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.

      Man, this is all so exciting.

      Dragon Quest is balling hard right now with this, which I'm positive is DQ11 and on PS4, DQH1/2, DQ Builders, and its own Theatrhythm game (which I hope comes stateside). If only they'd bring DQ7 and 8 3DS, too.

      I'd care if they'd bother to bring them out over here. Still don't get the 3DS decision.

        Why don't they think we want these games, metroids, zeldas etc on a WiiU? Makes no fucking sense.

          It's all about sales and platform adoption. Making anything on the WiiU is just dumb, unless you're Nintendo and have no other choice.

          Sounds to me like most DQ games going forward will be on PS4 though, and from what I hear, all PS-family DQ games will be coming stateside.
