The great Dragon Quest IX is an anniversary: 10 years ago it was put on sale on the Nintendo DS. Square Enix usually relives the games of the saga with adaptations of all kinds, so they are not strange that their managers are already thinking about doing a remake of the game, as they have explained in a special broadcast for the Japanese public. p>
” We’ve been thinking about doing a remake of Dragon Quest 9 ” Yuu Miyake, executive producer of the saga, explains openly. ” The Dragon Quest from 1 to 8 have already been redesigned or adapted several times, but 9 did not.
