Dragon Quest 12 development update given by the creator

In May 2021, Square Enix announced that they were officially working on the next entry in the beloved Dragon Quest series. The game, which is called Dragon Quest XII: Flames of Destiny, was revealed via a new trailer showing off the logo and essentially nothing else. Since that time, many Dragon Quest fans have been wondering when Square Enix might choose to say more about the project. And while we still don’t have much substantial news to release, the project director has now given us a brief update.

To celebrate “Dragon Quest Day,” which takes place in Japan every year on May 27, Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii shared a brief new video that had him talking about the franchise. While much of the video had Horii sharing details about upcoming Dragon Quest spin-offs that will launch in the coming year, he also talked a bit about flames of fate. “We are working very hard to build Dragon Quest XIIbut there will be a lot more Dragon Quest to guide you until it’s over,” Horii told fans. DQXII wasn’t provided outside of that brief line, but it’s good to know that Square is still working on the project behind the scenes.

At this point, we still don’t know when Dragon Quest XII might come out or what platforms it will come on. Although Horii has stated that this is an entry that will be darker than its predecessors in a thematic sense, there’s still nothing we’ve been shown with regards to actual gameplay. Still, at this point, it’s safe to assume that the project will end up being exclusive to next-gen platforms whenever it hits store shelves.

when do you think that Dragon Quest XII will really see the light of day? And when might we start seeing more of this game? Let me know what your best guess is in the comments or hit me up on Twitter at @MooreMan12.
