Square Enix reiterates that Dragon Quest XI is only being “considered” for NX

Last week, Square Enix announced the latest installment in the Dragon Quest franchise. The fact that the game is being released for PS4 and 3DS simultaneously was already a big enough surprise, but no one expected that Dragon Quest XI (and Dragon Quest X) would be announced for Nintendo’s NX as well. In a press release issued after the announcement, however, the wording changed from a “planned” NX release to a “considered” NX release.

Kotaku reached out to Square Enix for clarification and got the following response:

“Our press release contained the official statement that had been originally planned, and there is no reason to believe any changes were made mid-way to the content of the official announcement. The comment made during the event was not based on the official statement, so please allow us to correct our statement at this moment. We regret any confusion this may have caused.”

Looks like we’ll likely have to wait until an official announcement from Nintendo before we hear anything new about the NX versions of Dragon Quest X and XI.
