During Square Enix’s Dragon Quest XI release date announcement event, the company shared new PS4 and 3DS trailers as well as footage for the RPG. We also got additional details that were shared at the event.
Dragon Quest XI’s latest PlayStation 4 trailer.
The same trailer, but in its 3DS version.
A mixed trailer showing both PS4 and 3DS versions.
At the event, it was revealed that the game will take about 50 hours from just the story alone, but over 100 hours or so when you include side content. As another interesting bit of info, they talked about the “Spell of Restoration,” and how it’ll be used to reproduce your progress, and it can be used between PS4 and 3DS versions, however, it doesn’t make everything the exact same.
Here’s a look at some gameplay footage courtesy DualShockers from the event that shows us features such as the “Automatic Camera” battle mode that removes the ability to move but gives it a more cinematic presentation.
Additionally, Takashi Mochizuki of Wall Street Journal asked Square Enix’s PR about the Switch version of Dragon Quest XI, to which he was told that there’s plan for its support, but there aren’t any announcements for today and can’t say whether it’ll be released on a different date than the PS4 and 3DS versions.
Dragon Quest XI releases in Japan on July 29, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS.
