BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Square Enix has just released Dragon Quest XI in Japan, but this is not the only good thing happening. The company has just announced the game would be released in the West, coming under a new name: Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age.
Dragon Quest XI comes in the West as well
When Dragon Quest XI was first announced, Square Enix avoided a confirmation for a western release of the title. Now, the creator has finally decided to end the waiting and reveal the company is working not only on an English version of the game, but four other versions in other languages are currently in the making. However, it might take some time until everything is ready, as there’s quite a lot to translate.
Apart from revealing the name change, Square Enix also offered a time frame when Dragon Quest XI should come in the west. However, the details are quite vague, as it only mentioned the game should be released some time in 2018.
The Japanese version has been released for both PS4 and Nintendo 3DS
Apart from this, no other information has been made public. The video game company said more details should come this fall. We might assume that, if both the PS4 and Nintendo 3DS are produced, they will be released both at the same time. However, keep in mind that all of these are suppositions.
For the Japanese release, Square Enix will bring both the PS4 and the 3DS versions. The company also announced a possible Switch version, but this one is not ready yet. Fans will have to wait until Enix offers an official date.
Dragon Quest is one of the most popular RPG series in gaming. The 11th PS4 version bring back the classic battles and exploration quests. However, the 3DS version will be a little different, given the graphics. Even so, both games will be based on the classic combat system you have already gotten used to.
