The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu included an interview with Dragon Quest X Producer Yosuke Saito and Director Chikara Saito, giving an update on the state of the game.
First of all, we get the confirmation that the game is currently in development for Nintendo NX, alongside the already confirmed PS4 version. About a year ago, Square Enix announced that NX ports of Dragon Quest X and XI were under consideration. It’s worth mentioning that this interview was specifically about Dragon Quest X, and it included no confirmation about an NX port of Dragon Quest XI.
When asked when the PS4 version would be released, Yosuke Saito mentioned that it will be released (in Japan) with good timing, well ahead of Dragon Quest XI.
A few details were also given about version 4 of the game, which is currently on version 3.3 in Japan. It’s being developed at the same time as new content for version 3, even if no specific release date can be provided. The team has already stared planning a new class that will be implemented with version 4.
