Dragon Quest XI is headed to Nintendo Switch as Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age.
As Nintendo revealed in a recent Nintendo Direct, this definitive edition of Dragon Quest XI is headed to the Nintendo Switch this fall, and it comes with a few new major features that should get any Dragon Quest fans interested.
First of all, players can choose to swap between the game’s normal 3D gameplay and a a 2D, top down, 16-bit version of the game made to look like games from the past, a feature previously exclusive to the 3DS version, which never made it stateside. Players can swap between the two modes on the fly. Similarly, this new version of the game features a fully-orchestrated soundtrack, and players can choose to swap between the orchestrated version and the original whenever they want.
The game also includes a few new stories for the different characters in the game, though the Nintendo Direct didn’t give any clues as to what we’ll see there. Finally, Dragon Quest XI S now includes Japanese language options and subtitles.
Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age launches exclusively on the Nintendo Switch sometime this fall.
