This is the eleventh entry in the Dragon Quest series, the series has endured massive success over the years in Japan, but here in the west, it’s been a different story. The most popular entry to date has been Dragon Quest VIII, which re-released on the Nintendo 3DS earlier this year, is a fantastic entry point into the series.
Currently, the next game is being localized into five languages, and with a massive script, this project will run into next year.
