To celebrate the launch of The World Ends with You: Final Remix in Japan a little while back, a special event was held with a few select fans at the Square Enix Official Shop and Café “ARTNIA”. It was attended by the following representatives:

Tatsuya Kando – TWEWY Director
Tetsuya Nomura – TWEWY Producer
Sachie Hirano – TWEWY Writer
Masato Matsushita – Square Enix Official Shop and Café “ARTNIA” Producer
Ichiro Hazama – Producer for the Final Fantasy series

Final Fantasy X is one of the few entries in the series that received a sequel. During a community broadcast for Dissidia Final Fantasy NT today, Square Enix’s Yoshinori Kitase was asked about a possible third game.

Voice actress Marika Kouno asked if there’s been any consideration other than X-2 for a spinoff, sequel, or some sort of DLC. That prompted Kitase to say:

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.)”

Square Enix finally gave an update on the Switch version of Dragon Quest XI at the Tokyo Game Show a few months ago. We now know that it’s called Dragon Quest XI S, but not much else. That’ll be changing in just a couple of weeks.

Square Enix has confirmed a stage show for Dragon Quest XI at Jump Festa 2019. It’ll be held on December 22 at the following times:

During a broadcast today, Square Enix provided the first details on Dragon Quest Builders 2’s DLC planned following launch.

The company has shared the following:

V-Jump has an early look at the Dragon Quest Builders 2 demo arriving in Japan next week. Have a look at some footage below.

World of Final Fantasy Maxima never received a physical release on Switch – not even in Japan. But early next year, that will be changing.

It’s been confirmed that World of Final Fantasy Maxima will be going physical on Switch over in Asia. Supported languages include English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, French, Italian, German, Spanish.

As we know, Switch is completely region-free. That means importing shouldn’t be an issue. Play-Asia is already taking pre-orders here.

Square Enix has updated the official Japanese website of Dragon Quest Builders 2 with some information on the game’s Endless Battle Island setting; we’ve rounded up the details below (credit goes to Gematsu for the translation):

In Dragon Quest Builders 2, the residents of the island will actually help you build certain structures. All you need to do is make the blueprint and put the necessary materials for the structure in the storage chest. The residents will then proceed to build that structure according to the blueprint using materials from the storage chest.

Other than castles, you can also build magical weapons that can be used in the fight against the Hargon Order. Weapons include the Zap Barrier, which prevents enemies from advancing, the Sizz Tile, a trap that creates a pillar of flame when enemies step onto it, and the Woosh Vacuum, which attacks enemies with a huge tornado.

Enemies aren’t the only obstacle you’ll come across in your travels – you will also have to navigate difficult terrain. This includes underwater caves, strong storms and blizzards.

Ahead of the release of Dragon Quest Builders 2 on December 20, Square Enix continues to unveil new details on the game. This time, the latest update comes out of Weekly Jump with news on automatic construction by residents and a few fresh weapons.

The details on the convenient feature and new materials can be viewed below. The translation has been provided by Gematsu.

Cross-platform play between various consoles has been a hot topic in the gaming industry in the last couple of months, with Nintendo being very open to it while Sony often blocked any attempt at it. However, it seems like things are changing a little bit, at least for the upcoming Dragon Quest Builders 2.

One of the game’s key new features is the Bulletin Board, where players can upload pictures of the islands they created. The Bulletin Board also allows you to visit those islands yourselves. As it turns out, this Bulletin Board is shared between the Switch and PS4 versions of the game, so someone playing the game on Switch can visit an island from someone playing on PS4 and vice-versa. This info comes from an interview with the developers in the latest issue of Famitsu magazine.
