Square Enix has announced that Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will be heading West in 2018. The RPG is currently being translated and localized, which in 2018 the game will release across PS4 and 3DS.
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age has received some love by Square Enix, who posted up a new description and video explaining the upcoming title:
“The highly anticipated latest entry to the beloved Dragon Quest video game franchise follows the adventure of a hero who must solve the mystery of his fate with the aid of a charming cast of supporting characters. Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will offer a world of adventure, exploration and instances of heroism— all brought to life by the character art of famed manga artist Akira Toriyama and the memorable music of composer Koichi Sugiyama.”
If you don’t know, Echoes of an Elusive Age has just released for PS4 and 3DS in Japan. A Switch version is also in the works and will release in Japan, too, but it has no official date set yet. Additionally, folks waiting in the West can watch series creator, Yuji Hori, announce the upcoming Western version and how it is currently in the localization stage.
Moreover, the PlayStation Blog has posted up actual gameplay footage of the PS4 version of Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time being played on PS Vita via the system’s Remote play feature. The video reveals the protagonist riding a horse through a cave-like area on a beach, where the horse itself is used to knock-out a couple of enemies in the world view map, thus leading to a battle shortly afterward. Slot machine gameplay starts at 1:13 in case you want to skip it.
