The upcoming Switch version of Dragon Quest XI – Dragon Quest XI: Echoes Of An Elusive Age S, to give it its full title – will contain scenarios which weren’t present in the PS4 and PC versions, Square Enix has confirmed.
The news comes from a livestream hosted by the developer today, in which a small tease of gameplay footage was shared, giving us another quick look at the game running on Switch. No additional details have been shared surrounding exactly what these scenarios may contain, but it’s a nice little bit of news to hear nonetheless.
The footage we just mentioned has been captured in this YouTube video below; rather than focusing almost exclusively on dramatic cutscenes like the official trailer, these clips show more of the dialogue-heavy scenes (even if it is all still in Japanese). Feel free to check it out below.
