Square Enix has confirmed that Dragon Quest XI will indeed be coming to Nintendo’s upcoming console, which has so far been known only as the Nintendo NX. Dragon Quest XI was one of the earliest games to be announced for the console, but Square Enix soon backtracked on the announcement by saying that they are only “considering launching” the game on the NX. Now, Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii has confirmed that the game is coming out on the NX.
Apart from the NX version, the game will also release on PS4 and 3DS. There’s also a strong possibility that all three versions of the game will be launched simultaneously, in order to prevent spoilers from ruining the experience. Although no firm release date has been set for Dragon Quest XI, it is expected to release before the end of May 2017.
The Nintendo NX is expected to release some time in March, although there is little concrete information on the console itself. A number of observers have speculated that Nintendo will formally reveal the console in September this year. If so, we can expect Dragon Quest XI to be in the sizzle reel for the console.
