Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii has provided a brief update on Dragon Quest III HD-2D Remake, stating that Square Enix may have news to share in the not-so-distant future.
That tidbit of information came about in an interview with Famitsu. Hori also said that along with Dragon Quest III HD-2D Remake, Square Enix is working hard on Dragon Quest XII.
“We’re working hard on Dragon Quest XII and Dragon Quest III HD-2D Remake! I can’t say much yet, but we might be able to deliver more news on DQIII soon. We’re grateful that people are putting big expectations on DQIII too.”
Horii went on to say in the interview that typically has typically ported / remade the first Dragon Quest, then 2, then 3 in that order. However, Dragon Quest III was pursued for the new HD-2D Remake version it’s more of complete game. Horii does hope players go back in play the previous two RPGs as well.
Square Enix hasn’t provided any information regarding specific platforms and a release window for Dragon Quest III HD-2D Remake, which was announced during a 35th anniversary event for the franchise in May 2021. It’s worth noting though that all of the major HD-2D games have been released on Switch first.
