Dragon Quest 12 The Flames of Fate Announced

Nothing was shown besides 12 in roman numerals written in magma seeping out the ground with Dragon Quest above it and a narrator coldly saying, “what is the meaning of life?”. The series creator Yuji Horiii said it was about options and making your own choices and that it would be more adult. He also said that the command battle system was changing.

It is planned to have a worldwide simultaneous release although no date was mentioned. This will be the first mainline Dragon Quest game to get a worldwide simultaneous release.

Dragon Quest Treasures Announced

A new Dragon Quest spinoff has been announced. The game will be about Erik and Mia from Dragon Quest 11’s childhood and treasure hunting. The brief gameplay shown in the trailer suggests the game was from a third person over the shoulder perspective and involved interacting with monsters. It will also be getting a simultaneous worldwide release.

The lead developer said they cannot announce the release date and platforms it will be on yet.
