Yes Give me DQ VIII on Steam and an offline version of X:

Former Dragon Quest X Producer Yosuke Taito had this to say: Even within the traditional Dragon Quest series, Dragon Quest X is packed with excellent stories. Talk of an offline version often comes up, and I don’t think the possibility is zero. It would be great if we could introduce it to fans to play somewhere.

I'm definitely marking my calendar for this stream. I'd love a full on remake Ala 11 of the original trilogy to celebrate the 35th anniversary but that's just me being crazy. Realistically, I'd expect at least a teaser announcement or some aspects of 12 shown, if not an official announcement. Hope that the DQM game announced a few years back is shown too, unless it's still in development hell. Definitely expect Dai No Daiboken: Infinity Strash to be shown for consoles, especially since the Dai No Daiboken anime is still airing.

I am very excited to see part of this is going to be available in English too.

Also makes it very difficult to keep expectations in check beyond maybe just Dragon Quest XII announcement.

Also makes me even more excited to play some Dragon Quest games as I normally do around this time of year!

DQ1-8 Steam Release using SNES/DS/PS/PS2 versions of the game.

Profit (from DGrayson).
I'd rather have the 3DS versions of 7 and 8 with better textures and orchestrated music.

I'm guessing it might be one or more of the following: DQ9 remake, DQ10 offline, DQ12 announcement, DQ Monsters starring Mia, more ports of previous games, Dai no Daibouken stuff.

Less likely: DQ10 MMO announced for the West.

Probably Dragon Quest 3 Remake and Dragon Quest 12 announcements.

My guess is that DQ3 will be exclusive to the Nintendo Switch.

Isn't Dragon Quest 3 the last part of the first trilogy? I haven't played the first 3 games but it would be strange to remake only the last part.

Yeah, I'd think DQ9, which is still to this day exclusive to the Nintendo DS, would be the more likely remake candidate.

I miss the days where we got 3 Dragon Quest games and 3 Final Fantasy games every 5 to 6 years.

Infinity Strash and Monsters are the most likely games I think. Maybe a 9 remake and 12 announcement too.

Well, they teased it.

Also, it has more stuff going for than 1 and 2.

Currently watching the incredible anime remake of the Adventure of Dai
, and all these mentions of Infinity Strash...that's the name of his Ultimate Technique isn't it?

XII Reveal
X single player mode and brought over to West
VIII Remake
V Remake
IV/V/VI for Switch
VII/IX Remasters
XI Anime/OVA
Full fledged Adventure of Dai game
Entire series on Steam. I mean if other giants like Final Fantasy have done it... (barring possibly a long, long FF XVI PS5 exclusive period )...

Wasn’t Dragon Quest 3 already remade?

I’m thinking we’ll get a DQ12 announcement and a DQ9 (enhanced) Switch port.

Soon...

Edit: DQ3 was remade in 96, yes, for the SNES, but it's definitely possible for them to remake it again Ala DQ11 engine. It's arguably the most popular of the series so there would be certainly enough demand for anything DQ3 related. They did remake 3 a little bit in the development of 11 early on just to test the engine out, so... Maybe there is more to it to come down the line. Would be an excellent way to pay homage to the series as a whole.

Soon... We will see.

Hoping for DQ12 news, and hopefully it's release parity not only in the west but also across PC/PS4/Switch or wherever it's launching.

Ha. That's asking for quite a lot after reading it typed out.

Question - Is Dragon Quest Heroes (1 or 2) worth getting if I only sorta enjoy musous?

Cool, i hope for a new DQ (DQ12)
I don't need DQ8 on PC since i still have to play it on my 3DS.

As much as I’d love DQ12 to be PS5 exclusive (or even just Ps5/Series X) I’d be completely shocked if it wasn’t PS4/Switch also. The game needs to come out for Switch for it to have a real chance to be huge in Japan.

DQ has always come for the systems with the largest userbase. So Switch and PS4/5 are what I'd expect it for at first. It'll eventually come to any other relevant platforms later on, based on how 11 went.

I wouldn't hold my breath for DQXII. This is gonna be DQM starring Camus/Erik and Dai
Dragon Quest XII is very likely (and coming to the Switch). But I would expect multiple announcements. It is the series' 35th anniversary livestream, a couple weeks before Summer Game Fest.

Dragon Quest XI Ultimate Definitive final version XL.

Featuring 2 new characters and a monster raising minigame. But it has the graphics of the 3DS version

More Dai no Daibouken would be the surest bet.
DQ7 3DS Android/iOS ports and DQ9 remake for Switch would be safe guesses.
DQ12 is reasonably safe, if nothing more than acknowledgement it exists and maybe a 10 second teaser.
DQ Monsters with Mia, DQ Warriors 3, DQ Builders 3, DQ10 offline would be more risky.
Anything else I think is a long shot but not impossible.

It's started. The first half is updates on existing titles first. The English interpretation stream starts in half hour.
