Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age, the latest game in Square-Enix’s long-running JRPG series, is set to release on the PlayStation 4 and Steam later this summer. And while a Nintendo Switch version is also in the works, the developer has been tight-lipped when it comes to the game’s progress. While fielding questions from fans on Twitter via the franchise’s official account, a Square-Enix representative shed a bit more light on the project when asked about game’s status saying the Switch version “is still in development and is quite a ways off.”

Dragon Quest XI is the latest mainline entry in Square-Enix’s beloved JRPG franchise. In it, players assume the role of a young man who’s about to participate in his village’s coming of age ceremony. However, following a series of unexpected events, he discovers that he is the reincarnation of a legendary hero from a forgotten age.

The PlayStation 4 and Steam versions of Dragon Quest XI are scheduled to release on September 4, 2018. For more on the game, check out Anthony’s E3 preview here.
