Square Enix is revving up to announce a load of new Dragon Quest games during its 35th-anniversary stream. The stream will take place on 26 May 2021. There is an English stream and a Japanese one planned both for the same time.
While we don’t know what Square Enix has planned yet, we will most likely see updates on the AR Dragon Quest mobile game and perhaps a debut of Dragon Quest 12. There’s also been talk of Square Enix porting the original first three games to current hardware. However, that is just a rumour for now.
It has been a while since we had a new mainstream game in the Dragon Quest series. Dragon Quest 11 launched way back in 2017 with a Definitive Edition release in 2020. Given the franchise’ 35th anniversary, there’s a good chance we may see Dragon Quest 12 announced during the event. We reviewed 11 back in the day and it still holds up as one of the greatest RPGs of the last generation.
The Dragon Quest stream will kick off on 26 May 2021 at 05:30 am in SA. 8:30 pm PDT and 11:30 EDT. It is a little early for us but we will share the announcements soon after they take place. You can also watch the stream by heading here.
May 27th is Dragon Quest Day, and to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the series, we’re bringing you a special broadcast to showcase all of the latest information about what’s going on—and what’s yet to come—in the world of DRAGON QUEST. For the first time in DRAGON QUEST history, the show will feature live interpretation from Japanese, so that our international fans can stay up-to-date with developments in the DRAGON QUEST series, too. Don’t miss it, or you’ll miss out!
