Famitsu hosted a live stream this week, and showcased plenty of footage from the Japanese Switch release Seiken Densetsu Collection. We’ve included the lengthy recording below.

During a live stream hosted earlier today, Dragon Quest XI producer and series creator Yuji Horii commented on the game’s Switch version. Unfortunately though, they couldn’t really say anything.

Here’s what was mentioned:

“We can’t say about anything concrete regarding the Switch version of Dragon Quest XI. When the timing comes that we can say something… there are grown-up reasons. When the time that we can say something does come, I think we’ll have something to say, so if you can please wait.”

Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii also added that “there are various circumstances.” What those circumstances are were not made clear.


Dragon Quest XI will be launching on 3DS alongside a PlayStation 4 version in July. That wasn’t the original plan, however. In a pamphlet provided to fans at the Dragon Quest XI “Countdown Carnival” hands-on events, it’s revealed that the 3DS version was added later on in development.

Originally, development started as only a PlayStation 4 title. 3DS production began later due to its increase in userbase and Square Enix wanting more fans to experience the game.

Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii had some concerns about 3DS players feeling that they were playing an inferior version. So when an idea was brought up to include both 2D and 3D perspectives, he said: “That’s good!”.

Funnily enough, Square Enix is also planning Dragon Quest XI for Switch. We’ve yet to see anything from that version though.

Once again, some new Dragon Quest XI features have been revealed via Jump magazine (thanks to Siliconera for the translation). This time, it’s stuff you’ll be able to do to take your mind off all the monster-slaying and dungeon-diving. There’s a casino in the game where you can gamble and play all kinds of games – from slots and roulette to horse racing.

You will actually get to ride the horses yourself instead of just betting on them. Navigate through an obstacle-ridden course and you might be able to earn fantastic prizes. Naturally, there are also more traditional casino games like poker, roulette and slots. Special tokens won at these games can also be exchanged for prizes.
