Thee Dragon Quest Games Are in the Works Right Now
Square Enix has officially announced three new Dragon Quest games that will accompany the upcoming anime series, Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai. The titles will be available across all of the platforms, from mobile to consoles and even arcades. The mobile and console games won’t be releasing until 2021 but the arcade game, Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai – Xross Blade, will release around the same time as the Toei Animation TV show. The new console title, Infinity Strash – Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai, has no official platform or date in mind, but it’s likely to appear on Nintendo Switch and PS4 next year.
At the beginning of 2020, Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii teased a big reveal and the three upcoming Dragon Quest titles fulfilled the teaser. Infinity Strash – Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai will be an action-RPG featuring the characters and locations from the upcoming anime, while the mobile Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai – Tamashii no Kizuna will bring a dash RPG to iOS and Android. The mobile title is being developed by DeNA and it will be similar to existing runner mobile games such as Temple Run and Mario Run.
While we aren’t sure what to expect from the new Dragon Quest anime, The Adventure of Dai, it seems like all of the upcoming games will be based around the world that the show creates. With the anime release coming this fall, it will give new fans an idea of what to expect from the series and returning fans an idea of what to expect in the upcoming games. It’ll be interesting to see whether the west will get the games around the same time as Japan or if the region will have to wait a bit longer for a localization that does them justice.
