Dragon Quest series composer, Koichi Sugiyama, just wrapped up a Dragon Quest III concert in Japan. Following the end of the event (that’s some promotional material from the concert to the right), someone at the event tweeted that Sugiyama stated DQX is being developed with the goal of a 2012 release in Japan.


We didn’t run the story at the time because it seemed iffy, but AnimeAnime.jp (via Game Jouhou) have confirmed that Sugiyama did in fact make a statement to that end at the concert, confirming that he’s presently composing music for the upcoming Wii game.


2011 marks Dragon Quest’s 25th anniversary, and while we certainly don’t expect Square Enix to let it go by without some sort of celebration, it looks as though Dragon Quest X won’t be ready in time to celebrate the series’ 25th.
