Dragon Quest XI Announced for PS4, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo NX!

Dragon Quest XI has been announced for PS4, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo NX. The two versions of graphics that we have already seen look absolutely fantastic!

Not only is this great news, but it seems to suggest that the NX is a home console?

Sugiyama is still doing the music and it sounds like this Dragon Quest game will be the start of a new era.

The PS 4 uses Unreal engine 4 and is supposed to push the PS 4 to the limits of its hardware capabilities. Sounds legit.

Here's a source:

This one seems pretty darn likely to get localized, so I'm so hyped.~~~

Well, I guess I have no choice but to buy a PS4 now.

I'm loving the oddball 3D/2D thing they're doing for the 3DS so I guess I'll buy that too! Sheesh!

I have to say I'm impressed with the idea of using a different interface for the 3DS version. Also using two screens.
Very good idea.

Though I don't play Dragon Quest myself.
But still, good ideas are good ideas.

I haven't played a Dragon Quest game in a while, but I'll be looking forward to this.

Wow this might be what I'd been hoping for since being DQ8.

Looking forward to more news about this. Certainly will grab the PS4 version if the game turns out well.

10 DQ games in total. Togashi will never emerge from his mancave.

On a more related note, YEAAAAAAAA. This is it; a decade later and we're finally seeing DQ in HD glory. (No, X doesn't count)

And that 3DS version is so sick, I might have to double down on this. (Also looks way ahead in development compared to the ps4 version, we might be seeing a ni no kuni situation where it comes out ahead of the console game)

^Not surprising, but no "concrete plan" to localize DQXI at the moment.

Typical non-answer. Don't know why people are so worried. The game will be localized.

Yeah... I mean, the PS 4 and 3DS versions are likely to be localized. The 3DS version would be localized by Nintendo anyway even if Enix didn't move a single finger. The sales that they reap would totally make up for the translation costs. These consoles have a large install base, and a main Dragon Quest like this would be more successful than Dragon Quest IX was in the US. Not only that, but this isn't an MMO, so they have no reason not to translate it. Especially considering what SE announced at E3 and the recent success of BD in the west. It's just a matter of time. They always say that they don't have any concrete plans to localize until they have all of the details. This is because the Dragon quest team cares first and foremost about reliability towards fans... so that they make absolutely sure that they don't tell a lie by saying yes before they have all of the details...

Of course. I also think both will be localized. It would be good if DQHeroes sells well here, too so the chances are higher. Plus, it is on PS4 & 3DS.

In other news, here's a Jump scan:

Quote:
The latest issue of Weekly Jump features coverage of the newly announced Dragon Quest XI, showcasing a battle scene in the PS4 version for the first time.

One of the main features showcased from the 3DS version is its joint 3D and 2D display. On the top screen, you see the world in 3D, while on the bottom, you see it in 2D. According to Jump, this simultaneous operation of the two styles is only for the beginning of the game. From a certain point, you’ll select whether you want to play in 3D or 2D. However, you can switch between the two at any time.

The softer-looking main character is intriguing. I hope this one has characters with actual personalities this time.
But I'm not buying this until Squeenix localizes DQ7 3DS!

Lol, dream on. They're not localizing that game for quite a while, if they will. I know they said they're holding off on it because they want to come out with a perfect translation which IS like them, but still it'll probably take a LONG time.

In fact, I'll probably hold off on this until I buy DQ VIII 3ds when it comes out. And yes, the Japanese version is the one I'll be getting. I mean... it'll have the full orchestral soundtrack, full voice acting, better animation than the PS2 version, will be portable, will have extra scenarios and mechanics, lets you play as Morrie(!) and Red(!) and has overworld mechanics like in DQ IX and the DQ Joker spin-offs where you could see enemies on the overworld. That game was probably my favorite game ever, so I can't wait for the remake even if it's in Japanese.

Keep in mind that the 3DS is regio-locked, so hopefully you (also) have a japanese 3DS available to enjoy the game.

There's an easy software hack you can use to play Japanese/other region games on a NA/EU 3DS. It takes all of 5 seconds plus a Wifi connection to activate and doesn't permanently modify your 3DS in any way (as far as I know).

Well I do have a Japanese new 3ds (it was the first time I bought two of the same console one from Japan and one from NA in one generation). I bought it specifically because DQ games are taking forever to come out. It also has the benefit of letting you play plenty of FTP games, and a much larger selection of games in the online store and to play in general. Though it's perfect for playing remakes since those I already mostly know the entire storyline for...
