Dragon Quest Heroes series Koei Tecmo side director Tomohoki Sho discussed the possibility of a Dragon Quest Heroes III in a recent interview with Nintendo Everything.
“Obviously this is a Square Enix property so we can’t really say anything, but I have kind of mentioned to them before, ‘Shouldn’t we consider a third entry?’,” Sho said.
Sho continued, “So we’ve been talking a little about maybe putting out a third entry, but really the big thing is between I and II is there were so many improvements made. If we were going to go from II to III, what else can we put in to really impress the players who played both games that will get them really excited and really emotionally moved by it? So there are a lot of hurdles. What would it be that we can put into the game? That’s still something we’re not sure how to do yet.”
Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below and Dragon Quest Heroes II (pictured) are available now worldwide for PlayStation 4 and PC. A collection including both games is also available for Switch in Japan.
