Finally finished with the plat. Just and amazing game it was such a fun journey to go on.
All I'm going to say is I hope they can reuse a lot of the assets and make more in this generation. Especially a console DQ monsters that would be suuuuuper sick.
Also curious to hear impression from people that have a longer history with the games. How did 11 make you guys feel. I don't really have a super long story with the franchise having not even played a couple of them. But I can only imagine that 11 hits even harder when you maybe grew up on this franchise.
Yeah i really hope UE4+already existing assets means the next DQ is not that far off, maybe at the very end of the gen.
As I go through the odds and ends in this game, I am honestly starting the countdown to Dragon Quest XII around mid-late 2021 or 2022 at the latest. I wonder if the PS4 Pro's graphics were what Yuji Horii had in mind when he wanted a full 3D RPG. I mean what would the next standard be in? 4K? 8K? Higher?
Maybe you remake Dragon Quest 1-3 again especially 1 and you add bonus content this time. Perhaps make things more difficult and allow the character to go higher than 30. Maybe allow Princess Laura as a party member to have a second game where husband and wife fight evil.
Or... maybe the creators will do something basic and just make a DQXI expansion pack along the lines of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. Add in the bosses from previous games along with items and recipes you can get. DQIX was great to include previous bosses but that was all the way back in 2009.
Is XI leading into a new saga/trilogy? If so i guess the chances are even higher (haven't played it yet myself so don't really spoil it lol, just say yes/no in tags).
