Yuji Horii, the creator of the Dragon Quest series, wished fans a Happy New Year with a message on the official Dragon Quest Xwebsite. The message wasn’t just filled with well wishes, though. It also teased plans for the upcoming 30th anniversary of the series.
“Happy New Year, everyone. There is just one year to go until the 30th anniversary of Dragon Quest.
In February, we will release Dragon Quest Heroes, and in March, Theatrhythm Dragon Quest. Additionally, while still to be announced, there are many projects in planning as we head towards the 30th anniversary. And then there’s the release of Dragon Quest X Version 3.0 in the spring. Together alongside our fans and development staff, I hope we keep making the series even bigger and better!
Life is a role-playing game. Here’s to many more years to come of Dragon Quest!”
Dragon Quest Heroes is set to release for the PS3 and PS4 in Japan this year, though an English release hasn’t been announced just yet. We’ll keep you updated as more info on the plans for the 30th anniversary comes our way.
