Dragon Quest IX still exists

We haven't heard much about Dragon Quest IX for a while. Most of the news coming out about the franchise in the last month or so has been focused on the Dragon Quest IV remake, instead of, you know, the new one.

These screens are evidence that the game is still being made and still exists, and that non-remake games are still possible these days. Impressively, the more we see of it, the more Dragon Quest IX looks like Level-5's PS2 Dragon Quest VIII. Going full-3D like this is a bold move. Not as bold as making it an action RPG, which didn't end up happening, but still plenty bold for a series that is built on rigid tradition.
