News: When we'll get to play it is still a mystery though.
Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies will finally be available in North America starting tomorrow. But with the game originally releasing in Japan in 2009, Square Enix is already hard at work on Dragon Quest X.
Dragon Quest IX producer Ryutaro Ichimura answered a few questions from the game reporter at The Globe and Mail (of Toronto). One of those questions was about the future of the franchise:
Globe and Mail: What's next for Dragon Quest? Might the series return to consoles in the near future?
Ichimura: We are developing next title in the series, Dragon Quest X, for Wii. Please don't miss it!
Dragon Quest X was initially announced for the Wii back in 2008, but this is the first public mention of the game since that time.
Hopefully, we'll learn more soon.
