Additional New Features
Party members will follow you on the field.
You can talk directly to party members without opening the menu.
You can change the music from Orchestra to Synthesizer at any point by going to the sound settings in the menu.
You can dash with the ZR button.
By using the new “Horse Bell” item, you can call your horse at any time.
You can now gain experience points when your horse knocks away an enemy on the field.
You can change the battle speed to “Normal,” “Fast,” or “Really Fast.”
The quests from the 3DS version of Dragon Quest XI in which you visit the worlds of past Dragon Quest titles will be included in the Switch version, but not without changes.
I knew that all the things crossed out were new features, but the rest aren't? Seriously??? Lmao. It straight up sounds like it would be annoying to play the vanilla version of this game. Most of that is stuff that's pretty essential and normal in open-ish games, especially games with large fields.
