Dragon Quest VIII for the PS2?
Dragon Quest VII has enjoyed incredible success in the RPG market as of late, but Enix president Keiji Honda is already talking about the next installment in the continuing series. Honda-san verified that early development for the game has commenced. Honda-san was unable to make a comment on the target platform for the title, however, rumors have surfaced stating that DQVIII is bound for the PlayStation 2. Despite the uncertainty surrounding the game, Enix plans to release Dragon Quest VIII in 2002. The latest title in the popular series would have some lofty expectations to deal with, as the game's predecessor sold an impressive 4 million copies.
