Dragon Quest XI Ventures Westward Next Year

Dragon Quest creator details localization process in new video

The debate over whether or not Dragon Quest XI would be coming to the West has been going on for quite some time, but SquareEnix has finally laid that argument to rest today by announcing that the rest of the world will be embarking on an all-new DQ adventure sometime next year.

The latest in the long-running RPG franchise, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age follows a hero on an all-new adventure, as he solves the mystery of his fate. Along the way, players can expect to meet plenty of unique individuals, coming in form of both enemies and allies. Echoes of an Elusive Age promises to offer a large world full of adventure, exploration, and plenty of opportunities for heroic acts, all under the artistic direction of Akira Toriyama, and musical direction of composer Koichi Sugiyama.

SquareEnix has also released a new video for the upcoming DQXI. Featuring series creator Yuji Horii, this video will give players a closer look at what they can expect from the game, and details the localization process thus far.

It’s been a long time coming, but we can finally say that Dragon Quest XI is on its way. Have you been looking forward to the Western release of this game? What do you think it will be like? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
