A few days ago, Square Enix confirmed that Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition will launch on the PC via Steam as well as the Microsoft Store on December 4th. This marks the first time that the Dragon Quest series is getting a release on an Xbox platform. The video (which we’ve provided above) covers the trailer for the ports, not to mention a message from series creator Yuji Horii himself.
The game, an enhanced version of the original Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age game, originally launched for the Nintendo Switch on September of 2019.
The original game actually shipped in Japan for both the PS4 and Nintendo 3DS in July of 2017.
Square Enix describes the game:
A young man, about to participate in his village’s coming of age ceremony, heads off to the top of the local lookout point alongside his childhood friend. After a series of unexpected events, this intrepid adventurer learns he is the reincarnation of a legendary hero from a forgotten age.– Square Enix
The young hero sets forth into an unknown world on a journey to unravel the mystery of his past…but the welcome he receives is far from warm.
Upon revealing his identity to the King, the hero is branded as “The Darkspawn” and hunted by a relentless army.
Fleeing from his pursuers, the hero assembles a band of endearing adventurers who believe he is actually the Luminary reborn. He and his newfound companions embark on a quest that will take them across continents and over vast oceans as they learn of an ominous threat facing the world.
Currently, the game has shipped over 4 million copies worldwide, including digital download copies.
