The contents of “Dragon Quest 30th Anniversary Project Presentation” were the announcement of various works and events that enlivened the “Dragon Quest” series, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.
The first stage was Mr. Yu Miyake, executive producer of the “Dragon Quest” series. Suddenly, there was a sigh of sigh from the venue, saying, “There is no up-to-date information about XI that everyone is expecting today, but there is no up-to-date information today”. However, because there was a deep announcement, the stage was handed over to Ryutaro Ichimura, who produced “Dragon Quest Monster Battle Scanner”.
Mr. Miyake said that there was no information about "Dragon Quest XI"
When Ichimura appeared, he invited the game designer Yuji Horii, who was the creator of the series, to proceed to the stage and explained that the announcement would proceed along the adventure of slime traveling the map displayed behind. The first thing that was introduced was “Reviving Dragon Quest Builders Alephgard”, which will be released on January 28, 2016. Here, Mr. Noriyoshi Fujimoto, the producer, appears and appeals that it will be released as scheduled. Mr. Horii told me happily that Mr. Horii had arranged each part one by one at the time of “ Dragon Quest '' production, and he could make a city in three dimensions with the same feeling as that. It was.
In addition, from January 22, 2016, a trial version will be prepared for PS4 and PS Vita, but save data can not be shared. For those who want to know what kind of game it is, the existence of the trial version will be good news.
Mr. Horii will also be released with great satisfaction "Reviving Dragon Quest Builders Alephgard"
The next title is “Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3” which will be released on March 24, 2016. This was explained by producer Taichi Inuzuka. In this work, it is cucumber that can ride all monsters, and the number seems to be more than 500. The development is going well, so you can enjoy it on the release date.

From May 13th to 15th, “Escape from Ryuo Labyrinth” is held in Makuhari Messe as the first “Dragon Quest 30th Anniversary Project” in collaboration with a real escape game. Players will form a party with four people, select a profession, and clear the tasks described in the book of adventure. An example was given at the venue because only those who broke through the mission can challenge Ryuo.
At first glance, the meaning is unknown, but it seems easy for those who are playing the “Dragon Quest” series. Mr. Ichimura, who was in charge of the event progress, was impressed with the commentary and said “Thank you for answering carefully even though it was a mess”. In addition to the exercises available on the official event website, tickets are available for pre-order from 16:00 on January 13, 2016 to 23:59 on January 14.
This is an example. Can you look at this and derive the answer dragon?
Mr. Horii says behind-the-scenes such as "Dragon Quest series is a work that almost everyone wants to clear, but the real escape game clear rate is around 7-10%, so this is difficult"
Finally, slime arrives on May 27th, the 30th anniversary of “Dragon Quest”! Here, the episode at the time of the release of "Dragon Quest" in 1986 was shown from Mr. Horii's mouth, and since it was already in the production of "Dragon Quest II" on that day, the story of the release report & sales is very good The secret story was heard.
Also, when "Dragon Quest III" was released, he heard that he had a line and went to see the site on a bicycle. There was so much that it was so lined up that it seemed like I wanted to buy tea and behave. In addition, the release date of “Dragon Quest Heroes II Twin Kings and the End of Prophecy” has been announced on May 27th, the 30th anniversary.
Mr. Horii happily talks about "Dragon Quest", recalling the 1986 release date. The reason for entering the second production at the time of the first release is that there was a win
The release date of "Dragon Quest Heroes II Twin King and End of Prophecy" was also released for the first time. Mr. Horii said that it is a title suitable for the 30th anniversary because many characters of successive series appear.
Next, I introduced the “Dragon Quest Monster Battle Scanner” produced by Mr. Ichimura, who is also the facilitator of the day. This is a game set up in an amusement facility, etc., which scans cards and battles them. The feature is that the stronger the monster, the larger the size of the card called a ticket, and the ability to print the monster in a favorite pose. The operation is scheduled for summer, but Mr. Ichimura also revealed the specific time that it is likely to be around June.
According to Mr. Ichimura, the scanning part of the housing is based on the “Doragon's cane” motif.
From July to August 2016, the 2nd “Dragon Quest Live Spectacle Tour” is scheduled. The project is greatly projected as “a huge project that enthusiasts 400,000 people nationwide!”, And the venues that have been prepared are the Yokohama Arena, Saitama Super Arena, Osaka Castle Hall, NGK Hall, and Marine Messe Fukuoka.

