Dragon Quest XI coming to PS4, 3DS and…Nintendo’s NX

1 min read

Dragon quest XI

Dragon Quest is another franchise in the Square Enix stable that gets JRPG fans ridiculously excited. No, most iterations might not make it to the West, but who cares, we can still be excited about a new installment in the franchise. This time, it’s coming to Japan’s favorite platforms, the PS4 and the 3DS – as well as Nintendo’s mysterious NX console.

During a live streamed presentation, the next numbered installment of Dragon Question was announced. Titled Dragon Quest XI: The Search for a Bygone Time, it will be coming to console and handheld with the same stories. However, the PS4 version will be developed in Unreal Engine 4 and the graphics won’t even be comparable, especially as the 3DS is utilizing two different art styles – modern on the top and retro on the bottom screen.

Dragon Quest XI is also the first game to be announced for the Nintendo NX – suggesting that the system will be capable of running Unreal Engine 4. Hmm.

    Like someone told me just now, the UE4 is capable of running on mobile devices too, but the fact that the NX supports UE4 at least gives one the hope that it can reach or even surpass the level of power found on PS4. Other scenario is, it’s just a mobile console hybrid thingy lol

      They did say that NX wont be competing with the PS4 and XBox One in pure power so doubt it would be more powerful than the current new consoles. By the way… when do we stop calling the new consoles new or next gen consoles since they been around for more than a year?

    Also, bloody hell. DQ 11 though. This year has been incredible for jrpg fans. I’ve never been happier. I’m sure they’ll bring this game over. They’d be crazy not to. I’m definately showing my support with Dragon Quest Heroes.

    Guys…DRAGON QUEST 11! : D 😀 😀

    Another thing, how awesome is that 3DS version though. Modern on top, retro on the bottom. I’m torn between retro and modern look. Both look awesome!

    That Demo for the PS4 version blew me away though. SO PRETTY. Kingdom Hearts 3 and DQ XI looks amazing using UE4.

    NX according to Nintendo is a “A brand new hardware with a brand new concept” not sure if that was just market speak for new console or is it going to be something out of left field VR/AR maybe. They also said they will only be able to share details of it in 2016, so can’t see it been launched before end of next year unless it is merely a hardware peripheral and not a new console. VR for 3ds you heard it here first.

      Changed my mind, NX is going to be an Android phone with controls and advanced motion sensors that can run 3DS games.

        Nintendo have already denied that Android rumor.

          Yes you are correct and I knew that but I am getting old and forget things, also I bet that the NX is an android phone.
