The Dragon Quest Franchise Could Return to Sony Consoles According to Square Enix

on June 25, 2014 1:13 PM

During the Square Enix Investors Meeting held today in Tokyo the company illustrated its strategy for next the future, and Dragon Quest franchise Executive Producer Yuu Miyake answered a question asking whether the series could appear on Sony consoles in the future.

Miyake-san explained that it’s possible, as it has been released on a variety of hardware so far. Square Enix President Yosuke Matsuda followed up asking to be patient and wait for future announcements on the issue.

This comes after the series’ creator Yuji Hori strongly hinted that Dragon Quest XI is being developed for home consoles a couple weeks ago.

That said, Miyake-san also mentioned that user trends show that the series appeals to an audience that isn’t necessarily playing on dedicated gaming consoles, and he wants the franchise to be accessible everywhere, so more mobile Dragon Quest games seem to be definitely on the menu (surprising absolutely no one).

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
