Dragon Quest executive producer discusses the future of the franchise

During Square Enix’s 38th annual meeting of stockholders, a question about the future of the Dragon Quest came out. Yu Miyake, Dragon Quest series executive producer, answered the question with the following.

“Both Horii-san and Sugiyama-sensei are doing great [laughs]. We recently hit the 30th anniversary, but they’re doing fine and working as usual. Sugiyama-sensei has been saying ‘So the next one will be the last one, huh,’ while at it. The most important thing for the Dragon Quest series is having Horii-san, Sugiyama-sensei, Akira Toriyama-san work together.

I have thought about what’s next, but I try not to think about it [laughs]. All the fans say they want to see Horii-san and Sugiyama-san continue making it, but I’ve been thinking about all kinds of things like what to do when they’re not longer able to do so, but I’ll just say that I haven’t given it some thought for now [laughs].”


If Squenix can't do DQ without Yuji Hori, then they may as well forget the idea of doing DQ.

Really, even Nintendo is able to handle Mario and Zelda fine without their creators even butting in.
