Another game has been confirmed to be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Square Enix has announced that a Dragon Quest XI port for the Nintendo Switch is on the way.
Square Enix did not make any statement about the fate of Dragon Quest XI during the Jump Festa 2017. However, they announced later that the port for the game is already underway. The announcement appeared on the official Nintendo website. The information about the game being part of Switch came as a postscript at the end of the announcement.
"It should also be noted that a Nintendo Switch launch is also in the works," says the rough translation of the announcement. With that very short statement, there are no other clues whether that will be a port for the 3DS or PS4 version of the game.
Most probably, most of the information about the Nintendo Switch will be unveiled on January 12 during the planned big event to let selected people have a first taste of what Switch is all about.
Dragon Quest XI follows the story of Ishi, a 16-year old boy and his loyal friend Camus, who's the exact opposite of Ishi. Together, they set on a journey and battle various types of monsters.
Aside from the announcement, Nintendo also posted some teaser videos about the Dragon Quest XI gameplay. Based on the trailer, the game has amazing visuals and interesting fight scenes. The video below shows both the PlayStation 4 and 3DS versions of the game, which are both amazing. The 3DS version shows a the game in both 2D and 3D mode. Thus, players have the choice between 2D battles or 3D fight scenes by using the d-pad or circle pad.
Dragon Quest XI is originally heading towards the Nintendo DS and will be released in Japan in 2017. Nintendo has collaborated with Toy Logic to bring Dragon Quest XI to life. The team was also the same one which brought back Kid Icarus with Sora.
