Last week, Bandai Namco published a Pro Yakyuu Famista Climax demo on the Japanese 3DS eShop. Have a look at the download below.

Earlier today, we learned that the 3DS version of Dragon Quest XI will launch on July 29th in Japan. Nothing was said about the Switch version in the announcement stream though. However, journalist Takashi Mochizuki reached out to Square Enix regarding the Switch version of the game and received the following reply:

“It is still planned but no announcements today. Whether it launches together on the same day as PS4 and 3DS or not we cannot say today.”

A fairly noncommittal reply – at this point it seems unlikely that the Switch version will launch on July 29th as well, though Square Enix aren’t ruling it out.

Square Enix debuted the Dragon Quest XI boxart during its Dragon Quest XI Release Date Presentation today. Check it out above.

The 3DS version of Dragon Quest XI will cost 5,980 yen. Square Enix will also offer a double pack with the PlayStation 4 version for 14,960 yen. This will be sold exclusively at the Square Enix e-store, Lawson. and HMV.

It also sounds like a hardware bundle is planned. Nintendo should be sharing details at a later date.


Dragon Quest XI finally has a release date in Japan. On 3DS, the game is set to release on July 29.

Square Enix made today’s announcement during its Dragon Quest XI Release Date Presentation. However, it neglected to say when the Switch version will be made available.

Square Enix will soon be hosting its Dragon Quest XI Release Date Presentation live stream. As the name implies, we’re expecting the RPG to be given a final date in Japan – at least on 3DS. It’ll be interesting to see if Square Enix talks about the Switch version of the game or holds off until sometime in the future.

You can watch the Dragon Quest XI Release Date Presentation as it happens below. It should begin in about an hour from now.
