Yuji Horii: Dragon Quest XII is Still a Bit Ahead

Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii shared a message to celebrate the New Year, while also leaving a tiny hint at development on Dragon Quest XII.

The new message notes Dragon Quest XII is still “a bit ahead”, but Horii said there might be “some things that can be released before that.” The series creator also thanked his fans, and asked for continued support in the new year.

The only news we know on the next mainline game in the series is that Square Enix had been making preparations for the game, so it may not even be in active development yet.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age has been available for PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Nintendo Switch, and the 3DS (only in Japan). You can check out our review for the game here (we loved it!).
