Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age S - 2019

Recommended Posts

Just want to post in its own thread, that this will most likely be my first Dragon Quest. I have never been interested in them before, but this one looks too good to pass up.

It's easily one of the best JRPGs I have played in a long time. You're in for a treat.

The trailer from the Japanese Direct showcased some more of the 16-bit art style, as well as some more Switch gameplay.

I'm so hyped to play through this again, especially with me going through the the DS games at the moment. Looking at the screenshots below, it will be like i'm still playing the DS games if I choose to use the 2D mode. :D

Here's a list of features that are in this version.

Quote

- "super fast" battle speed
- japanese VA
- party members follow you on the field
- you can call your horse from anywhere on the field
- killing enemies while on the horse earns you XP
- the 2D mode from the 3DS version (you can play the whole game like a SNES RPG, and can toggle between 2D and 3D mid-game)
- orchestrated music, can switch back to MIDI (it's still not clear whether everything is orchestrated or not, but field and battle themes are confirmed)
- new story content, focusing on each of the party members
- the retro areas from the 3DS version are back, you get to revisit areas from each of the past 10 dragon quest games
- more marriage options (you can choose to "live with" male characters as well)
- there's going to be an audio drama DLC coming after launch

Interesting note is that the 3DS and console versions locations aren't 1:1 so they've probably done additional work to make it work here.

Happy the retro areas are returning, was worried they wouldn't bring them over.

Can't believe it's ten years since the last mainline (offline) Dragon Quest!

Oh, this doesn't seem to be the case.
