First off, the theme of the upcoming ARPG is called "The Hero Who is Hunted" which is basically a combination of the game's original concept which was to go back to its roots and a hero's story. This theme is also said to be a new starting point for the series which means even those who have not played any of the Dragon Quest installment will still be able to enjoy this version.
A brief description was also provided thru an article by Famitsu which states that upon reaching the age of 16, the Hero (player) will find out that he is a reincarnation of someone called "Brave" who was also called as "The Devils Child."
