According to Gematsu, expansion The Sleeping Hero and the Guided Allies Offline, which has a story as long as the original's, follows in the spring.

Dragon Quest 10 launched first on Nintendo Wii in 2012, and was then ported to Wii U, PC, PS4, Switch, 3DS and mobile with cross-platform play. Dragon Quest 10 has yet to be released outside of Japan on any of its platforms, and there's no word yet on whether this offline version will make it to these shores.
