There was recently a 35th anniversary stream for the Dragon Quest series, and fantastic news for fans is that the 12th instalment has been announced as Flames of the Fate with a new battle system. However, there was also a surprise announcement for a Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D Remake. Some people are asking if the HD-2D Remake will be on PS4 and Nintendo Switch, and here you’ll find everything known so far including plans for a worldwide release.
In addition to the announcement of the above plus X Offline, Square Enix also announced a DQ Treasures spin-off with Erik and his sister from DQXI. This will also come out all over the globe, which is good to hear as it means more DQ for everyone to enjoy in the future.
While Square Enix made a bevy of fantastic announcements, below you’ll discover the latest on whether the Dragon Quest 3 Remake will be on PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
When is the release date for the Dragon Quest 3 Remake?
No release date has been announced for the Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D Remake.
However, although no release date has been announced, the good news is that Square Enix is planning a simultaneous worldwide launch.
A gameplay trailer was shown during the series’ 35th anniversary stream and it looks incredible.
The footage starts off showing the outdated visuals of the classic title every DQ mega-fan knows and loves, only to overthrow it with stunning visuals.
Regarded as a HD-2D Remake, the re-imagining will use high-quality sprites with 3D visuals to provide a look that blends 2D animation with 3D scale and depth.
Is the Dragon Quest 3 Remake coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch?
It’s not been specified if the Dragon Quest 3 Remake is coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
Rather than saying whether the game will be on PS4 and Nintendo Switch, Square Enix have simply said that the Dragon Quest 3 Remake is coming to consoles.
You’d expect the title to be on both PlayStation and Nintendo’s handheld system, but neither are confirmed as of writing.
It’s also a shame that no release window has been announced either, but hopefully we’ll receive more news in the imminent future.
