Do you know what we love more than playing games? Talking about ones that haven't been announced yet, but are totally going to blow us away – Scout's honour. To be fair to Yosuke Matsuda, who's the president of Square Enix, he was asked by Japanese publication Nikkei Trendy about the company's upcoming fiscal year, where he teased a new console role-playing release.
"I think that we have a considerable amount of high-end games both inside and outside the country," he said, referring to the organisation's product portfolio. "Starting with Final Fantasy XV, we'll be putting out news for JRPGs. I think that we'll have a little surprise, too." He later stressed that this will be a "JRPG for home game machines".
We've been reading rumours for eons now regarding a mainline Dragon Quest on the PlayStation 4, and the sublime sales of Dragon Quest Heroes surely make this a possibility. Alas, there's nothing to really go on, and we're sure that the publisher will take its sweet time making any meaningful announcements. Please understand, etc.

If it's an actual Dragon Quest for PS4 and not an MMO I could see myself getting hype, but who the hell am I kidding, it'll probably be an MMO.
Toying with my emotions, putting a Dragon Quest VIII picture in the article. Sickening.
Square Enix? The same firm that announced a port at PSX? It's not happening.
Why isn't Kingdom of Hearts III acknowledged?
DQ8 is still the only DQ game I've ever played, and it was brilliant, so I'm not expecting anything like that.
When I first saw the tiny photo I thought SE was publishing Wonderflick in the US. The writing and background look similar. I've been waiitng for almost 2 years now.
I'm now off to rummage around my local CEX for an old copy of DQVIII.
A DQ HD Complete Collection on the PS4. Please.
No I won't be hyped SQEnix, you lost the right to ask PS fans that the moment you sold out with RoTR.
@NaughtyOttsel22 apparently that was Crystal Dynamics who decided that not Square so if true that must mean even though Square own them they are still operating independently which would make Square more of a parent company than owner I guess
I can't believe I traded-in DQ8 for SoulSilver... I'm a foolish fool!
I will take the wait and see approach.
Dragon Quest VIII-2, I would not be mad at all
@ShogunRok he should be hung from a tree, no doubt
you fool urself, if u get urself hyped up for Square Enix's tease of an announcement...
Well Crystal Dynamics can get bent for that then, but still SE shouldn't get a pass. Its 'huge' announcements are usually massive disappointments. And the fact we're still waiting for FF XV which was originally XIII Vs. for PS3 is just ridiculous. They announce KH 3 and we haven't heard sh*t since. Hopefully KH 3 is the game that's being talked about and not something new SE needs to get busy on getting stuff out that has already been announced.
@rjejr Same here, I've only ever played Dragon Quest 8, though I stopped around halfway thru, I kept dying against the boss.
@Gamer83 at least that's one thing everyone can agree upon with Square, they are consistant......consistantly slow
Dragon Quest or a console Bravely Default or a new Chrono Trigger-like game! plsplspls
@ToddlerNaruto - "I stopped around halfway thru, I kept dying against the boss."
That's how most of my games end I am happy to say I finished that one though, took over 100 hours I think, including some after the ending missions and possibly an alternate ending, it was seemingly a long time ago.
@rjejr I was referring to the Dhoulmagus boss fight in the Dark Ruins, that's the halfway point boss I kept losing to.
Hopefully Square-Enix will either remaster/remake Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, or release the original as a PS2 Classic on NA PSN.
