Square-Enix stumped as to what's causing Dragon Quest XI S crashing issues

Well that's not good!

Just yesterday, Square-Enix noted that some people player the Dragon Quest XI S demo are experiencing an issue with crashing, and it has something to do with the area of Delcadar. Square-Enix said they were investigating the issue, and would report back with findings. Square-Enix stayed true to their word and has offered up new details on the situation, but its not exactly encouraging info.

According to Dragon Quest XI S producer Hokuto Okamoto, the team hasn't been able to find the root cause of the problem. They're going to continue looking for the problem, but for now, they've suggested the following possible solutions.

- Remove the microSD memory card and insert it into the system again

- Delete the demo and reinstall it

- Delete the demo save data

- Turn off the system and turn it back on

Square-Enix releases the eighth Dragon Quest XI S DLC ‘Voice Drama’ promo video

Such a drama queen

Square-Enix continues to roll out the Voice Drama DLC promos for Dragon Quest XI S. Again, we have no word no whether this content will release outside of Japan, but it seems a tad unlikely.

A fix is on the way

A demo for Dragon Quest XI S is available on Switch, and it comes packed with 10 hours of content! Unfortunately, it seems one area in particular is causing some trouble for players, causing their game to crash. The issue is happening somewhere in Delcadar, but Square-Enix is aware of the problem area, and is currently working to nail down a solution.

Dragon Quest XI - 3DS Vs. Switch Vs. PS4 video comparison

The 3DS tries its best...

If you thought the Switch Vs. PS4 comparison was interesting, get ready for something even more entertaining. The video above throws in the 3DS version of Dragon Quest XI for good measure as well. I'd say there's just a slight difference between that version and the two console ports.

Now this is a quality port

With a meaty Dragon Quest XI S demo out for the Switch today, we can finally get a good look at how the port is turning out. We knew the game was going to look pretty close to the PS4 version, but how close is it? Check out the video above to see both versions put head-to-head.

This version also lets you ride and attack with monsters on the field to earn experience points, as well as change between HD or 16-bit visuals, symphonic or synth music, and English or Japanese audio. Complete the tale with new character-focused stories, and travel to past DRAGON QUEST worlds!
