Square Enix announced the new mainline game in the Dragon Quest series during a livestream presentation on Thursday: Dragon Quest 12: The Flames of Fate. Little is known about the follow-up to 2017’s Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age, however; Square Enix did not announce a release date or platforms for the new Dragon Quest.
But Dragon Quest fans have plenty more to look forward to, including a newly announced remake of 1988’s Dragon Quest 3, which will be rendered in the “HD-2D” style of games like Octopath Traveler and Project Triangle Strategy. The aptly titled Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D Remake is coming to unspecified consoles, Square Enix said in a news release.
Here’s a look at Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D Remake in action:
Square Enix also revealed Dragon Quest Treasures, a spinoff of Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age. Players will take on the roles of siblings Mia and Erik and “embark on an RPG treasure hunting adventure in another world.” The game is set before the events of Dragon Quest 11.
Finally, there’s Dragon Quest Keshi Keshi, a free-to-play mobile puzzle game for iOS and Android that will include characters and monsters from the Dragon Quest franchise as … adorable erasers. Players erase graffiti in the game, which you can see teased in the trailer below.
