Dragon Quest Walk is a classic RPG at the core, but it's o course based on augmented reality.

Square Enix revealed a new Dragon Quest smartphone game for iOS and Android titled Dragon Quest Walk on Monday. So far it seems a lot less social than Go, which bodes well for a lack of predatory microtransactions, but maybe not so much for its longevity.

If you haven't already, make sure to watch the trailer above to see what Dragon Quest Walk is all about. Apparently the game's story develops as you walk, and quests will occur at landmarks on the map. Become the protagonist and walk around the real world, which was become the world of Dragon Quest, to move forward on your adventure in an RPG like no Dragon Quest before it. Are you more excited to see what Dragon Quest XII will eventually bring? It's possible we could hear about worldwide plans during Square Enix's E3 press conference next Monday. A closed beta test will begin on June 11 for a limited number of users.

Dragon Quest XI was a brand new mainline game that was released on the consoles and PC for the first time in the series. During the very same conference, Dragon Quest series executive producer, Yu Miyake, also spoke of an upcoming Dragon Quest XII.

Industry analyst Dr. Serkan Toto says Dragon Quest Walk appears to be a "shameless clone" of Niantic's Pokemon Go.
