I think whichever choice you pick makes very little difference in the grand scheme of things, so don't worry too much.

I do absolutely recommend you to watch the other route for that quest though! if you feel like your day was lacking just that little dash of depression.

What do you guys think... Dragon Quest XI or Mana Collection?

So, having finished FE: Three Houses (and spending 10+ hours on a second playthrough), I think I'm ready to go back to DQXI!

I quit right after hitting Arboria. So, I played for a number of hours yesterday and witnessed the fall of Yggdrasil. Not sure that I expected the game to pull a FF6, but I'm not hugely surprised, either.

These weird subplots with each character afterward weren't in the original PS4 release, right? I'm not sure how I feel about them. After witnessing something devastating like that, I want to get my party back together, not follow Sylvando on some bizarre pilgrimage to bring happiness back to the world. What tonal whiplash!

Considering Veronica and Serena talked not long before about 'wanting their leaves to fall at the same time,' I feel like this game is about to kill one of them off, and I'm not happy about it. This dread I'm feeling certainly isn't helping, and I don't care about the misadventures of surviving party members in the meantime.

It's a charming, funny game, but DQVIII had a VERY nasty edge to it at times, and I feel like that's about to happen with XI as well.

Regardless, I'm quite enjoying the game.

Yes the character episodes are new to this version. But they do tie in with what happens afterwards.

73 hours in now. I've finished the majority of the non-2D mode quests (haven't even visited Tickington in all this time, lol), and am ready to tackle the Fortress of Fear. I'm glad to know that there's essentially an entire third act to this game, because the time seemed to pass quickly. Too quickly.

Anyone pick up 2 or 3 since they are on sale?

Just started Act II, thirty hours in. This is my lunch-break game, so I've just been slowly picking away at it. I assume I'm what...only a third of the way through the game? I've really enjoyed my time so far, but I'm afraid I won't get through the game before AC:NH arrives. DQ XI will have to be shelved as AC:NH is going to be my main game for several months.

Got back into the demo again and it still amazes me how great this game looks on the Switch. I am 13 hours into the demo and can't believe how long this demo is.

@Tasuki I got the Switch version with portability in mind, but mainly ended up playing it on the TV. It looks GREAT docked. Portable mode isn't bad, but it's one of those games where I want it to look as good as possible.

I don't regret going for the Switch version, though. I wouldn't want to play this without the orchestral OST and faster battle mode. And they apparently made the forging a lot less annoying in this version.

@Ralizah I play most of my Switch games docked, I have never been one for portable gaming. I can't compare this version to the PS4 version cause I passed on the PS4 version for this one. I am just waiting for the Switch version to get as low as the PS4 version.

@Tasuki Good luck with that. It's a Nintendo published title, so I'm guessing $39.99 is the hard bottom it'll drop to years from now in a sale.

@Ralizah It's not published by Nintendo it's Published by Square. So I figure in a few months or so it will be down to $19.99 like the PS4 version did after a year or so after release.

@Tasuki It's published by Nintendo in both the UK and the US. Feel free to check that out on the game's product page on Nintendo's website if you don't believe me.

@Ralizah That's the only site that mentions Nintendo published it. Every other site I go to GameStop, Square Enix, Amazon all say Square which I am inclined to believe. After all if it was published by Nintendo it wouldn't have been on PS4 first or at all.

@Tasuki ...you don't think Nintendo knows better about who published the Switch version of the game than GameStop?

And, for the record, Amazon also lists Nintendo as the publisher for DQXIS.

They've published other Switch ports of third party games, too.

@Ralizah And again if Nintendo did publish it it wouldn't have been on PS4, last time I checked Nintendo doesn't publish games for the PlayStation.

Nintendo published the switch versions of Dragon Quest Builders, Dragon Quest Builders 2, and Dragon Quest XI (at least outside of Japan).

They are completely capable of publishing an specific version of a game, it doesn't make the older releases disappear, and it doesn't really give them any special kind of ownership over the game as a whole.

In fact, Nintendo often publishes games for Square Enix (on their own consoles). Mostly those SE doesn't see as huge sellers in our side of the world, like spinoffs and obscure titles.

Other examples include Bravely Default, The World Ends With You, and Octopath Traveler.

Yep, it also says Nintendo on the spine of the physical copy. That's usually the case when Nintendo is the publisher.

And why would Nintendo lie about being the publisher on their website?

Just beat DQ1 in the Trilogy collection on Switch. Primitive, but still good! Short, but sweet! 7/10.
