Forums - Gaming Discussion - Dragon Quest XI coming September 4th to PS4 and Steam - Switch 'much later', no 3DS version

This is some BS. The game is not even that demanding yet they cannot release the Switch version this year? That really sucks because I wanted the portability to get in as much playtime as possible.

Guess I will have to settle for the PS4 version if I can't find anything else to play....

A 3DS-release in the west was never going to happen, but the lack of a timely a timely Switch-version is bad. If i ever buy this it will be the Switch-version, no interest in playing this on PS4



That's a major bummer for my wife and I. We love playing the DQ games on our DS and 3DS systems. Switch version is a handheld, so I suppose that will have to do, but until then, I won't be missing out on the game on PS4 or Steam either, depending on which version gets better reviews.



I can't believe they are abandoning the 3DS version, it's the same fucking game, already translated, it's just free money.


And we miss on ANOTHER 3DS Dragon Quest game, must be like the 6th now.


No Switch version yet makes sense, it hasn't even come out on Japan guys.



This sucks, the 3DS version was the best one for me and I was waiting for it. I plan to buy a PS4 to play Valkyria Chronicles 4, but Dragon Quest XI on the other hand is less relevant to me now, I'll probably buy it when it's hit by heavy discounts.

Time to pull out the wallet again. She's taken a hammering this year xD



Glad that the Switch version is coming to west, it'll be later but I can wait.

Switch version is just confirmed for West also:

As for the Switch version, things are slightly less clear. "We are also developing the Switch version for Europe and North America," reads Square Enix's statement, "but development is expected to take a long time from a technological standpoint as well, so we still have a long way to go until its release".

At a Dragon Quest event, a Square Enix PR representative told IGN that the Switch version would definitely not be released in 2018, and could end up being released "much later".

I played about half of Dragon quest 8. Then I lost my memory card. No way in hell I was re-playing that on the 3ds so I never finished it.

Then I played Dragon Quest Heroes 1 and 2, and enjoyed them both. Found the characters amusing.

So this will be the next one I give a shot. At least now I don't have to debate whether to get it on ps4 or switch.
