Dragon Quest 12 Announced With a Teaser Trailer
May 27 is Dragon Quest Day and for the 35th anniversary of the series, Square Enix held a live broadcast showcasing Dragon Quest games currently in the works. A remake of Dragon Quest 3 that’s only coming to consoles, and a spin-off called Dragon Quest Treasures for unrevealed platforms.
The last announcement of the broadcast was a teaser that announced the next game in the series—Dragon Quest 12: The Flames of Fate. The trailer, showed the logo appearing in burning letters on cracked volcanic rock, and a voice asked in Japanese, “What is the purpose of life?”
Studio presenter JOY tried to ask some details out of Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii, who gave only obscure answers. “It’s about having options,” he said. “You have to choose your own way of how to play.” He did confirm “We’re gonna change the command battle,” though they’re not getting rid of the system completely. No release date of the game is announced.
