Dragon Quest XI

The Switch version of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age still has “many things” that need to be worked out, producer Hokuto Okamoto told Polygon at E3 2018.

“We’re making it,” Okamoto said regarding the Switch version. “We’re still making it. I can’t say anything more.”

Okamoto continued, “When we first announced [Dragon Quest XI], the Switch hadn’t come out yet, and the development kit also wasn’t finalized. The hardware specs weren’t out yet, but we were like, ‘We can manage this. We can put this out on the Switch.’”

Okamoto would not say how long “taking care of all those many things” that need adjustments before the Switch version is released would take.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is due out for PlayStation 4 and PC in North America and Europe on September 4.
