The Switch version of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will be titled Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age S, Square Enix announced during its Dragon Quest Paradise News Station event at Tokyo Game Show 2018.
According to Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii, among the meanings of the “S” in the title are “Switch,” “Special,” “Shaberu” (Speaking), and “Seiyuu” (Voice Actor).
While a release date was not announced, Horii said that it will still take a bit of time before the Switch version is released.
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is available now for PlayStation 4 and PC. In Japan, a 3DS version is also available. The western release of Dragon Quest XI added new features, such as voice acting and dashing, which were not in the original Japanese release.
Thanks, Games Talk.
Update 6:00 a.m.: However, in response to Horii saying “Shaberu,” Dragon Quest XI producer Hokuto Okamoto added, “Even though shaberu (speaking) will be taking priority… I think there are some players who would prefer Dragon Quest without voices, and we’re keeping that in mind. Horii will be able to say more about that at some point…”
