Yuji Horii, series creator on Dragon Quest, has revealed to Famitsu during a chat at the World Cosplay Summit 2023 that development on the Dragon Quest III In HD-2D project is “progressing quite steadily,” although wasn’t able to offer any new updates on the highly anticipated Dragon Quest XII: The Flames Of Fate.
Both games were announced in May 2021, and when asked about an update on both projects, Horri-san told the publication:
Dragon Quest III in HD-2D is progressing quite steadily. As for Dragon Quest XII, there’s still not much I can say. We’re working on a variety of things, so I hope everyone can continue to look forward to them.
Dragon Quest III HD-2D is a modern revamp of the classic 1988 NES title Dragon Quest: The Seeds of Salvation, which launched in the US in 1992 and was given a Japanese-only SNES conversion the following year.
