While it should come as no surprise that a series like Dragon Quest has another game in development, it’s no less exciting for fans to hear that series creator Yuji Horii is already working on Dragon Quest 12.


In a New Year’s message, Horii celebrated the series’ success in 2019, while teasing things to come, including the next entry in the mainline series. Here’s a full translation from Twitter user @BlackKite.

Happy New Year. Last year we started with publishing the movie Dragon Quest: Your Story, then releasing the Switch version of Dragon Quest 11, the mobile version of DQ Walk, the announcement of The Adventure of Dai anime along with its game adaptation, the production of [DQ]12 and more; even now after 33 years have passed since I made the 1st game, I feel very glad that I can do new challenges like these. Thank you very much to all users who have cheered on Dragon Quest until now, and also to all of the many staff members who have supported me. I don’t know how long I can go on, but I feel like I want to do my best just a little bit more. I hope this year will be an amazing year to everyone. I’m looking forward to work together in this year.

With last year’s release of the Nintendo Switch version of Dragon Quest 11 being bolstered by Hero’s inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it’s safe to say Dragon Quest won’t be going anywhere for a while.
