    This looks like a nice contrast to what they do with the Final Fantasy series. I like innovation, but Final Fantasy hasn't known what it's about for over a decade now. This looks like it at least somewhat remembers the franchise who's name is carries.

    Actually, Hyrule's a big place. There's Kakariko village, Death Mountain, Zelda's castle, the Lost Woods...
    :D 

    Buuuuuut seriously,
    I love the old-school look of this. If it's anywhere near as enjoyable as DQVIII I'll be all over it...once I actually buy a PS4.

    I'll probably get it on the switch.

    Wow, you can ride horses and dragons? That's crazy! Also, did I see 6 party members? That's also crazy. Bought day one.

    Looks to be a very good reason to buy a PS4.

    btw, can we turn this thread into an all dragon quest encompassing thread? I mean the series is bigger than FF and deserves one.

    Why? It's coming out on the switch or 3DS.

    Dragon Quest XI Sells 2 Million Copies In Two Days In Japan - IGN

    3DS with 1,130,468 and PS4 with 950,338. As always, digital sales not included.

    Seeing the 3DS sold really well even with the different style graphics (even though im sure it was more about portability)...i wonder how the Switch version will do. I think it'll match PS4 numbers at least.

    Aw man! Don't own a PS4 so I can't play it on that. And I really am not interested in playing a DQ game of this caliber on 3DS. Apparently the Switch version seems to be delayed due to technical difficulties so unless I cave and get it for 3DS, I won't be playing it any time soon. :(

    Got my pre-order in last week. Super excited.

    This review is actually really insightful towards the sertas a whole, and is funny to boot.

    I'll probably go 3DS on this. I plan to buy a PS4 someday, but working on a newer PC for play and work first.

    Unfortunately... there is no US release of the 3DS version.

    Not sure why, other than that Nintendo seemed to set a hard and fast rule that Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon were the last games they were going to support for the platform. It seems like the game is really meant to be played with the PC/Console graphics though.

    Been a long time since updates here, we got a Switch exclusive Definitive Edition during that time, and today they announced that S version is now being ported to PS4, Xbox and Steam.
    'Dragon Quest XI S' comes to Xbox and PC on December 4th

    Xbox even got a trailer hosted by Yuji Horri himself.

    YES YES YES!
    I’ve been debating for weeks which version to get. I wanted the Definitive Edition enhancements (especially the orchestral soundtrack) but I wanted to play it on my PS4. Thank the gaming gods I waited :D
