Dragon Quest XI released in North America
Square Enix promises to release Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age in Europe and America this fall, September 4, so far only on the PlayStation 4 and PC. The game was released in Japan last July. Dragon Quest XI is finally coming to North America in September, and for the western release, the developers adapted the project a little: made small changes and tried to make the new RPG as comfortable as possible for a wide range of players.
The exact date of the European release of Dragon Quest XI on the Nintendo Switch and 3DS is still unknown.
The version for Nintendo Switch is still in development, and will not definitely be released this year. But the option for Nintendo 3DS will remain exclusive for Japan; its western release does not fit into the company’s business strategy.
Dragon Quest XI that is finally coming to North America in September tells about the dangerous journey of a hero, who, together with his friends, must uncover the secret of the sinister threat looming over the world. The player will explore a huge world, visually designed as a mixture of village-shading and photorealistic details.
The developer promises content for more than 100 hours, a large number of side quests and mini-games. A mechanic of step-by-step battles provides a reasonably low gunpowder penetration but has a depth that will interest experienced players.
A young man is going to take part in the ceremony of the majority and travels to the sacred stone together with his childhood friend. After a series of unexpected events, the adventurer discovers that he is the reincarnation of the legendary hero of the forgotten centuries.
The main character goes on a journey to an unknown world in order to unravel the mystery of his past, but the reception he receives is far from warm. After revealing his identity to the king, the hero is branded as the Darkness (The Darkspawn) and hunted for. Fleeing from his pursuers, he collects a group of young adventurers who believe his stories.
