The additional content includes orchestrated music, a setting for 2D graphics, and new story quests.
Square Enix’s Dragon Quest 11 S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition finally got a Western release window for the Switch. Besides that it’s coming in the Fall, we also received new details on the additional content that can be expected. However, the question for current owners of the game on other platforms is whether they get to experience it as well.
Takashi Mochizuki, a tech reporter for The Wall Street Journal, posed this question to Square Enix and reported the result on Twitter. The publisher said it was “undecided” on whether the additional content would come to PS4 (and PC by extension, we assume). It isn’t a definite “no”, but it’s far from a definite “yes” as well.
It’s a shame, because there’s quite a lot of additional content to be had in the Switch version. There’s a setting for 2D visuals akin to the older games and you can switch between 2D and 3D on the fly. This 2D mode will be familiar to owners of the Nintendo 3DS version of Dragon Quest 11. Furthermore, Dragon Quest 11 S will have English and Japanese voice over support, a full orchestral arrangement for the field and battles, and the ability to fast forward battles.
Oh, and there are new quests for each party member to delve deeper into their individual stories as well. Dragon Quest 11 S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition is out on Switch this Fall in the West. Stay tuned for more information on whether the additional content comes to other platforms or not.