For the three months from July to September 2016, the 3rd anniversary project “Dragon Quest Museum” will be held in Shibuya Hikarie, Tokyo. In the published image illustration, the lotto equipment is drawn on the front, but in fact, this equipment is actually being produced! Since it was a bit impossible to make with Orichalcum, a comment was added that materials such as iron were used, and there was a laughing voice from the venue. It is said that the exhibition will still be under consideration, but may the successive heroes meet at the entrance? In addition to the imaginary map that was posted, I was told that if you are a series fan, you will enjoy it no matter how many times you visit.
“Dragon Quest Museum”, where only image illustrations were released in advance, but there are still many unknowns regarding the content. Let's go and see for yourself
The 4th anniversary project, which has been undecided, is a collaboration project between the 30th anniversary “Dragon Quest” series and 15th anniversary Universal Studios Japan. It seems to be an attraction, but more than that is still a secret at the moment. In fact, as a proof of serious visits to the site, photographs taken by Mr. Ichimura, Mr. Horii, and people related to Universal Studios Japan were announced, but it seems to be very relaxed and the venue Invited me to laugh.
This is evidence evidence that the site is seriously inspected. It looks pretty fun [laughs]
After the commemorative project and related titles were announced, CDs and books related to the 30th anniversary were introduced. At this time, the book that Dr. Horii served as a draft, Dragon Quest 30th Anniversary "Dragon Quest Series Quotations Collection What is it [provisional title]" and "Sugiyama Koichi Works-Brave Sugiyan Lv85-[tentative title]" Announcement. Mr. Koichi Sugiyama, who was 85 years old this year, also started to share the same amount as Mr. Horii and knew various tasty shops in the foodie, and the venue was even surprised at an unexpected side.

One is the release date, which will be from May 27, 2016 to May 26, 2017, the 30th anniversary year of “Dragon Quest”. Regarding the progress, the story is almost finished, and the head part is a playable version. However, there was a report that it takes time to complete due to its huge volume. There is plenty of time to release, so until then, I would like you to play the “Dragon Quest” series that we announced today. The longer you wait, the more fun you have, so you want to wait without panic.
Regarding the release date, Mr. Horii seemed to be polo, and Mr. Ichimura was very disappointed [laughs]. However, there is no doubt that it was a happy announcement for the waiting fans.
Mr. Tsubasa Honda appears and Mr. Horii asks a surprising question!
After the broadcast on NicoNico Live and YouTube Live, model actress Tsubasa Honda appeared as a special guest. Not only because it appeared on TV commercials for the smartphone game "Dragon Quest", but also because it was quite a dragon mania, it was today's stage.
Mr. Honda said on the stage, “Please ask me anything”, “Is Barbara in“ Dragon Quest VI ”a master dragon? "A lot of questions about spoilers everyone was worried about." Mr. Horii was surprised by the sharpness, but responded with commentary that he had intentionally made the production because it would be boring when clear.
Also, Honda who was wearing slime slippers at the time of CM recording of “ Star Dragon Quest '', but when another person found that he was wearing metal slime slippers and asked for it, the holiday the day before They bought a lot of food, and spent 18 hours of dorakue joyful days, showing off amazing mania. There is so much admiration from the entire venue. In addition, Honda's “Dragon Quest for the Stars” commercial will appear on the air around the end of February.
When you hear that Honda is 23 years old, you are younger than Dragon Quest, who celebrated its 30th anniversary! It was impressive that Mr. Horii was surprised
