Japan’s Jump! magazine claims to have the news of a brand new Dragon Quest reveal that it will spill next week. What will it be? What platform will it be for? Most importantly, does it even matter to the English speaking world if we never get it?
Rumors have been swirling about Dragon Quest XI for quite some time, but something tells me this will not be the case. Square Enix is going to reveal that on a much larger scale, probably at Tokyo Game Show or a similarly larger convention. My gut is pointing towards a new Dragon Quest Monsters game on the Nintendo 3DS that it is also rumored to be developing.
Square Enix needs to capitalize on the Yokai Watch monster hunting craze again. Sorry Level 5, but Square Enix has you beat in monster designs. I don’t care what 7 million Japanese kids say.
Jump! also revealed that the Nintendo 3DS port of Dragon Quest VIII will have a new dungeon with an original boss named Jahagaros.
We’ll have more next week following the announcement.
