Square Enix dropped some major announcements.
The next expansion for the Dragon Quest X MMORPG is confirmed, but there’s no release date yet. Didn’t know there was a Dragon Quest MMORPG? That’s because it’s only available in Japan. Sorry, everyone else.
Dragon Quest Keshi Keshi is a free-to-play puzzle game coming to Android and iOS. It features matching puzzles using Dragon Quest characters that have been turned into erasers, which is as cute as it is inexplicable.
This spinoff follows siblings Mia and Erik on a treasure-hunting expedition set before the events of Dragon Quest XI.
Square Enix clearly has a lot of love for Dragon Quest III. It’s had multiple ports in Japan, it’s available on Switch, and now it’s getting a full remake in “2D-HD” style reminiscent of Octopath Traveler.
The biggest news is the next mainline Dragon Quest game, which features a reworked battle system. There’s no release date yet, but Square Enix is targeting a simultaneous global launch.
