New Dragon Quest Monsters in development for Consoles

During a Dragon Quest Monsters 20th anniversary “Coming-of-Age Ceremony” live stream, Square Enix revealed that a new Dragon Quest Monsters game is in development for consoles. 

Details are sparse at the moment, but we know this is not a game in the Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker sub-series and it will be a new title instead. We also know the game will feature protagonists Erik and Mia.


The most recent entry in the Dragon Quest Monsters series - Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 - released for Nintendo 3DS in Japan in 2016 and never received an official localization. Hopefully with the recent track record of Dragon Quest spinoffs like Builders and Heroes receiving localizations, this new game will also head to Western shores eventually.
