Dragon Quest XI | oprainfall

Square Enix held a press event to announce that Dragon Quest XI is in development for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS. This will be the next chapter in the company’s RPG series following the 2012 release of Dragon Quest X.

There will be graphical differences between the console and handheld version, but their story will be the same. The 3DS version will utilize the two screens, with 3D art on the top half and 2D sprites on the bottom.

There is possibility that this game is also in development for the NX, but that is all Square Enix can say at this time. Possibly to not shed any secrets about Nintendo’s upcoming console out next year.

    Not going to lie the 2d bottom screen with 3d top screen looks really cool.

    Interesting that it’s split between PS4 and 3DS. I was kind of hoping it would be on Wii U but I understand the decision. The console market is tricky nowadays and you have to stick where your genre is.

    The two screens on the 3DS look awesome! If we can only get one version, I hope that’s the one. Unless, of course, they make it New 3DS exclusive, in which case, goodbye NA localization for that one.

    Help us Op Rainfall. Operation Hero has been pushing to get DQ brought back proper to the West for years with no success. You guys are one of the loudest, most successful campaigners for JRPGing there is, we DQ fans could really use your pull in convincing those stuffshirt CEOs that there is a market for these titles here.

      campaigning is a lot of work, but i will push this request to the higher ups. I’m with you though! 🙂

      Thank you very much! I certainly wouldn’t be pleading to you if my own begging to Square had yielded any results. I don’t know what else individuals like myself can do.
