Next Dragon Quest Unlikely for Smartphones

Next Dragon Quest Unlikely for Smartphones on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

In a Famitsu blog with Square Enix mobile developer Takehiro Andou, he discussed the next title in the series.

Andou was quizzed on the possibility of a main-line Dragon Quest entry being developed for smartphones as well, but franchise creator Yuji Horii believes that "smartphones are smartphones, and they're not game consoles", noting how there are "no talks" about releasing a new main-series game, like Dragon Quest XI, on these devices.

He feels that these devices should offer "something to those who only have smartphones", rather than replicating the console experience.

Is there room for console-level RPGs like Dragon Quest on smartphones?

This is good news, at least SOMEONE at Square has a good head on their shoulders.

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422
