Why take our word for it, though, when series mastermind Yuji Horii can tell you himself?
Although Square Enix has not announced which platforms Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will come to the west on, the game launched today in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS. The game, which will release as Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age, will be released sometime next year in North America and Europe. Thanks to the power of modern consoles, Dragon Quest XI will deliver a title that utilizes the latest and greatest in graphics technology, which should help elevate the highly anticipated title above the rest.
With 30 years of history, you'd be hard-pressed to find an American fan who knows the ins and outs of Dragon Quest. Horii-san admits that the localization process will take some time. Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will be available in 2018 and will be localised in to English, French, Spanish, Italian and German. The video also doesn't say if the global release will be on multiple platforms or not. They seemed different enough to warrant both being localized. The RPG is now being translated and localized, which in 2018 the game will release across PS4 and 3DS.
