In a New Year tweet, creator of the Dragon Quest franchise, Yuji Horii, just confirmed that the next Dragon Quest game, XII, has been in development for over a year. The series has been selling pretty well, with Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age available on multiple systems. In just two years, 5.5 million copies have been distributed worldwide.
