Dragon Quest XI Direct

Finally a first look at Swi......


ONLY 3DS version focus?

My thoughts exactly! Man, lots of games I want coming to the 3ds, but since buying a switch I can't game on that anymore... Come on switch version! (Of all of 'em Pokémon, mh stories, Metroid, ace attorney, even that weird snack world)

And yet still no mention of a Western release

Western Release in 2019? Sad

Sounds about right. I'm worried about the 3DS version if it comes to that.

Getting very worried about the Switch version... Sony may have made a behind the scenes play to keep it off Switch, similar to what may have happened with Monster Hunter.

Me too.
They officially said it was in development right?

I believe officially, they said they were looking into it.

Think it was supposed to be in development, yeah, but they started on the Switch version some later. But it truly was sad not to see it at E3.

Seeing as how poorly DQ Heroes runs on Switch, I could see them having trouble making DQ XI work satisfactory. They probably have their work cut out for them porting the game, having to make lots of platform specific tweaks. That's why it's taking time and they're not confident to talk about it yet.

Its one thing to not talk about it or show it, but its another to not even confirm it's existence. They've even started talking about the PS4/3DS game bundles you can preorder, so why is the Switch left out of all the marketing plans? Not even a single SKU? I don't have any doubts that they can pull it off well enough. A mainline Dragon Quest is bound to have way more effort put into it than a Musou game after all. Its almost as if at best, we can expect a late port...
