I’m most excited for DQXII, and don’t even mind it being just a logo because it means a better chance that the series’s composer problem resolves itself.
Seeing as Dragon Quest XII being in development was not in any way a surprise, my favourite announcement was the 2DHD remake of Dragon Quest III. Sure, I could play a version of the original now on any number of platforms, but I love the Octopath style and I couldn’t think of a better way to revitalise an 8-bit classic. I’m hoping that isn’t where the polish ends, but I am still excited by what we saw.
As for QotW last week, the wall jump in Hollow Knight was neat, with you sliding down as you cling to the surface. The Mario 64 jump, otoh, feels pretty horrible…
QOTW: By default it was the Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D announcement, because nothing else did it for me. Dragon Quest X Offline might’ve got me excited if they’d announced a worldwide release and my Dragon Quest XII hype train was meet with that biggest of red stop signs when they said “Dragon Quest for Adults,” I wanna know more of what that means before I find myself getting hyped over some gritty DQ reboot in a desolate open world with survival nonsense I’m gonna hate.
So I guess I also answered the bonus question, as well. The DQXII logo only announcement only served to remind me about how I’m still waiting on Metroid Prime 4 and Bayonetta 3, other logos I got super hyped for.
