Dragon Quest XI Confirmed For The West in 2018
Dragon Quest XI Coming to the West Next Year
Square Enix have announced that Dragon Quest XI will be brought to the West at some point in 2018.
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age was confirmed in a video message from series creator Yuji Horii who said localisation of the game is already under way and that the team hopes to have it complete as soon as possible.
The veteran game developer also remarked on last year’s 30th anniversary of the series stating:
“Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be able to continue to develop this game for over 30 years.”
According to Yuji Horii the game is about a hero and begins unconventionally as the hero is being ‘pursued’.
The game, which has also been worked on by manga artist Akira Toriyama and composer Koichi Sugiyama, is set to release in Japan this week on Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation 4.
More details on the Western release will be available in Autumn this year.
The very first Dragon Quest game was released in 1986 for the Nintendo Entertainment System and proved popular after a slow start selling over 2 million copies in Japan.
