Yuji Horii teases Dragon Quest XI announcement to be made “in the coming days”

Posted on March 16, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News, Switch

Earlier today, the Dragon Quest-themed attraction opened at Universal Studios Japan. Series creator Yuji Horii was present, and shared a message during the opening ceremony.

About Dragon Quest XI, Horii teased:

“Everyone in the staff is working incredibly hard on it. I believe we’ll have some kind of announcement in the coming days, so please look forward to it.”

The common consensus is that Dragon Quest XI will finally be receiving a Japanese release date soon. Square Enix has previously spoken about wanting to have the RPG out within the series’ 30th anniversary, so the company has until May 27 to launch the game. It is possible though that XI won’t be ready until later in the year though.

    I am so so curious to see the Nintendo Switch version of this. After finding out that’s theres 100% an X1 powering the system, I don’t know how running this will be possible without significant downgrades. Concerns me a little but I’m ready to be proved wrong.
