Square-Enix releases official statement on considering Dragon Quest X/XI for NX

Coming from Square Enix...

“Our press release contained the official statement that had been originally planned, and there is no reason to believe any changes were made mid-way to the content of the official announcement. The comment made during the event was not based on the official statement, so please allow us to correct our statement at this moment. We regret any confusion this may have caused.”

Square-Enix is considering both releases, but not officially confirming them. Sounds like they're trying to say the wording during the press conference was incorrect. I still think there's more going on here than Square-Enix wants us to believe, but take their statement at face value for now.

Instead of bombarding you with yet another breakdown of info, some of which contradicts what we've already reported, I figured I'd just provide you with the link. Read on at your own risk!
