Dragon Quest XI is Not Coming to Mobile Devices, Says Series Creator

on December 29, 2013 3:28 PM

Despite the growing popularity of mobile games, not everyone is jumping on the bandwagon. During an interview (translated by Siliconera) with Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii, Square Enix mobile developer questioned whether Dragon Quest XI will make the crossover.

Horii responded by saying,

I don’t think that it’s as easy as it sounds. At the current stage, there are no talks about making Dragon Quest XI for smartphones. I believe that there’s still plenty left to overcome before we release a proper sequel for smartphones.

This may come as a shock to some, since the majority of the series will be available on iOS and Android devices in Japan, including Dragon Quest X. However, one could always hang onto the hope that as an audience continues to build for this series, maybe one day Square Enix will be singing a different tune in the future.
