Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii has confirmed Square Enix's intent to bring Dragon Quest XI to the Nintendo NX in a Japanese interview with Nintendo Dream as translated by Gematsu.

The game (also coming out on the PS4 and 3DS in Japan) had previously been linked with Nintendo's upcoming system, but at the time Square Enix only said that the system was under consideration.

Also in the interview, Horii says that all three versions of the game will be released simultaneously to avoid spoilers.

Recently, Dragon Quest X (an MMO only announced for Japan) was also confirmed for the NX.

For those of you hoping that XI makes it to North America, Kim and Dan have a few things to say on the topic.

Our Take
Given that DQ X is coming out on the system, it's no surprise that the more traditional, story-based DQ XI is as well.
