Square Enix has been releasing quite a bit of info on Dragon Quest XI lately, but one thing that’s still unknown is the game’s release date. However, that is soon going to change – on April 11th, Square Enix will announce the game’s release date at a special event. This event will be livestreamed – while there will be a Nico Nico stream, for Western audiences the best option will likely be Youtube Live. Luckily, the stream page is already up and running – check back here in 20 days!

As far as Nintendo systems is concerned, we will only hear about the release date of the 3DS version at this event. The Switch version, which will likely be released at a later date, is not mentioned by Square Enix with regards to this event.

Bandai Namco uploaded a second trailer for its Japanese 3DS game Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission X today. We have it below.

Nintendo has been involved with a legal battle concerning 3DS over the past few years. Tomita Technologies previously claimed that the handheld uses similar glasses-free technology that the company patented. However, on Friday, a United States Appeals Court confirmed that the 3DS features technology that is “significantly different” than what’s covered in in the filing.

The New York Federal Court ruled in April 2016 that Nintendo did not infringe Tomita’s patent. It’s the second win for Nintendo by the Appeals Court, which first reversed a 2013 judgment against Nintendo. Tomita also attempted to enforce a similar patent claim in Japan, but was unable to do so.

Ajay Singh, Nintendo of America’s Director of Litigation and Compliance, said in a statement:

“We are very pleased with the Court’s decision. Nintendo 3DS has never used the technology in Tomita’s patent, and the Court’s ruling confirms Nintendo’s long tradition of using its own innovative technology. This case also proves once again that Nintendo will aggressively defend patent lawsuits when our products do not infringe, even when we must do so over many years, through multiple trials and in multiple countries.”
