Voice Drama Downloadable Content

The following is a message from Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii, who was unable to appear on the program due to poor health:

“Thanks to everyone who made their voice heard, Dragon Quest XI S is being made to dive deeper into the story. And new story is also being added that allows you to experience each character as the protagonist. Through the unexpected sides of these characters and previously untold stories, I hope that you can be able to appreciate each character even more. I wanted everyone to further enjoy the drama of those characters, so I am actually making something as additional downloadable content. That something is a ‘voice drama.’ I would like to share more details now, but I should be able to share new information in June.”

Fuck yeah. This is shaping up to be one of the best games of all time. The original DQXI was already way up there, but they're just pumping more content and polish into an already incredible game. Very keen for this. The quests from the 3DS game should actually make sense to me now that I've had time to go through most other DQ games

Okay, I was on the fence about this game in terms of buying it day 1 but damn, this is amazing. Day 1 for sure. The quality of life improvements are stellar and incorporating the 3DS side quests as this is going to be amazing. Switch owners and JRPG fans...please buy this game.

At least Square Enix does make the wait worthwhile instead of just bringing a late port

For a moment I was asking myself when was SE going to announce the game for the Switch, only to remember they had already done that. They take so long between announcement and delivery my mind starts playing tricks on me.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

I'm eagerly awaiting this game. I was just looking at these old Final Fantasy games coming to Switch and thought, "looks fun, but I want a new game. They just don't make JRPGs like that anymore." And then I realized, "Yes they do! It's Dragon Quest XI." Can't wait.

The only reason I haven't bought this on PS4 yet is because I'm waiting to see if they plan on adding all these new features and content into the game, either as an update or paid DLC. If it turns out they're keeping it all Switch exclusive then I guess that's the version I'll be buying, lol :P

Planning to get this. I have 7 for 3ds bit didn't get into it much. Recently got ff 9 on switch and have mildly enjoyed it, so I'm hopeful for dq11

I wasn't planning on getting this but the deal seems to get better and better.
