If you want to play Dragon Quest XI on a Nintendo console you won’t have to play it on your 3DS anymore. Square Enix has announced that Dragon Quest XI S will hit the Switch sometime in 2019. The release has only been confirmed for Japan so far. It should be noted that there are fewer barriers to an international launch now that the version with English voices is widely available on the PS4 and Windows PCs. Hopefully, they will do it.
You might have noticed the “S”. This suggests that it isn’t just a straightforward port. Without giving you any spoilers, we can tell you that it does change the ending. We can look forward to Square Enix revealing more during a livestream in January, so you may have more reasons to revisit the game if you’re a fan.
The Switch release opens the game up to a wider range players, and delivers a portable version that’s much closer to its counterpart. It’s good that fans have something more to look forward to in this series. They would do well to release this in the US as there are many fans here who are hungry for more from this franchise.
