Dragon Quest XI Gets a Western Release Date

I have never said this, but I really “hate” Japanese games. A lot of you may be scratching your heads since I go crazy for Yakuza titles. Let me clarify; I just get upset (as many of you do) when localization takes forever. Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of An Elusive Age launched in July of last year. In Japan, a Dragon Quest launch literally means attendance at companies goes down that week. You can imagine how many people worldwide want to play. That time has finally come. September 4, 2018, Dragon Quest XI makes its debut to the rest of the world!

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of An Elusive Age tells a captivating tale of a hunted hero and is the long-awaited role-playing game from series creator Yuji Horii, character designer Akira Toriyama, and series composer Koichi Sugiyama. As the eleventh mainline entry in the critically acclaimed series, DRAGON QUEST XI is a completely standalone experience that features entirely new characters, a beautifully detailed world, finely tuned turn-based combat, and an immersive story that will appeal to longtime fans and franchise newcomers alike.  After its release in Japan, Dragon Quest XI  won multiple gaming awards and received critical praise, including PlayStation’s Platinum Prize and a perfect 40/40 score from Famitsu (Japanese publication).

In addition to delivering over 100 hours of content, the Western release of Dragon Quest XI will also feature several upgrades and enhancements that were not included in the Japanese release, including:

  • 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

Beginning today, adventurers who pre-order from the PlayStation®Store can treat themselves to the exclusive “The Legend Reborn” Theme as an instant reward, along with in-game DLC items when the game launches – check out the following link for more details.

Full details on a SQUARE ENIX Store exclusive edition for the PlayStation 4 system will be revealed soon. For more information, please visit the game’s official social channels and website.
