Dragon Quest IX announced inadvertently?

updated 12:00 pm EDT, Fri August 18, 2006

DQ9 existence leaked

On August 11th, Dragon Quest composer Koichi Sugiyama conducted the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra in a performance of music from the first eight Dragon Quest games. In an interview prior to the concert, Sugiyama let slip that "[Dragon Quest producer] Yuji Horii is really busy at the moment on Dragon Quest IX, and I'm really looking forward to what kind of game he's making this time, as a gamer." No formal annoucement of that title has been made. The Dragon Quest games are extremely popular in Japan, with each release having the sort of furor (and merchandising) that accompanies a major Hollywood movie sequel. Comparatively, Western reception of the series has been lukewarm.
