Square Enix has today confirmed that the forthcoming Dragon Quest XI will be a completely offline affair unlike its predecessor, Dragon Quest X. The company also said that Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation 4 title will arrive before May 2017 in Japan. Square Enix has yet to confirm whether the game will come to the west, but many assume it will given Square Enix’s eagerness to bring across Dragon Quest Heroes on the PlayStation 4.
The publisher is also considering the release of the new title for Nintendo’s next-generation home console under development, NX, it added.
“We want people to play it,” “DQ” series creator and video game designer Yuji Horii said. “We are making the most of the characteristics of each gaming machine.”
