This is not the first time he's said this, but I'll let this be another data point for discussion.

FFRing has an interview with Yuji Horii, mostly talking about Dragon Quest Heroes, but there's a few things about the series at large.

(On the series's 30th anniversary, and DQ11) "I don't have much to tell now, but we're making many preparations. One thing is for certain, Dragon Quest 11 will be an offline game"

(About action combat like Dragon Quest Heroes) "No, Dragon Quest 11 will return to the roots of Dragon Quest. Another action RPG would be like Heroes, and we want to distinguish between the two."

(On the possibility of a large-scale remake a la FF7 of older titles such as DQ3) "There are no plans at the moment, but there's possibilities in the future."

(On Dragon Quest for smartphones) "I think games should be designed for the platforms they're on. Dragon Quest 11 is designed for home consoles."

(On virtual reality) "I had the chance to experience Morpheus, and if I get the opportunity, I'd like to make something with that sort of technology."

http://www.ffring.com/news/Interview...6e5816117.html

As I don't speak French, my summaries come from a Japanese summary here.

Question is: which home consoles?
PS3/PS4?
PS3/PS4/WiiU/NX?
PS4/NX?
XBONE(lol)?
Only one of these?

Also, hoping for a 2016 release (at least in Japan).

Still can't believe the benchmark for graphics in a traditional DQ game is DQ8 from 10 years ago on PS2. It's about time they made another traditional offline one.

Also "home consoles" huh? Plural!? What do you guys think this is coming out on?
PS4?
PS4 & PS3?
PS4 & WiiU?
PS4 & XB1?

looking at the french interview, Horii doesnt seem to say anything about consoles. He just says it will be an offline game and there will be more information in the future.

Not saying they wont be, but there's not enough information to take "Consoles(plural)" at literal face value

edit: NM he does mention home video game consoles a few questions later, I thought that was the end of the XI questioning

He says it later on. He even brings it up unprompted, which is interesting.

Yūji Horii : Je ne pense pas que le succès des jeux sur smartphone doit être une raison pour ne faire que des jeux sur smartphone. Je pense vraiment que les jeux doivent être conçus pour différentes plates-formes. Dragon Quest XI sera, par exemple, un jeu conçu pour console de salon, car il sera pensé pour des contrôles à la manette.

.

I don't speak French very well, but he seems to be saying basically what I wrote in the OP.

I would be really shocked if this game hit Xbone even as a multiplatform game.

I'm thinking it will just be PS4, maybe NX.

Best bets are NX/PS4. NX with Nintendos' funding/marketing or PS4 simply because the PS3 will be dead by the time it comes out.

About DQ VII, they still "think about it" :(

There's no point in looking for plural info in either language since Horii would've answered in Japanese, which would not contain plural info in the first place. I just wrote "home consoles" generally to cover the bases. It sounds more natural to me than "for a home console," especially if there is a possibility it could be multiplatform. Based on a previous interview with Yuu Miyake, there's a very real chance it could be.

This is what I'm thinking, if they are going to do more than one console. Then again they only mention one.

Going by how SE is releasing their games lately (DQH, SO5), I'd say this is the most likely option.

I wouldn't expect something in the near future. Doesn't seem like a priority.

Again, confirmation is nice.

(On virtual reality) "I had the chance to experience Morpheus, and if I get the opportunity, I'd like to make something with that sort of technology."

I get a feeling this is not necessarily DQ related. Just read the Japanese summary, and he specifically mentions DQ.

The French version is not in plural either, if that means anything.

They also asked if there was a chance for Dragon Quest 7 and 8 on 3DS to be released in Europe, as many fans are anticipating it. Horii acknowledges that he has heard and read a lot of passionate requests to bring it over, and they would think about it. This is of course a non-answer, but it's better than no acknowledgement at all.

He mentions he has tried some VR, and he felt that it was amazing. He'd like to do a perhaps to do a Dragon Quest using that technology one day, though it should be noted that Dragon Quest Swords one of the games that framed the subject.

They also mention that something may be announced in the July 13th issue of Shonen Jump.

Stop saying NX guys. That's a non-console at this point unless DQXI ends up coming out in another 3 years it ain't coming to that. Right now we don't even know for sure if it'll be a home console at all!

I say PS4 is a given. If it's coming to anything else my next guess would be PS3. Somehow I don't see it going PS4 & WiiU. No DQ game has ever come out on two different competing consoles at the same time.

Hopefully they'll announce at TGS. This gem needs to get the ball rolling on new-gem adoption rates and nothing can do that better than the promise of DQ11 on PS4.

It is very likely. Porting it to other systems if the game is already on PS3/PS4 doesnt seem worth the effort considering which kinds of people own the systems.

If they skip Nintendo consoles this time i could see them planning to port the game later to Nintendos next handheld.

Erm not saying it comes to NX etc. - but just because we dont know what it is yet it doesnt mean that publishers and devs arent already in preparation for Software with Nintendo. The main point is - that whatever DQ11 ends up being it is likely that it would/could run on WiiU/Xbone, PC as well....so its not like they would have to prepare the engine from Day 1 to support some exotic hardware 2 years from now.
