Square Enix “Committed” To Bringing More Dragon Quest Games Westward


As the series continues to celebrate its 30th anniversary, Dragon Quest Builders producer Noriyoshi Fujimoto has reinforced that Square Enix is “committed” to bringing more Dragon Quest games to western audiences.

While admitting that the series isn’t as well-known in such regions, they believe those that experience it will soon marvel at the universe’s “variety and depth.”

“2016 marks the 30th anniversary of Dragon Quest series,” Fujimoto explained to MCV. “It’s not as well-known in the West as we would like but it really plays an epoch-making role in the console gaming history.

“If gamers were to ‘discover’ Dragon Quest now, they may be surprised to the sheer breadth of the universe, in terms of variety and depth. But they would also have instant access to something that has taken us 30 years to build. Dragon Quest Builders is definitely a great way of getting the feel of Dragon Quest while having great fun right from the start.

“We’re committed to bringing more Dragon Quest titles in the West as we believe it truly has potential to succeed even better. So watch this space.”

With Dragon Quest X and Dragon Quest XI destined for the home console, Dragon Quest Builders is also under consideration for release on Nintendo Switch.
