Square Enix "undecided" on whether vanilla Dragon Quest XI will receive Definitive Edition content

Yesterday, Square Enix announced a fall release window and new features for Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition for Switch, including new stories where each character becomes the protagonist.

Asked by The Wall Street Journal’s Takashi Mochizuki if Square Enix plans to add these features to the vanilla version of Dragon Quest XI for PlayStation 4 and PC via an update or downloadable content, the company said that it is “undecided.”

Would be pretty shitty to make such a big commotion about DQXI needing to sell big on PS4 & PC in the West to make it a bigger global franchise and not release this new content on those same platforms in some form of DLC.

That because Dragon Quest XI S is being handled. marketed and published by Nintendo of America and Europe.
Nintendo handles everything Dragon Quest on their system in the west. Square Enix US and EU has no involvement.
It will only happen if Square Enix Japan add em which I doubt they would soon after Switch version release

He is correct; It shows right on the Nintendo page that it's being published by Nintendo:

Not really, think about what they did to Japan release, it did not get any of the quality improvement that the American and European users got on ps4 and pc, so it only make sense they do it again or it will be shitty that they only treated japan wrong

Well, that seems like a good way to immediately sour their relationship with their new Dragon Quest fans in the West...

Not really because this game is coming west same day as Japan I think and it’s fully featured so every region gets the definitive edition people are just upset it’s the switch that get everything

It would be nice to have Japanese language instead of silence in the game

The Switch version will have both English and Japanese voice acting.

Yes, I bought the playstation 4 version Japanese with no voice, I don't want to buy full price again for voices. That's why I said it would be nice.

Square Enix, and sense doesn't go together in alot of cases

Wish they'd do.something about the music. The world map theme is absolutely obnoxious.

That would be a middle finger to those who bought it last year.

RizBiz36d ago

If it was offered as DLC? Why would that be bad?

SE is saying they're undecided if they will bring it to other platforms at all.
