During the Tokyo Game Show today, Square Enix finally provided an update on Dragon Quest XI for Switch.
With how slow localization is for this series, western gamers shouldn’t expect this game until 2020 at the earliest
It´s already translated.
Or get it now for PS4.
Meh, it's kind of tough to predict because the voice work and translation work for the West was already done. Without knowing how close it is to Japanese or if there's any other significant changes to the game, we really have no clue when it could be coming out.
Still waiting on Dragon Quest Rivals to be released in the west.
@ Anna Since when has that ever meant anything? Dragon Quest VIII was already localized, but western markets still had to wait more than a year for the 3DS port after Japan received it. Why would you think it’d be any different now with Dragon Quest XI? You still haven’t even seen the Switch versions of Dragon Quest Heroes 1+2 get localized yet despite the PS4 versions already existing in the western markets. So like I said, except western markets to receive DQXI a year or more after it releases in Japan.
Nice news but I would prefer to play that game soon. It would be better if we had a release date and not an "S".
1.) The version isn’t anywhere close to being released. They haven’t even shown anything from announcing it 3 years ago. 2.) If you want to play it so soon just get the PC or PS4 versions already available. 3.) You’re still going to wait a year after it releases in Japan because of how slow it continues to be to localize a game in this series.
Actually, they did show gameplay of it running on the Switch last year. I can try to find the link if you want. The game is already translated, so their wouldn't be much localization required. Just for some of the extra content.
@Theknightofknights Pretty sure that was Dragon Quest X.
Dragon Quest VIII was already localized on PS2. That didn’t stop the 3DS port from taking more than a year to release in western markets after it released in Japan. What you think now would be different when that’s never been the case for this series? Western markets are still waiting on the Switch versions of Dragon Quest Heroes 1+2. They never revealed the Switch version’s gameplay, so it’s still far away from release
The " S" is for "Stiffneck" if you plan on playing this on handheld mode.
Dragon Quest 11 Small. Great game on PS , I will grab it on Switch just to have it
you know that the S is for shit right? i'm joking, it is for small, it's probably the 3DS version but a little better graphically
It's been confirmed many times it's the PS4 version. They had to move the whole game to a newer version of UE4 to work on Switch. That takes time.
it's the pixelated ps4 version you mean right?
i'm not trolling, i'm serious. the switch version will be objectively inferior to the already existing ps4 and PC versions
Portable dummy plus Switch version will have added features. Won't be the best looking but still have its own advantages.
S for "smal" size.
I have the 4k version for PS4 waiting to be played on my Pro. This will be, if grateful, in 1080p... Japanese dub though~ (Which will certainly be available as a DLC later on for PS4 and PC)
You can have the best looking version but they already said the switch version will have some special intent a month ago People like us rather have more content, playing on the go and when needed we play on the tv now if there wasn't a switch version then i would of got it for ps4
After 3 years people like us most likely will be playing other games such as FFVIIR or some new DQ on PS5 :)
Yeah because those few extra costumes make a world of difference lol
Poor fool still thinks FF7R is releasing
It won’t be 1080p on switch. Standard PS4 version is 900p. It’ll likely be 720p or just below that on switch
Prettier, but are these games ever really about the visuals? This isn’t final fantasy we’re talking about. 4K Dragon Quest sounds unnecessary.
My game of the year, probably my game of the generation so far
dragon quest XI super - everyone's hair turns blue in their pepped up state.
Does it have the retro mode for sprite graphics?
DQ XI - "S"uper, Switch,Special... I think it's Special
