switch version most likely got cancelled. havent heard anything about it since the announcement. i will just buy the ps4 version then.

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".

http://www.ign.com/articles/2018/03/28/dragon-quest-11-ps4-and-pc-release-date-announced-switch-coming-much-later-no-3ds-version

Such news is followed a lot by a cancellation in the past. Unless the Switch version is getting new content, it may be futile anyway since most sales will go to the PS4/PC.

Also don't forget that the NS version should just be a weaker version from the PS4 version. Porting should not be that difficult.



In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

Please don't open old wounds like that.



FINALLY! we get a date.

".....and the 3DS version released in Japan will not be released in the west at all."

Why? oh well.

No localisation of the 3ds version is really weird. As is still knowing absolutely nothing about it on the Switch.

Probably using those resources to speed up the switch version? It makes more sense, the Switch version has a higher chance of selling better, even with a much lower player base compared to the 3DS.

A year after the japanese release. They are so slow lol. Very happy it is getting new stuff though. PS4 will have an amazing 2018!!

But the 3ds game is done, the only resources it would need is translation teams and distribution/publishing. None of those resources can be put to use on the Switch version yet as that game isn't released, and doesn't even have a date for a Japan release, never mind the rest of the world.

Lose interest in the game due to lack of info (Switch).

It ll probably come out at some point, just you might have to wait a additional half year, or year's time.

The news that its not comeing to 3DS sucks though.

Because the 3DS models are all backwards compat, to play DS/DSi games, you could play:

DQ4,5,6,9 from the DS And DQ7,8,11 from the 3DS.

It woulda been cool to have DQ4 -> 11 playable on the 3DS.

Sadly thats not going to happend, unless some "fan translation" of the japanese 3DS game is in the works.



About time, but it is so GD late even without 3DS/Switch versions. Can I blame the PC?
