Dragon Quest XI

Square Enix currently has ‘no concrete plan’ to bring the newly announced Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time to western territories, according to its official Dragon Quest Twitter account.

The pair of tweets read:

“Hi everyone! I know a lot of people have been asking if Dragon Quest XI is coming to the West but sadly we don’t have a concrete plan atm :(

“I’ve been told the team will consider bringing DQ XI to the West as we’ve done in the past for other DQ games but I don’t know anything else”

Dragon Quest XI is aiming for release across PlayStation 4 and 3DS in Japan during the series’ 30th anniversary year in 2016.
