Dragon Quest XI has been promised for the Nintendo Switch for some time, but last year, only the PlayStation 4 and PC saw the worldwide release of the title, which originally launched in 2017 in Japan. Today, Nintendo used the Direct presentation to announce that its hybrid console is making up for the delay with the ultimate edition of the game.
Dragon Quest XI S is coming to the Nintendo Switch in the fall, and it features everything from the original releases, including the ability to play in either 3D graphics or the 16-bit 2D style, if you want to go retro. There are, however, some elements that make this release a little more compelling, such as new, fully orchestrated music for battles field exploration. You have the option to listen to the original soundtrack, too, if you'd like.
What's more, it looks like this release will include new stories, each one focusing on one of the main characters of the game, which will reveal some secrets about them. You also have the option to play the game with either Japanese or English voice acting, giving you more choices for how you want to play the game.
Of course, the game will be arriving about a year later than the version for competing platforms, but if you have yet to play the game, you may want to hold out for the more complete version later this year.
