Following yesterday’s uplifting announcement by Square Enix of their newest installment in the “Dragon Quest” series, Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time, was some news that sent many gamers crashing back down. According to the official Dragon Quest Twitter account, the West may never see DQXI. The tweets regarding this matter are as follows:

Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time will be available on both the Nintendo 3DS, and PlayStation 4 in Japan sometime in 2016; just in time for the series’ 30th Anniversary.

On that note – what did you think of what was showcased of Dragon Quest XI yesterday? Do you think this return to form is the right direction for the series? Be sure to sound off in the comments section below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
