Team Asano Commented on Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D Announcement

Team Asano shared some words about the announcement of the Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D Remake back when it was originally revealed in May 2021. The developers said that the announcement of the game was made earlier than usual, and they regret the early reveal.

The message about the Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D Remake announcement appeared in a post written in Japanese and shared on the Bravely Default II official X (formerly Twitter) account, which acted as a representative for Team Asano in this particular instance. In it, Team Asano addressed the unusually early announcement of the game made all the way back in May 2021. The English translation of the post reads as follows:

People have said that it took us too long since announcing the start of development (for the game,) but all of our past titles have taken 3 or 4 years to develop, so it’s nothing special, really.

However, the announcement was made earlier than usual (and we regret it.)

So, thank you for your support.

Formally known as Creative Business Unit II within Square Enix, Team Asano is helmed by developer Tomoya Asano. The team is known for developing the Bravely Default series, as well as Octopath Traveler, Triangle Strategy, the 2022 Live A Live remake, and most recently the Dragon Quest HD-2D remakes.

The Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D Remake will come out on November 14, 2024 for the Nintendo Switch, PS5, and PC via Steam. Additionally, Square Enix announced that the Dragon Quest I & II HD-2D Remake will appear in 2025.
