People, so far, really like Dragon Quest Xl. Dragon Quest fans love it because it’s a Dragon Quest game, and people who have so far never experienced that franchise seem to enjoy how relaxed and mellow the experience is, compared to a lot of open-world RPGs that have been coming out as of late. There have been lots of reasons to envy the PS4 for having exclusive rights to this game, but now Switch fans need feel the envy no longer: as Dragon Quest XI S: Echos of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition (that’s a mouthful) will be coming out on the Switch very, very soon.
Check out the trailer:
Yeah, for some reason this is the only video I could find.
Anyway, other than general hype at the game’s launch, there’s not a whole lot “new” to this. It’s cool that we’re getting the definitive edition, which includes music from a live Orchestra and the option to switch to 16-bit graphics, and as a die-hard Switch fan I’m glad to see the game coming out on a console I actually like playing, but… otherwise, there’s not really a lot to uncover or analyze here.
It should be out sometime this fall.
