Dragon Quest XII Teased

The next installment in the Dragon Quest series was teased. Dragon Quest XII: The Flames of Fire will have a darker tone to previous games, more of an “adult” game.

The player will have options, which change the outcome of the game, though how this exactly will play out remains to be seen.

In any case the command battle will see an overhaul.

Square Enix is aiming for a simultaneous worldwide release, but no further information was given.
