Dragon Quest XI Will Probably Be For Home Consoles; Platform Unspecified, Release in 2016

If you love the Dragon Quest series, but you’d like to play the next chapter on a home console and not on the small screen of a portable, there are good news.

During an interview on the radio channel Mangaku – N Channel the series’ creator Yuji Horii confirmed that Dragon Quest XI is in development, and it’s planned for the 30th anniversary of the series, which will happen in 2016.

Even more interestingly, he mentioned that he wants to develop it the game for the “big screen” indicating that the game is most probably going to land on home consoles, even if no specific mention has been made of the actual platform or platforms.

Personally, I’d definitely welcome a new single player chapter of the Dragon Quest franchise on a home console. It’ll be interesting to see if the game will be developed for a single platform or will go the multiplatform way like the Final Fantasy franchise.

Note: the picture at the top of the article is not from Dragon Quest XI, as no screenshots exist. It’s from Dragon Quest X.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
