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.
