Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age was a decent albeit inventory regular take on the vintage JRPG sequence. It released in the west in 2018 for Personal computer and PS4, just before a significantly expanded version launched for Nintendo Swap the subsequent year.
This Switch model was the actual offer: the authentic game’s significantly-criticized soundtrack got the full (and a great deal demanded) orchestral therapy. It also extra a fantastic 2D manner, enabling the activity to be played in wonderful 16-little bit pixel art, as well as new aspect quests and a picture manner.
People features are last but not least coming to Pc (as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox 1), but there are a number of caveats. It will not likely be an update: you are going to need to have to fork out for the entire inquiring cost of $39.99 (AU$54.95). I’ve arrived at out to Square Enix for clarity on this, but as of now, you can find no point out wherever of a free update or a cheaper enhance DLC alternative.
Meanwhile, there is certainly the prospect the graphics will not be rather the similar as the 2018 Computer model. The game’s FAQ advises that “it’s a port of the Nintendo Swap variation, so the graphics are not the same as they ended up for the first Dragon Quest XI for PlayStation 4”. There is certainly no explicit mention of Pc right here.
This indicates that the new Definitive Edition is a straight port of the Switch edition, while the FAQ also notes that “the resolution and body rate are at least as superior as they had been for the unique PlayStation 4 release”.
I will not assume it truly is substantially to get worried about: the Change edition seemed just like the PS4 variation, just with the usual resolution and frame level disadvantages. But I will arrive at out to Square Enix for more information. In the meantime, here’s the Steam web site. Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition (which is a mouthful) releases December 4.
This is the announcement trailer:
