Square Enix officially announced the next installment in the long-running Dragon Quest series during its 35th anniversary stream. The title is called Dragon Quest XII: The Flames of Fate, and it looks to have a darker tone than previous entries in the franchise.
While Square Enix didn’t showcase any gameplay footage of Dragon Quest XII, it did share the game’s logo, which you can check out below. No release date or platforms were confirmed, but according to series creator Yuji Horii, the company is aiming for a worldwide release with the game.
