I just feel like teasing everyone. (Laughs.).”
“I keep absentmindedly thinking about making the theme the feeling of ‘wanting to make dreams come true.’”
Horii ended by saying that Dragon Quest XII is “still many years away.”
