This week held the celebratory ‘Dragon Quest Day’ on May 27th and Square Enix used that opportunity to tease one of the long-waited promises for the series. Previously in 2021, Square Enix announced a remake for Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation was underway. However, little on the new game has been shared since the initial reveal.

But in the recent YouTube upload on the Dragon Quest YouTube channel, it hints at the project with confirmed platforms. Most notably, the footage shares the ‘Mark of Erdrick’ which was featured in the first three flagship titles. This was then followed up by “The Legacy Begins” text. What indicates the remake is the ‘HD-2D’ logo that’s also brandished in the footage.

As for the platforms confirmed, the video lists Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Especially from Square Enix, it is continuing its support for native systems from Nintendo & Sony as well as keeping its promise to Microsoft for more Xbox releases. The initial partnership was formed just close to a year ago in 2023.

What’s more, Square Enix still has more planned in this vein for release this year. In that, Visions of Mana is prepared to launch in 2024. Previously, Microsoft got a heavy hand showcasing the new title in its January Developer_Direct at the time. Additionally, it was soon confirmed that the game is likely not coming to Xbox Game Pass.

Ultimately, Square Enix’s effort has become more apparent to be multiplatform. This follows a new development where the Japanese publisher confirms a new AAA initiative to ship its titles on more hardware outside of PlayStation & Nintendo. You can read the full report by heading here.
