During a livestreamed presentation from Tokyo, following the announcement of Dragon Quest XI for PS4 and 3DS, Square Enix showcased the first gameplay footage of the 3DS version of the game.
I am honestly surprised by how good looking the game is on 3DS. And the classic visuals are a great addition. This makes me want to go out and buy a 3ds.
The 3DS is a good system. Just make sure you get one of the "new" models though.
Sorry if this sounds stupid...just woke up to all this but I'm guessing the 3DS version will be different to the PS4 in terms of story or will they be the same plot but told in a different way Obviously you won't be able to do things on the 3DS that might be on the PS4.
They will be identical in terms of story and places.
PS4 is running on Unreal 4 Engine though and there are 2 dev teams working with eachother. So it's a big combined effort to make like 3-4 versions of this one game all at the same time to release on PS4/3DS & eventually NX. There will be advantages or more so Pros to each version. With 3DS you get the portability of it, + you get the SNES graphics version on the bottom screen if you choose. I'm sure the PS4 version will have some nice bonuses. The Main being the ability to wander around those huge towns and have the impact of it probably draw you into the games world more so than the 3DS version. I'm buying all the versions though.
This is awesome. Its like they're making the game and its remake at the same time!
that might be the best use of the bottom screen i have ever seen for a game in the entire DS family line.
It's great each version has two distinct styles to make them feel like separate experiences
Even though i have a 3ds im more excited for the PS4 version.I just want a release date.
The release date is to coincide with the 30th Anniversary of 'DQ' and that's between May 27 2016 to May 26 2017.. So, 3DS version Q1 2016? and PS4 either Q4 2016 or Q1 2017, that's how I see it.
After my first professional overview and comparison of the two different version I umm...think that the Playstation 4 version looks better visually than the Nintendo 3DS version. Have I ever mentioned I am a professional gamer?
This is the version that is going to sell millions. (you can downvote but facts are facts) Releasing on the 3DS in Japan is printing money. 3DS is the only system that has games that are selling 2-3 million easy.
Hopefully it will help shift PS4 sales in Japan too.
PS4 version will also sell at least 2 million.
HAHAHAHAHAHA no PS4 game in Japan has even hit a million in sales yet and you think this will double that? later than the 3DS version?
Who cares if the 3ds version is the one that will sell better......I can't play sales. The ps4 version is being made using unreal engine 4 and by level 5 on a much much more powerful console.....its going to the better version. Also having the final fantasy 7 remake, nier 2, persona 5, dragon quest heroes, worlds of FF and a bunch of other jrpgs.....ps4 seems like the definitive jrpg console.......you can have your sales.
1) It is not being made by level 5. 2_ Unreal engine looks sort of like claymation........... Until the NX comes out, yes, PS4 does have some good jrpgs, not as good as 3DS but it has some
@RPGGrinder don't make me laugh please NX is only just releasing possibly in 2016 how can it outdo all the JRPGs that PS4 has, stop being a fanboy...
Ummmm grinder it is being made by level 5..... Try doing a little research dude, they are making the ps4 version in joint with squeenix. After how great ni no kuni was on the ps3 and how great the graphics looked on the ps4 this game will be stellar. You hate it simply because its on ps4......nothing more nothing less.
That is not what the press release says. Maybe you want to do some homework. I am speaking facts. The 3DS version is going to sell the majority of units. NX/PS4 will fight out the console share but it is going to be like 75% 3ds Square made the right move by making this game 2/3 on Nintendo platforms and avoiding Vita. Now the game actually has a chance to be a monster seller
"Sigh" I wish I could post links to sources but my phone acts up to much.......where's darkocelot when you need him. If you want to think I'm just pulling this out of thin air than that's okay but level 5 made it known a while ago that they were currently developing a jrpg for ps4 and this turns out to be it, unless they have a second team working on something separate. Also why do you care about the 3ds versions sales so much......like I said above I can't play sales, and the more it sells will not increase the games quality. You sound like an OG 360 fanboy mouthing off NPD numbers. I'll play the version being made by level 5 on UE4 with the really strong hardware......the 3ds version will be great I'm sure, I just don't care about how much it sells, only insecure fanboys care about that. .....its kinda sad that you keep bringing that up. Also your little statement about not including the vita was just pitiful, you implying that the vita would have kept it from being a monstar seller.....I'm trying my damnedest not to insult your intellect, I mean its embarrassing to watch you take a dig at Sony every chance you get even when no one is argue with you about Sony....... ........how old are you 14?? Give your parents back their laptop.
