New Dragon Quest game will be announced on July 28; may be Dragon Quest XI

While we here in the US are waiting for Dragon Quest Heroes and wondering what exactly Dragon Quest Builders is, Square Enix is preparing for a presentation on July 28 where they’ll announce a new Dragon Quest game, according to the latest issue of Jump magazine.

Square Enix hasn’t discussed what Dragon Quest game the presentation will be about, but rumors are circulating the publisher could finally announce Dragon Quest XI. To help fan fuel to the rumor fire is a tweet sent out by a Wall Street Journal Japan reporter who says an invite he received says the upcoming announcement will be "a new title from the main Dragon Quest series for the first time in three years."

Square Enix has also confirmed the official subtitle for its upcoming Dragon Quest Heroes II, which is Twin Kings and the Prophecy’s End. Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii had the following to share regarding the upcoming game. “Dragon Quest Heroes II: Twin Kings and the Prophecy’s End has a different world view from the previous game, and through that a new story will begin. Please look forward to a dramatic story. The ‘giant monsters and crowds of monsters-battle action’ that was so popular in the previous game is powered up, of course. There are new ways to play and additions planned, so please look forward to more news.”

We'll be sure to keep an eye out for Square Enix's big announcement next week, so be sure to check back on July 28.
