Square Enix seems set to announced the next title in the long-running Dragon Quest series. A logo for Dragon Quest XI has appeared on the company’s website.
The image was uncovered by Gematsu, that also reports that a publisher presentation will also include Dragon Quest Heroes II. The event will also likely include a number of other titles in the franchise, including Monster Battle Scanner, Dragon Quest of the Stars, and Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King for 3DS.
While these are all announcements for the Japanese market, some might make their way to Western shores. We’re lagging behind on the Dragon Quest Heroes series, as the first one isn’t scheduled for arrival here until October 13.
We’ll keep an eye on the announcements and share any relevant information.

With Square Enix moving almost the entire Dragon Quest library to iOS (and giving the franchise a new audience), the time is right for a new entry. The adorable slimes of Square Enix’s decades old franchise will likely look quite nice on current generation hardware.
