Dragon Quest XI: Echoes Of An Elusive Age Western Localization Confirmed For PlayStation 4

Shortly after Square-Enix announced localization for Dragon Quest XI the other day and promised further details later, Sony's European Youtube channel has confirmed that at least the PlayStation 4 version is coming.

Dragon Quest XI came in two different versions in Japan, one for the PlayStation 4 and one for the Nintendo 3DS. The PlayStation 4 version is a high-budget, fully 3D RPG made in Unreal Engine 4. The 3DS version is itself two versions - a 3D world akin to Dragon Quest IX, or a completely sprite-based version that resembles Dragon Quest games of old. All versions share the same story, characters, and gameplay.

It is unknown if Square-Enix has plans to release the Nintendo 3DS game in the west.

Our Take
It would be profoundly disappointing if Square-Enix decided not to bring the 3DS version over, but who knows whether Sony is helping to publish the game, or if Nintendo plans to make an announcement later.
