We heard about Dragon Quest XII for the first time in December 2018. However, work on this title did not start until June 2019. Although Yuji Horii will reveal at the beginning of last year that the next installment of this iconic JRPG series is actually being created, only now the official announcement has been made available by the representatives of Square Enix.
During the stream, organized on the occasion of the 35th anniversary of the Dragon Quest series, a teaser of the game called Dragon Quest XII: The Flames of Fate hit the network.
The most recent installment, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age, debuted in Japan in July 2017, but the western premiere took place only a year later. This title is available on PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch (also 3DS in Japan).
Unfortunately, it is not known when Dragon Quest XII: The Flames of Fate will be released. We know, however, that the premiere of this title will take place simultaneously in Japan and on the Western market.
The creators promise that this part of Dragon Quest will have darker, slightly more adult content. Players will have to make many tough decisions. The game’s long-standing combat system will also improve. As soon as additional information is related to this title, we will provide it to you immediately.
