We reported back in May that the next major expansion for Dragon Quest X, ‘The Shrine Maiden of Thorns and the God of Destruction’, will have players traveling through the demon world. Square Enix has released more details on three key characters, as well as details on the world itself.
The demon world has plunged into chaos thanks to the disappearance of the Great Demon King Madesagoura, who was the primary antagonist of Ver. 2.0. The demon world is waiting for the next incarnation of the Great Demon Lord to lead them, and the leaders of several countries in the demon world happen to be eyeing the empty throne.
