Dragon Quest 7 and 8 coming west, says Yuji Horii

Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii seems to have let slip an early announcement.


Speaking at Japan Expo 2015 in Paris this weekend, Horii reportedly said both Dragon Quest 7 and Dragon Quest 8 will be released in French.

The comment was widely reported on Twitter by attendees; Gematsu gathered several examples.

We're working on the assumption that Horii's comment means that the 3DS remakes of the classic Square Enix RPGs will release in the west sometime soon-ish.

We've contacted Square Enix to see if the publisher has anything to share at this stage.

Update: Square Enix wrote back to say "no comment".
