Level-5 working for a 2008 release of Dragon Quest IX

Square Enix and Level-5 have both previously been reticent about Dragon Quest IX, showing little and saying even less. In fact, the last we heard anything about a possible release period was back in August when it was delayed until 2008, except for Yoichi Wada's assurance of the game's progress. A delay like that won't happen again, according to Level-5 president Akihiro Hino. Hino told Famitsu that he set a goal for 2008 of finishing not only Dragon Quest IX, but the soccer RPG Inazuma Eleven, the third Professor Layton game, and White Knight Chronicles on the Playstation 3.

Hino also mentioned that Level-5 would announce a new RPG soon, also for release this year. It's the 10th anniversary of Level-5, and they're celebrating it with work.

Now we need more traditional turned based RPGs instead of deluge of SRPGs on DS

I couldn't agree more. I am tired of all these SRPG's. Enough already. At this point when it comes to DQIX I'll be happy hear about how the game is actually going to work. Nobody really knows at this point. Its kinda frustrating.
