Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is coming to the Nintendo Switch with an extra-long title, as this updated version of the game is now called Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition.
Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition is an updated port of the original game, which will feature new arrangements of music, the ability to make the game look like the 16-bit entries of the series, and the addition of new scenarios starring the other party members outside of the Luminary.
One of the new features that is coming to Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition is a choice between English and Japanese voice acting, which is a feature that will be far more exciting to Japanese fans of the game, as the original version of Dragon Quest XI had no voice acting at all and it was only the international versions of the game that added any voices to the characters.
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age was one of the best games of 2018, yet it was overlooked due to some horrible scheduling on Square Enix's part, as they released it on the same day as Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4, which ensured that it received no press at all during its initial release.
The fact that Dragon Quest XI is receiving a new lease of life on the Nintendo Switch means that the game might finally receive the recognition it deserves, with the new content hopefully winning over fans who have completed the game on other systems. The rumors about a Dragon Quest representative coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate might also help the game find an audience on the Nintendo Switch.
Dragon Quest XI was actually the first game announced for the Nintendo Switch, back when it was referred to as the NX. It's good to see that the game is finally being released, along with Dragon Quest Builders 2, which may lead to other Dragon Quest titles being released for the Switch in the future.
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition will be released for the Nintendo Switch in the Fall.
