Dragon Quest XI Not Coming To 3DS In The West, Switch Version Arrives “Much Later”

Dragon Quest XI is arriving on PS4, and for the first time ever for the series on PC, on September 8. However, the 3DS version won’t be coming Westward at all, and the Switch version will arrive “much later” according to a report from IGN.


In a statement to IGN, Square Enix said:

“Our aim with Dragon Quest XI and the Dragon Quest brand is to grow the audience in the West. From a business point of view, it made strategic sense to release the 3DS version in Japan in 2017. For the West in 2018, it made the most sense to focus on the PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam) platforms.”


The Square Enix representative also said the Switch version would definitely not be released in 2018, and could end up being released “much later.”

Dragon Quest XI is available in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS. The game will arrive in North America and Europe on September 4, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam. The Nintendo Switch version will release later.

So much for the "we'll keep supporting the 3ds".

Yeah it's a pretty dumb move. It was sure to sell and honestly, the more platforms you are on, the more exposure your game gets... and the 3DS is a great platform to get younger fans into the series.

SquareEnix don't generally release games on the 3DS in the west. Nearly all the ones released have been published by Nintendo. So the balls in there court and maybe they passed on it.

If we recap in the west they have killed consoles before east, so probably they will soon cease all publishing and then farewell.

If switch DQ XI turns out to be a lesser version then we will be left out with the most unique one and it's a shame because I was looking forward to it too.

I'd rather get it just on PS4 than not at all.

And to be honest, it's kind of nice to get a big, old fashioned, turn based JRPG on consoles instead of handhelds for a change.
