During the Jump Festa event in Japan, Square Enix revealed that the JRPG, Dragon Quest XI, is going to come to the Nintendo Switch. As of now, it seems that the game will only be available in Japan. There will be some new features that will be available for the game, and Square Enix released a teaser announcing the news. The trailer features Japanese-language voiceovers which were not present when the game was released for the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation 4.
One of the biggest new things that will be in the Switch version of the game affects the game’s ending. Instead of being locked into a single choice of who you marry at the end, you get access to options. You will even be able to choose male characters as well. More details for Dragon Quest XI on the Nintendo Switch will be revealed during a live stream in January, Square Enix said.
When Dragon Quest XI was released in North America, it came with some updates that were not present when it was first released in Japan. Those updates include system enhancements such as improved character and camera movement, a camera mode which allows players to take screenshots of the game and its many beautiful landscapes, monsters and characters, a hard mode called Draconian Quest which offers additional challenges for more experienced players, overhauled menus and UI with graphical enhancements and more intuitive navigation, and the game was packaged with English-language voice-over. All of these gameplay updates will be present in the Switch version of the game along with whatever new feature they plan to bring to this port which will be revealed in January. Dragon Quest XI is available for the PlayStation 4 and PC. The Nintendo Switch version of the game will be coming to Japan sometime in 2019.
