Square Enix had a big day with a stream that showcased some big news for Dragon Quest fans. The beloved and mega-popular Japanese series is getting an anime based on an early ’90s manga spin-off: Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai. Not only did we get our first look at it, but Square Enix also took the opportunity to announce an action/RPG, mobile title, and arcade game to support it.
The anime is set to debut this October in Japan, and you can watch the trailer below:
The other big announcement was several games, including a mobile game (iOS, Android) hitting some time next year and an arcade card game coming this fall. But perhaps the biggest reveal was an action/RPG for consoles called Infinity Strash – Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai, where players freely control characters using flashy moves to takedown iconic monsters from the series. Square Enix is publishing and Game Studio is developing it. The exact consoles have yet to be announced. You can watch the trailer below.
We haven’t heard word on the status of any of these ventures for North America, but will update the story if we do. With Dragon Quest XI propelling the series’ popularity and the recent Netflix move, there’s a chance we at least see the anime and/or action/RPG. Here’s hoping!
