New screenshots of the upcoming Dragon Quest XI have been posted on 4Gamer, and our own Will Whitehurst has provided us with a translation which gives us more insight on what the latest game in the Dragon Quest series is like. Dragon Quest XI will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS. No plans for localization have been announced at this time, but we’re hoping Square Enix will throw Dragon Quest fans a bone. These look great!
The following is Will’s translation of 4Gamer’s story:
Today (August 13), Square Enix released screenshots from Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time, currently in development for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS.
One can enjoy the beautiful graphics of the PS4 version, which uses Unreal Engine 4, as well as the 3DS version, which has both super-deformed 3D graphics and 2D sprite art. Both are in development. As mentioned in the previous report, both versions have the same story, but make use of the best features of their respective hardware. The PS4 version’s screenshots showcase the graphics’ beauty in the massive world and water reflections, while the 3DS screenshots showcase the simultaneous use of 3D and 2D.
Now open to the public! These are in-game images from DQXI!
The best features of both platforms have been fully utilized in each version of this game, which can be played on two platforms.
The massive and beautiful world in the PS4 version spreads out. Its expression is realistic, with monsters that loiter around in the field, as well as the world seeming to come alive.
