If you happen to’re aware of Dragon Quest, one different title you’ve got probably heard earlier than is Yuji Horri – the creator of the well-known and long-running Japanese RPG sequence that is been lively for greater than 35 years now.

He is reached a degree in his profession the place he is now receiving lifetime awards for his contributions to the video game business, and the most recent one comes from the 22nd annual Game Builders Alternative Awards. This lifetime achievement award recognises his profession and achievements, and acknowledges how he is made an “indelible impression” on the craft of game improvement and the business as an entire (GDC by way of Gematsu).

In his acceptance speech, Horri talked about how the workforce is at the moment engaged on the most recent mainline entry within the sequence and teased that there could be extra bulletins “quickly”. You possibly can learn the interpretation of his complete speech over on Gematsu:

“To me, Dragon Quest was like a manga, with the story unfolding by way of quick conversations. It was like a manga that you would play in your laptop. My workforce and I are at the moment engaged on the most recent installment to the sequence, Dragon Quest XII, in addition to loads of different titles. I hope that everybody around the globe enjoys them as a lot as you probably did Dragon Quest XI. We’ll have some extra bulletins for you quickly!”

If you happen to’ve not but given the Dragon Quest sequence out, there’s loads to select from on the {Nintendo Switch} – together with the newest entry, Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age. The brand new mainline entry was introduced by Yuji Horii and his workforce final {May}.
