Dragon Quest XI Coming West Next Year

By Jason Krell on at

Dragon Quest XI comes out today in Japan, and to celebrate, creator Yuji Horii announced plans to bring it to English as Dragon Quest XI: Echoes Of An Elusive Age. There’s no word on which platforms it’ll hit, but publisher Square Enix says it’ll be out in 2018.

“The game is currently being localized into five languages, including English,” Horii said. “There’s quite a lot of text, so it’s an exorbitant amount of work. But we’re doing our best and working hard to get this game to all of you as soon as possible.”

Dragon Quest XI is on both PS4 and 3DS in Japan, with a Switch release to follow. Previous Dragon Quest 3DS games have been published by Nintendo in the United States and Europe.
