Dragon Quest III HD-2D Remake Confirmed for All Major Platforms

Square Enix has announced that the HD-2D remake of Dragon Quest III will be available on multiple platforms, including PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. This remake, originally announced in May 2021, uses the HD-2D engine popularized by other Square Enix titles. The announcement was made to coincide with Dragon Quest Day, although no specific release date has been provided yet.

A teaser video released on social media highlights the game's availability across various platforms, but does not mention a PlayStation 4 release, despite the initial announcement including this console. Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii has confirmed that he is currently playtesting the game, indicating that development is progressing. There is speculation that the entire trilogy could be remade in this style, though no official confirmation has been made regarding Dragon Quest I and II.

This announcement comes after a period of dormancy since the game's initial reveal. Fans of the series are eagerly awaiting further updates, including potential news on other titles such as Dragon Quest XII. The remake's development has sparked excitement among the community, especially given the success of other HD-2D projects from Square Enix.