I'll be playing the 3DS version more then. This look more interesting than the PS4 version.
what would nintendo fanboy say.
Uh maybe because it more interesting to me. And I have a PS4. More like you are mad at someone saying they want a version you don't like.
And I'm sure a Playstation "fanboy" would say the same thing about the PS4 version. Get lost.
Wouldn't the PS4 version be the technically superior version? The only advantage the 3DS version will have is portability and the 3D effect. Edit: Isnt coming out for NX as well? I'm wondering why you didn't mention that since its a Nintendo console.
uh because the NX has no information. Until there 5 games I want to play on it. I won't mention it much.
I haven't seen the ps4 version......does this one really look more appealing, seems like a bit of a reach to me. Edit: never mind just saw the ps4 version........sorry I gotta disagree vehemently, unless you love the art direction or portability of the 3ds then I don't see why you would choose it over the ps4.......but then again that's just me. Our tastes are just different. I wonder what other differences the 2 will have from each other.
Finally someone actually understand I have a different taste instead. It is indeed the art direction and portability. My older brother will get on PS4. It doesn't mean I won't play it. It just that I will play the 3DS version more because it more appealing. From what they showed for the PS4 version left me with nothing but a new DQ game in HD with nothing ground breaking but the amazing new visuals.
Well I see what you mean about the 3ds version, the second screen function looks to be put to great use. Its simply because level 5 is helping with the development of the ps4 version on UE4 is why I'm excited. I'm guessing there may be differences in size or maybe combat mechanics between the two.....if there are big differences I may have to pick up both versions.
Maybe we'll get this 2-3 years from now.
The 3DS version actually looks like it could launch next year
"HAHAHAHAHAHA no PS4 game in Japan has even hit a million in sales yet and you think this will double that? later than the 3DS version?" what big games have been released for PS4 so far? Dragon Quest Heroes spin off is biggest and it probably reached 500k. FF XV, DQ XI, FF VII Remake and KH III will all sell over 1 million on PS4. and where it says that 3DS version will release first?
PS4 does not have the install base to do massive software numbers. Did you look at the games? Or are you just trolling people on N4G? The 3DS version looks pretty ready
"Did you look at the games? Or are you just trolling people on N4G? The 3DS version looks pretty ready" Don't know it's worth mentioning but in Japan 3DS and PS4 versions will be released simultaneously. https://twitter.com/Ryutaro... HAHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
Until the pS4 version is delayed. The 3DS version is the money maker
Did they delay the PS4 version? :I Pretty funny how your assuming that they will delay the PS4 version without any evidence to back it up.
Why is the ps4 version getting delayed grinder??? Is it simply because its on ps4 that a delay is happening. I don't get it, if your trying to insult Sony by saying the ps4 has a lot of delays then your actually insulting sqeenix and level 5 far more as they are the ones with full control over the game.......you know, the guys developing your precious 3ds money maker.
All i gotta say that the bottom 2D screen was an amazing feature , i'm impressed
2d and 3d are both visible simultaneously? Seems like a waste of screen real-estate.
I'm glad but at the same time confused as well, i'll be busy looking at the both screens, which should i watch? both have different beautiful presentations. I already have 3DS, but i'll buy PS4 as a main system for playing DQXI just to avoid confusion while playing. But....definitely maybe i'll buy the 3DS version too...
If 3D is added, it will give the game nice depth.
so much wantz!
