Dragon Quest XII: The Flames of Fate Announced
During the Dragon Quest 35th Anniversary live stream, Square Enix made several announcements for the franchise. Included were announcements for Dragon Quest Keshi Keshi, Dragon Quest X Version 6, Dragon Quest X Offline, Dragon Quest Treasures, and a Dragon Quest III HD-2D remake. While only a couple of these are confirmed for a western release, the big news was the final announcement. Dragon Quest XII is in development, though there’s no confirmation on platforms or release timing yet. Titled Dragon Quest XII: The Flames of Fate, the upcoming sequel is aiming to take a slight detour from the traditional franchise.
The Flames of Fate is being described as a Dragon Quest for adults. While the command system isn’t going away entirely, there will be changes to the classic battle system. The game will focus on giving players choices, potentially changing the outcome of events in the game. Series creator Yuji Horii and character designer Akira Toriyama are involved, though not much else is known about the project. Fans were treated to a short teaser trailer revealing the logo, and a brief explanation following it. While there is no release date, we do have confirmation of a worldwide simultaneous release for the game.
