  • News Square Enix Announces New Dragon Quest Remake For Xbox Series X|S

    "The legacy begins."

    Let's kick this Monday off with a bang! Square Enix has subtly announced that a new Dragon Quest game is coming to Xbox Series X|S, and it carries the "HD-2D" banner that was previously fitted to the Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D Remake. That game had never been confirmed for Xbox before today, so it's great to see Square Enix...
