Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition

 

The Luminary’s adventure through Erdrea has now arrived on multiple platforms in the form of Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition. The title has just launched for Xbox One (as an Xbox Play Anywhere title), Steam, Windows 10, PlayStation 4, and Epic Games Store. The original Dragon Quest game came out over 34 years ago. It was known to western gamers at the time as Dragon Warrior. This latest release marks the series debut on Xbox, allowing a new group of players to dive in. A free demo allowing up to 10 hours of gameplay from the beginning of the game is available on Steam, Xbox / Windows 10, and PlayStation 4.

 

The definitive edition adds new enhancements and features, such as new character side stories that let you get to know your companions better than ever. There is also the Retro 2D mode, allowing you the option to play with retro graphics inspired by classic 16-bit RPGs. 16-Bit World of Tickington allows you to visit past Dragon Quest worlds with more side quests that have been re-imagined in retro style. The definitive edition also gives players the option to play with new Japanese voice-overs or the original English ones. Enjoy a full orchestrated soundtrack, along with the ability to switch between this and the original synthesized soundtrack. Use the Photo mode to preserve your adventure forever, and enjoy adjustable battle speeds, new Draconian Mode options, and more.

Join the Luminary and his loyal companions, as you embark on an adventure spanning 100+ hours. Cross huge continents and oceans while discovering his past. A terrible threat now faces his world, and something must be done about it. The world of Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition and its inhabitants were created and brought to life by Yuji Horii (creator of the series), Akira Toriyama (character designer), and the soundtrack by Koichi Sugiyama (the series composer).

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
