However, it does appear that Dragon Quest's famous turn-based combat is present here.
The announcement trailer for Dragon Quest Walk shows all manner of iconic Dragon Quest monsters taking to the streets of Tokyo and other parts of Japan as the public looks on in shock. A handful of Dragon Quest games have been made available internationally in the past, but the nature of Square Enix's upcoming exploration game could be challenging to localize. As for progression, the story will develop as you venture out into the world, looking for adventure, leveling up, and completing quests every day.

According to Gematsu, series executive producer Yuu Miyake said during the briefing that Dragon Quest Walk may have some connection to the unannounced Dragon Quest XII in some capacity.
Quests will be completed if you visit new locations. Just like Pokémon GO, this game uses your location to bring elements from the Dragon Quest universe to your local area. There was also nothing mentioned about a worldwide release so we'll just have to wait until Square Enix updates on that. You can see him in the image at the bottom of the post. They did the same with Dragon Quest XI in June 2014 and the game was released in Japan on July 2017. We imagine this will be a PS5 release, as the gap between releases in the franchise has generally lasted around three to four years.
