Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is finally heading to North America and Europe for PS4 and PC via Steam.
In Japan Dragon Quest XI received rave reviews and was given a perfect score from Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu and a Platinum PRize at Playstation Japan's end-of-year awards.
Sadly, the 3DS version of the game, which was released also in Japan, won't be getting the western release treatment. But at least Nintendo fans get something. They are currently working on a Switch version of the game and will be released at a later date.
For the first time for the series, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will have a full English voiceover localization. The Japanese version didn't even have voiceover when it was released in July last year. On top of all the content from the Japanese version, Draconian Quest will be included that supposedly adds more challenge for experienced players.
A few more enhancements were mentioned for this version of the game such as an overhaul for the menus, user interface, improved character and camera movement plus the inclusion of a Camera Mode.
A western release was mentioned way back in 2017 but it's only now that we get a release date.
Pre-orders are now live and those who preorder in the PSN store will receive an exclusive "The Legend Reborn" theme plus a few DLC items.

The ever twisting saga of Kingdom Hearts and its convoluted lore isn’t what undercuts Kingdom Hearts III but its own feckless mechanics and the degenerate gameplay experience that comes out of it.
In the past, Nomura and the rest of the Kingdom Hearts team would plug in backstory elements to the series via re-releases, but Nomura said that releasing content piecemeal is his preferred solution this time around.
So how does the game fare with critics? Judging by the first wave of reviews, the reception is pretty positive, notwithstanding some reservations regarding the game’s narrative.
Just Cause 4 feels like you're living in and advancing the plot of a B–movie, and that's amazing. Wherever Rico goes, there's bound to be action, excitement, and more importantly, explosions.
Can Kingdom Hearts III satisfy longtime fans who eagerly await the resolution of a long-running saga and draw in a new generation of would-be fans keen to jump into the Disney playground?
Though the DLC emphasizes co-op action, you can still play through the entire scenario solo.
ESGS 2018 isn’t short of exceptionally sound attractions and happenings that every local fan can experience when checking out the event. Here are the stories that stood out for this year.
