Dragon Quest is just one of a number of video gaming franchises that is huge in Japan, however, as we all know, that hasn’t been the case here in the west. While the series is popular with role-playing fans it isn’t on the same scale as something like the Final Fantasy brand. Dragon Quest producer Yuu Miyake has reiterated that and hopes with the release of Dragon Quest XI in September on the PlayStation 4 in the west, this should change. Dragon Quest XI is coming to the Nintendo Switch too at an undisclosed point in time.
“From our point of view, [the series is] still not where it needs to be [in the West],” Miyake says.
