Square Enix working on “technical adjustments” for Dragon Quest XI on Switch
Posted on 1 week ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 27 Comments | 0 Likes
Just this past weekend we discussed the strange situation surrounding Dragon Quest XI on Switch. Even though the release on Nintendo’s new console was announced ages ago, Square Enix has yet to show or say anything about this version.
Executive producer Yu Miyake finally broke the silence in an interview with Toyo Keizai. According to Miyake, he explained that it takes time to work on “technical adjustments,” so Square Enix is still in a state in which it can’t speak about a launch date. However, the Switch version is being developed with the intent to release it.
Dragon Quest XI has already shipped on 3DS and PlayStation 4. A western release is planned for 2018, though Square Enix has been keeping quiet on which platforms it will be localizing.

This month’s issue of Game Informer will have a huge feature on Pokemon developer Game Freak. The magazine visited the studio in Japan “to get the full history of the series and talk about what’s in store for the future on Switch.” Game Informer “explored deeper into Game Freak’s studio than any western outlet has ever been allowed and were able to not only see where Pokemon is made, but where its creators hold their meetings, eat lunch, and even create the series’ iconic soundtrack.” The new issue is packed with twelve pages “covering the studio’s history and read development stories for every core Pokémon RPG it has created.”
Aside from content in the magazine, Game Informer will have “written features and video interviews with Game Freak co-founder, producer, director, and composer, Junichi Masuda, and Sun and Moon’s director, Shigeru Ohmori.”
