@MegaTen Which 3DS version? It already comes with two versions.

It won't happen though. I think the difference between the two versions is too big, and getting them to sync up and switch between versions in an instant seems very unlikely. Unless the PS4 and 3DS versions are more similar than I think they are. Regardless of that, I don't think Square Enix will go that far with the Switch version. It'll be either the 3DS or the PS4 version.

@Bass_X0 The Switch port is garbage. Both games run painfully slowly and there's absolutely no excuse for it beyond poor optimization and laziness. The fact it's most not likely not being released in the West is no loss whatsoever.

What if...

Dragon Quest XI plays like the PS4 when docked, and like the 3DS version in handheld mode?

This is a stupid, absurd thing that won't happen but it totally, unironically should. I will declare it GOTY by default if the Switch version actually does this.

It's running 30fps at 900p on the PS4, so ''technical adjustments'' are to be expected...

Especially if they want to aim for 720p in handheld mode.

I'd rather them take their time and not rush the final product. At least that still reads like we're getting it.

The 3DS version of DQXI doesn't look good to me. If the Switch can't handle even a downgraded version of the PS4 version on the tablet, then I will probably just get the PS4 version once it dips low enough in price.

Are there any example of games that run below 720p in handheld mode? If so, how do they look?

Are they coming to North American, i really hope so. If so i would prob never touch the ps4 again.

I wouldn't count on them. You can hope. I've been hoping for Dragon Quest X since the Wii version came out. It seriously would have sold systems. But Nintendo is not dedicated to online gaming and still is not dedicated to its online gaming. They can say what they want but the online service is still no better than it was 10 years ago. Dragon Quest XI might have a chance if Nintendo publishes it. For some reason Square will not publish any Dragon Quest ports. Nintendo has to do it or it won't be done. They say that Dragon Quest isn't popular in the US which is garbage. Dragon Quest IX sold very well on DS. If the others didn't sell well its due to one reason. They are finally ported 10 years after the original releases and interest has faded. If they would port them when they get releases I'm sure it would be a different story.

Good bye to the Switch. I sold my Switch and didn't price gouge anyone. That's probably it for home consoles me at 52. I love 3DS and consider it to be my console. The Switch went to a nice family with kids I'm sure who will love it for years to come.

Dragon Quest VIII and IX are marketed well and are AFAIK the most successful DQ games outside of Japan. Then SE doesn't market literally any DQ games on their own over here. I'm not sure how many people bought the 3DS versions of VII and VIII over here but if it wasn't for this site and Nintendo Directs, I would not remember that they even existed.

Dragon Quest games seem to be translated, tested, online-served, and published by Nintendo in Europe. I guess if Nintendo isn't helping with localization SQUARE ENIX does nothing with it internationally.

The only thing that's kept me from picking up VIII is purely the sheer length of it. I plan to at some point, but I need to cut out a couple of longer RPGs from my backlog first.

I haven't played VIII much, and I wouldn't doubt that on a whole it is lengthy, but compared to VII, it is a lot faster. VII is pretty bad in that it has a terribly slow opening and a slower pacing still. I'm 20+ hours in and only just unlocked vocations a couple days ago. You would think something like that would be available a lot sooner.

I played through VIII a couple of years ago (on my phone) and loved it to pieces. It is long (LONG!) but I enjoyed every hour. Still the only DQ I've played, but I've got DQV and VI in a folder on my phone too.

Don't think we'll ever see DQX on Switch in the West. Is it still on for Japan? DQXI will, I think, definitely come eventually.

Square Enix already announced that DQ XI is coming to the west, just not which platforms. I thought people already knew this.

Long RPGs suck. Too much grind not enough game. And not enough time to play them. I'd love to play Dragon Quest but don't want to fork over my money + a lot of my time to play it. Make RPGs shorter! >:0 20 hrs would be perfect

@Reginald Yes, it has been confirmed - but not which platforms. I think it's safe to assume DQXI will come west on all three systems, but nobody has definitively said that the PS4, 3DS and Switch versions will come.

What about DQX, though? I'm pretty sure that was listed among the promised titles when the Switch launched.

@SMEXIZELDAMAN: 20-30 hours is my sweet spot. I don't mind if they're a little longer on occasion, but I'm less likely to pick up longer RPGs overall. That said, I still need to tackle XCX, which will probably happen this winter....

I did pick up DQV this past spring from a sale Square Enix's online store was running. Haven't gotten around to playing it yet.

@SMEXIZELDAMAN Long RPGS suck? Thats insane, i love nothing more far as games than a long RPG with God mode gear i can farm for. I really want Dragon Quest over here other than just on 1)3DS 2)generic DQ games such as builders and heros. No one wants those, we want the real deal, cmon Japan.

Will X be playable outside of Japan or do that game still require a Japanese IP adress or internet or something? Have heard earlier versions would still be unplayable outside of Japan because of something like that even if you have the system to play it.

Speak for yourself, please. Plenty of people are looking forward to Builders 2. And there's nothing wrong with having main series DQ games on 3DS.

I do think it's likely that we will be seeing the Switch version in the west. That might be why they haven't announced any platforms yet.
