Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition Journeys to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC Later This Year

Square Enix has announced that the previously Switch-exclusive Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age — Definitive Edition will arrive later this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. With all of the lovely gubbins originally included in the jam-packed Switch release, players setting out for adventure will be able to enjoy the new side stories, fully orchestrated soundtrack, Japanese voice audio, retro 2D graphics mode, and photo mode. Players will also be able to pay a visit to the 16-bit world of Tickington, allowing adventurers to experience various worlds from past entries in the series. You can see the initial reveal trailer below, which debuted during the Xbox Games Showcase earlier today.

Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age — Definitive Edition will arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on December 4th. Pre-orders for digital versions via Steam and the Microsoft Store are available now, with PlayStation Store pre-sales to open at a later date. For more information on the upcoming release of Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age — Definitive Edition, be sure to check the game’s official site.

(Editor’s Note: The PS4 and PC versions of Dragon Quest XI S are still based on the Nintendo Switch version of the game, according to Square Enix. As a result, the graphical fidelity of the game is more in keeping with that release than with the original game.)
