Dragon Quest XI Coming Stateside for PS4 and PC; Switch Release Coming “Much Later”

Huzzah! Square Enix has announced that Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will be launching in the west for PlayStation 4 and PC on Sep. 4. The company has also announced that a Switch version is also currently in development, but will be coming at a much later time. The Japanese release of Dragon Quest XI also came to the 3DS, but unfortunately that won’t be happening for the western release.

The English version of the game will come with it, a slew of new features that weren’t available in the original Japanese release, such as: English voice acting, a hard mode, improved menus and interface, a camera mode to see detailed images of monsters and characters, and a new dash function.

Here’s a quick synopsis of the game straight from Square Enix:

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age tells a captivating tale of a hunted hero and is the long-awaited role-playing game from series creator Yuji Horii, character designer Akira Toriyama, and series composer Koichi Sugiyama. As the eleventh mainline entry in the critically acclaimed series, Dragon Quest XI is a completely standalone experience that features entirely new characters, a beautifully detailed world, finely tuned turn-based combat, and an immersive story that will appeal to longtime fans and franchise newcomers alike. After its release in Japan, Dragon Quest XI won multiple gaming awards and received critical praise, including PlayStation’s Platinum Prize and a perfect 40/40 score from Famitsu (Japanese publication).”
