I didn't expect them to suddenly announce a release date, but a screenshot or 2 would have been nice.

Still, we all knew this game would be a year behind the PS4/PC release regardless.

I'm not really worried about it. It comes when it comes... when it's ready.

I'm so bogged down with Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, FFXV Pocket HD, Xenoblade 2 Torna, and Valkyria Chronicles 4 on Tuesday, and Dragonball Fighter Z, Valkyria Chronicles 1, The World Ends With You, Mega Man 11, StarfoxLink, Diablo 3, World of Final Fantasy, Pokemon, Smash Bros, Katamari Damacy, Marble It Up and goodness knows how many I'm forgetting...

There wouldn't be even a sliver of time for it in the near future anyways. And judging by the fact 2019 is already looking jam packed, starting off with a bang with New Super Bros U Deluxe, No More Heroes, Tales of Vesperia, Onimushu Warlords and Kingdom Hearts 3 (although I'ma hold off on that one, got a feeling KH series is the next to come rocketing onto Switch).

There really is just too many games out now and coming soon.

I figure it'll be packed whenever it does release as well, seems to just get more and more congested as we get further into the gen. But point being, I can wait. It's not like there's not a dozen other excellent games vying for attention at any given moment.

When it does release though, it's gonna be incredible. Hope someone fan translates the 3DS version also so at least those with CFW can have that bangin 2D sprite 3D dual 3DS version

The addition of the S to the subtitle pretty much confirms the Switch version of DQXI had to be rebuilt from the ground up rather than being a straight port of the PS4 version. Square-Enix and Nintendo want to hit 720p/30fps in handheld mode and clearly...that target is going to take some additional development time. So, with that in mind, I look forward to playing DQXI in 2020 on Switch.

Welp whenever it shows up I shall buy it. I am stuck anyway since I don’t want the dub.

I don't think it'll take that long. Games like Diablo 3 were ported in 9 months, and that's from day one. DQXI has a head start.

Now, they might be putting a little more effort in (although Diablo 3 is quality, 960p docked/720p handheld 60fps), and it might be a tougher port requiring some extra time, but I still think this game will be out by the end of next year. Even if we count 12-14 months from release, plus the head start since they were already working on the game before hand, I just don't see how this game doesn't release next year.

By E3 the game should probably be ready to show footage. By Sept or Oct it should be revealed in a Direct with the release date, which will likely be a big November game. Or maybe December. They like to tuck JRPGs into the December slot.

I'd be fine with it just being a port of the 3DS version... if it was released at the same time as the others. Now that we know that it won't be coming for a while, I'll be pretty upset if they make us wait so long for a significantly scaled down version of the game.

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3

Eh, it'll come when it comes. I'm in no hurry for it. Too many other games to play and catch up on.

No, it does not. The added S "clearly" only means that the Japanese release will have dubbed voices, which they also said that's what it stands for. The Japanese PS4 release did not have speech, only text. Speech was only added to the Western release and obviously the hardcore Dragon Quest fans mostly live in Japan so they were bummed out.

Gameplay matters.

Ryu_Niiyama

@Switchcraft I am looking forward to the new VO track but for now no voices works for me.

Just booted up the 3ds version. I should not be this giddy.

Was there an actual confirmation on a NA release, or just a JP one?

@Introspect

They did say it'd be a western release at some point.

No reason not to given that they already have the translation from the PS4 version.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

@MumboJumbo i can thnk of at least one better reason than ps4. I can keep playing on the toilet with the switch if im really busting...... cant do that on ya ps4

@JaxonH "I don't think it'll take that long. Games like Diablo 3 were ported in 9 months, and that's from day one. DQXI has a head start."

Yeah but Diablo III isn't made by Square-Enix with a reputation of a decade between releases

@Switchcraft Eew, I didn't know they didn't have VO in the Japanese version. What a weird choice. I presume along with sticking with 8-bit sounds, they thought people there would enjoy the fully traditional experience with silent characters and reading the voices in their head. But it's a weird choice to do VOs for the secondary market and not the primary.

@NEStalgia I don't know - it seems a smart business decision to me, if the Switch release was always going to lag behind so much. Having a Japanese voice track is pretty much the only selling point for the Switch version in Japan, where pretty much everyone who loves Dragon Quest XI seemed to a buy a copy within the first few weeks (those sales figures are mighty impressive). There can't be many fans who didn't pick up either the PS4 or 3DS version.

In the West, there's no such selling point - but Squenix stiffed us on the 3DS version, so Switch will have the only portable version. Yay...

True, and maybe more to the point, I wonder how well it sold on PS4 compared to 3DS there? They may have released it expecting the 3DS was the main release anyway.

@NEStalgia 3ds sold better but that dual pack they sold helped both sides I think. I couldn't find current numbers quickly but "By the end of 2017, the game had sold 3.12 million total copies in Japan, 1.76 for the 3DS and 1.35 for the PlayStation 4". That doesnt include downloads. I still think the seiyuu version will have enough of a draw.

A reminder that Square Enix presents Jump Festa 19 starts in two and a half hours.

Dragon Quest XI Switch is scheduled for a 50 minute stage presentation and panel.

Wait, what? O.o Spits out proverbial coffee

Thanks for this, I hadn't heard anything about the Switch version for some time now.

Confirmed to release in Japan in 2019! So happy about this. Hopefully it doesn't take long for it to release in the rest of the world as well. Graphics are comparing very well too, even though the trailer is mostly cinematic. Finger's crossed for more gameplay in a Nintendo direct!

Mario Galaxy is ten years old, and now I feel old.

Magician

The TL;DR version of the presentation is that the Switch version will be fully voice acted, where as the PS4 version is text-only. There's no telling if the PS4 version will get a patch to add the voice acting or not. Until that's confirmed, it's fair to assume the Switch version will be the superior version of DQ XI content wise. Fidelity wise, the Switch version is tuned down.

But because the Switch version will be fully voice acted I expect the western release to slip into 2020.

I may import this physically to match my 3ds version but I am leaning towards digital so I can get it day one.
