Dragon Quest 11 Coming to Nintendo Switch

One of the best turn-based JRPG title from Square Enix, Dragon Quest 11 will be coming to Nintendo Switch on 2019.

The latest release from the long-running turn-based Japanese role-playing game series Dragon Quest by developer/publisher Square Enix was Dragon Quest XI, which came out in Japan for Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation 4 on July 2017.

September 2018 saw the worldwide release of the game on PC and PS4, garnering mostly positive feedback from critics and fans alike for design and gameplay. Recently at the Jump Festa event this weekend, a Nintendo Switch is announced for 2019.

In its original release for Japan, the title didn't include any voiced characters but when it was brought over to a broader audience, they added English-language voice over alongside a bunch of new gameplay mechanics.

Also, the Switch version will add some aspects that will alter the ending of the game because players will now be allowed to choose their bride and it is not locked to a single marriage choice. Players can also decide to live with two male characters Erik or Hendrik if they want.

More details on Dragon Quest XI S will be revealed later on a Square Enix live-stream in January, when they will also share the official release date for the title. We are currently guessing for a possible release window for April 2019 but nothing is set in the stones yet.

It is still unclear that when there will be a North American release of the game since they haven't given much details of the Japanese release but given that the original game took nearly fourteen months to see a worldwide release, it is not coming for the rest of the world anytime soon.
