We finally have confirmation of when Dragon Quest XI will be released in the west.
The release date is September 4 for PlayStation 4 and Steam.
So just a few months away! Great news, for me at least is that they will add voice acting. The Japanese original release didn’t have voices at all. It will feature some fixes and changes, you can see them a bit down on this post.
Here are some of the stuff they are adding and fixing to the game.
- English Voiceover
- Draconian Quest, a hard mode that offers additional challenges for more experienced players.
- Overhauled Menus & UI, with graphical enhancements and more intuitive navigation.
- Camera Mode, allowing players to take in views of the beautiful landscape, character renders and ferocious monsters in detail.
- A New Dash Function and many other system enhancements such as improved character and camera movement
They have confirmed that they will not release the 3DS version, but they will release the Nintendo Switch version in both Europe and America when it is released.
Much later. At least they’ve confirmed it’s coming, but we still don’t know if it will be an upgraded 3DS version or the same version released on PS4.
I’m just glad we finally have a date, even if it’s about five months away. At least now I have something to look forward to. Might even take a vacation day to enjoy it fully.
