Square Enix confirms Dragon Quest XI release date for the West in 2018

Jason Clement

Dragon Quest fans, you can rest easy now. Square Enix has finally confirmed Dragon Quest XI's release date in the West; you'll finally get to play it in September.


Of course, we had previously heard from Dragon Quest creator Yuji Hori that the game would be making its way westward in 2018 so this doesn't come as too much of a surprise.


Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will purportedly have over 100 hours of content and will also offer changes not seen in the original Japanese release, such as an English voiceover track, a new mode called "Draconian Quest" (essentially a hard mode for more experienced players), overhauled menus and UI, a camera mode that allows players to take in views of the landscapes and character models, and a new dash function in addition to improved character movement and camera control.


If you pre-order the game on the PlayStation store, you'll gain access to "The Legend Reborn" theme in addition to DLC items when the game launches.


Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will release on PlayStation 4 and Steam on September 4. You can check out some of the first footage of the Western version of the game below.

I'm honestly surprised we're not getting the 3DS version. I was half expecting that we'd ONLY get the 3DS version and only because Nintendo made it happen, like with the remakes of 7 and 8. Not that I'm complaining since I actually wanted it on console, so I'll be buying the PS4 version at launch for sure.
