Square Enix takes the wraps off of the mysterious Switch version of Dragon Quest 11 at long last.
Though Dragon Quest 11 was the very first game announced for the Nintendo Switch, back when it was still known as the Nintendo NX, we so far have seen absolutely nothing of it.
We had been promised that the game would be at Jump Festa this year, and true to their words, Square Enix brought the game there. And, at long last, they took the wraps off of the Switch version of Dragon Quest 11.
You can see the first trailer for the game for yourself below. It’s essentially the same as the PS4 version, though during the unveiling, Square Enix claimed that the whole game had been made from the ground up for the Switch. The big thing here for Japanese audiences is voice acting—thus far, no Dragon Quest game in Japan has had that (though of course, Dragon Quest 11’s English localization did have VA).
Beyond that, we don’t know a whole lot about the Switch version. We do get a release window, at least for Japan, and that’s 2019. Hopefully, a western release won’t be too far behind, especially since the actual localization work is mostly done. Square Enix has also promised more information on the game come January 1, 2019–which is next week.
Dragon Quest 11 is out now on PS4 and PC, and in Japan only, Nintendo 3DS.
