Dragon Quest XI

Dragon Quest XI doesn’t feature any sort of voice acting. In the latest issue of Famitsu, the RPG’s developers explain why, as translated by Siliconera.

Square Enix gave much thought to the possibility of including voice acting in Dragon Quest XI. In fact, it was something that the staff had big debates about. Ultimately, the team decided to preserve the style Dragon Quest is known for.

New off-screen screenshots have just come out for Dragon Quest XI showing off the 3DS version of the game.

Dragon Quest XI has a unique “Restricted Play” mode. When going through this mode, you can experience the RPG with certain features disabled.

Square Enix previously confirmed being unable to shop, being unable to run away from battle, and being unable to equip armor as the first three restrictions. The fourth was announced during the “Countdown Carnival” in Japan this past weekend.

Dragon Quest XI’s next restriction is known as “ashamed curse”. It makes you unable to speak properly to people in town, causes embarrassing things to happen in battle that make you unable to act (such as the elastic band of your underwear breaking), and has various other embarrassing elements.
