At Square Enix Live yesterday, Dragon Quest fans were presented with a brief trailer reinforcing the fact Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition was coming to the Switch this Fall. It was at this moment there was a collective sigh, with everyone assuming there wouldn't be a release date reveal anytime soon.

Fortunately, Nintendo's E3 2019 Direct presentation pulled through in the end. Shortly after Dragon Quest's 'The Hero' was unveiled as one of the DLC fighters coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, we received the smashing news Dragon Quest XI S would finally arrive on the Switch this September. Yep, after waiting many years for its arrival, it appears we'll finally get our hands on this epic role-playing title on 27th September.

Here's some information about what the Switch version of the game will offer, directly from Nintendo's PR:

The Nintendo Switch version boasts all the sprawling content of the original game along with newly added character-specific stories, fully orchestrated field and battle music, additional monsters to ride, side-quests to journey into past DRAGON QUEST worlds, and the ability to change between HD and retro-inspired 16-bit visuals. Additional enhancements include the ability to speed up battle sequences and the choice of a Japanese or English voice track.

And we also have this lovely trailer to share:

So, if you want to get to know 'The Hero' who will be in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate a little bit better, it might be worth checking this one out.
