Dragon Quest XI  S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive EditionNintendo fans are long overdue for their own Switch port of Dragon Quest XI. Any worries about such a port can now be put to rest as today’s Nintendo Direct revealed that the game will indeed see a release on Switch later this year. The official title for this version will be Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition and for a good reason. Exclusive to this “definitive edition” will be the ability to change between the standard 3D and a classic, pixelated 2D style on the fly. Players can also play with either English or Japanese audio. Additionally, this will be the first version of the game to include a fully-orchestrated soundtrack. Like the visuals, this soundtrack and the original can be swapped on the fly. Believe me, the new soundtrack alone is worth watching the trailer below.

Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition will be available for Nintendo Switch later this fall. To learn more about the existing PlayStation 4 version, take a look at our review of Dragon Quest XI. Also, be sure to check out today’s Nintendo Direct to learn more about this definitive version and other announced titles.
