Yuji Horii Comment

“For the latest Monsters, it’s Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3, a completely new entry in the series after a while. For the current announcement, I only have an illustration of the hero and logo, as well as a mysterious creature (laughs), but in addition to new systems, new monsters, and new communications, we’re diligently developing the game with all sorts of stuff.”

A release date was not announced.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
