Update: Dragon Quest XI S is releasing on September 27, new screenshots

Update (June 11, 2019)

During Tuesday morning's E3 2019 Nintendo Direct, it was announced the Dragon Quest XI S will actually release on September 27. Turns out we didn't have to wait long at all for the official release date. Pretty crazy to think that this was the first game actually announced for the then Nintendo NX, and now we're only a couple of months away.  We've also got new screenshots from the Switch edition of the game, linked below.

During Square Enix's 2019 E3 presention, we got a new trailer for Dragon Quest XI S, the Definitive Edition of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age coming to Nintendo Switch this year. We already knew of most of these details from a Nintendo Direct earlier this year, including several new features, but it's nice to get some new footage and dial in on a Fall release window.


You can see the trailer below, courtesy of GameXplain. There are a few snippets of some of the classic 2D-style gameplay exclusive to this version of the game (in the west, anyway), but mostly it's a montage of cutscenes from throughout the story.

Stay tuned as we approach Fall and learn of the final release date.
