Square Enix hasn’t officially announced Dragon Quest IV, but Jr. Dragoon sent over an e-mail (thanks!) with something even more concrete than our trademark research. A NeoGAF forum user discovered the official site for Dragon Quest IV and teaser site listing Dragon Quest IV-VI(!) with their official subtitles. (Note: the official Dragon Quest site has “Zenithia” in the URL, which is a floating castle in all three games.)
As we predicted before they are:
Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen
Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride
Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie
Like Japan, the Dragon Quest trilogy begins with Dragon Quest IV and it is scheduled to ship out on September 16 in the USA.
