Dragon Quest 35th anniversary stream time, how to watch

The stream will be divided into two parts, and the first part will only be in Japanese, coming on May 27 at 12:00 JST. That’s May 26 at 11 PM ET, and 8 PM PT. Click here for a countdown.

This first part will include news on several Dragon Quest games, mainly games who were never released outside Japan:

  • Dragon Quest X Online
  • Dragon Quest Walk
  • Dragon Quest Tact
  • Dragon Quest of the Stars
  • Dragon Quest Monsters Super Light
  • Dragon Quest Rivals Ace
  • Dragon Quest The Adventure of Dai series
  • Dragon Quest series official goods
  • Dragon Quest Island

The second part of the stream will be a talk show featuring Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii, who will reveal the “new lineup for the series”. This is where we will get new games announcements.

The English stream will start 30 minutes after the Japanese one, at 11:30 ET. It will only cover the talk show part, and include a live translation. The English livestream can also be found on YouTube:

Dragon Quest 12 Coming? Dragon Quest 3 Remake? Akira Toriyama stepping down? Predictions

Yuji Horii tweeted recently that the event will include a new announcement on “that game”, possibly teasing Dragon Quest 12:

Dragon Quest 12 was already hinted to be in development several times by Square Enix.

Other possibilities would be a remake of Dragon Quest 3, as Yuji Horii mentioned back when Dragon Quest 11 released that the world map of Dragon Quest 3 was remade with Dragon Quest 11‘s engine and used a test in-development.

Next, we could also see new sequels announced, with Dragon Quest Builders 3, or Dragon Quest Heroes 3. A new Builders might be quite different from the first two games, as the producer of Dragon Quest Builders, Kazuya Niinou, has left Square Enix to work with Type-Moon on Fate/Extra Record.

We could also get a Dragon Quest 9 remake on Switch by original developer Level 5, as the CEO Akihiro Hino hinted it in the past as well. There’s also the Dragon Quest game with Hiro Mashima chara designs that still wasn’t released.

Lastly, it’s also possible the Dragon Quest series will change its “big three” trio. Many fans believe that Dragon Quest 11 was the final game with Yuji Horii at the scenario, Akira Toriyama as the character designer and Koichi Sugiyama as the composer. Square Enix might reveal who will be replacing them for the future of the series. I’m personally seeing either Hiro Mashima (Fairy Tail) or Yuusuke Murata (One Punch Man) taking over after Toriyama.
