Dragon Quest XII Started Development in 2019

In his recent New Year’s message, Dragon Quest series’ creator Yuji Horii confirmed that Dragon Quest XII production began in 2019, 33 years after he made the first game for the Famicom! Check out the full translated tweet below. Many thanks to @BlackKite.

Happy New Year.

Last year we started with publishing the movie Dragon Quest: Your Story, then releasing the Switch version of Dragon Quest 11, the mobile version of DQ Walk, the announcement of The Adventure of Dai anime along with its game adaptation, the production of [DQ]12 and more; even now after 33 years have passed since I made the 1st game, I feel very glad that I can do new challenges like these. Thank you very much to all users who have cheered on Dragon Quest until now, and also to all of the many staff members who have supported me. I don’t know how long I can go on, but I feel like I want to do my best just a little bit more. I hope this year will be an amazing year to everyone. I’m looking forward to work together in this year.

First day of Reiwa 2
