Dragon Quest XI Nintendo Switch
For those of you who do not know, Dragon Quest XI Nintendo Switch has been announced. Not only is this one of the first console releases from Dragon Quest in quite some time, but Dragon Quest XI will be released right around the time frame of the games 30 year anniversary. Here is what we know so far about Dragon Quest XI:
Dragon Quest XI is supposed to be a breath of fresh air to the Dragon Quest franchise. While the last few releases from Dragon Quest have not been so great, Dragon Quest XI is slated to be a single player JRPG which will closely resemble Dragon Quest VIII which is one of the series best releases. Not only is Dragon Quest XI going to be available on the Nintendo Switch but it is also set to release on the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo 3DS. Official footage of the PlayStation 4 version of the game was released and can be watched below.
While the footage of Dragon Quest XI does not showcase much gameplay, it does show just how amazing the graphics are. In regards to details of the Nintendo Switch version of Dragon Quest XI, there has been no mention of what we can expect. On December 29, 2016, Square Enix is set to release more footage and details on this title. The stream is expected to begin at 10pm JST. We can hope to see footage directly from the Nintendo Switch version of Dragon Quest XI, but since this falls before the Nintendo Switch direct on January 12, 2017 this may be unlikely.
While we may not have any further information on the Nintendo Switch release, we can expect Dragon Quest XI to be available very close to launch. May 27, 2017 is Dragon Quest’s 30th anniversary, and Square Enix has stated they would like to have Dragon Quest XI released before this date. With the Nintendo Switch release being just two months before the 30th anniversary, we should expect to get our hands on Dragon Quest XI early on in the Nintendo Switch’s launch window.
