KeenGamer: “See whether the major changes announced for the upcoming Dragon Quest XII are necessary. The series, renowned for resisting major changes to genre conventions, seems to be finally catching up to the way the winds have been blowing. Turn-based battles, the lighter tone and linear storytelling might all be getting the boot. However, many think these changes are unnecessary considering the triumph that was Dragon Quest XI.”
