Dragon Quest XI S Coming to the Xbox One and PS4 (With Update)

During the Xbox Game Showcase pre-show, a Dragon Quest XI S Xbox One port was announced. It will be coming to the console. It will also be available via Xbox Game Pass. It will be known as Dragon Quest XI S: Definitive Edition.

Dragon Quest XI is available on the PlayStation 4 and PC. It eventually came to the Nintendo Switch in an “ultimate” edition known as Dragon Quest XI S. The Xbox One version will be a port of the Nintendo Switch version.

Here’s the official reveal trailer. It starts by showing off the standard Dragon Quest XI adventure and all people expect from that. Then, it goes on to confirm that yes, this will have the former Nintendo-exclusive 2D content and extra storylines that were added to the Nintendo Switch version and appeared in the Japan-exclusive Nintendo 3DS version. This also means people will get to participate in that extra boss fight and get to spend time getting closer to party members.

Update: The official website for Dragon Quest XI has been announced. It confirms that this Definitive Edition will also come to the PlayStation 4 and PC on December 4, 2020.

Dragon Quest XI S: Definitive Edition will come to the Xbox One, PS4, and PC on December 4, 2020. You can immediately find Dragon Quest XI on the PlayStation 4 and PC worldwide and Nintendo 3DS in Japan. People can find Dragon Quest XI S on the Nintendo Switch worldwide.

Personal Note: Yeah.  Got the Switch version.  Should have waited.  Everyone should have.

Well, only difference is the visuals, and that's not much a deal.

My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

Anytime you buy a game you are taking the risk that a better/more feature-rich/cheaper version of the game will not come out later. Pretty common these days.

Please Watch/Share this video so it gets shown in Hollywood.

I mean, I thought it would eventually make it to other platforms. But I couldn't wait so I caved in. I'll get it on Steam again.

I prefer DQ as a portable series. So I'm glad I got it when I did.

Switch version remains the best.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Shipments

Still have my PS4 copy unopened, only bought it for like £15 though... wonder if we'll be able to buy the upgrade separately similar to Final Fantasy XV with the Royal pack

Glad that PS4 and PC players can enjoy the best version of the game. Although, making them pay for a full game again sounds like a scam to me.

btw, If the graphics are gonna be the only difference, I still prefer the Switch version. It already looks great, it has all the aditional content... and it's portable.'s 40 freaking bucks? Switch Tax smh... On a separate note... why is this just not DLC?

Edit: So is the same geometry and textures as the Switch version...just better framerate and resolution? Ehhhhh...

to be fair, usually the base game is getting updated for free or at the very least adds content via paid DLC and not a re-release you have to buy again.
