Dragon Quest has a long storied history of RPG’s. It is one of the most revered role-playing game franchises of our time, next to Final Fantasy of course. With its iconic Slime monster design and classic turn-based combat system, Dragon Quest is an enjoyable romp for any RPG fan.
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is finally making it way across the open ocean and landing in the West. Coming to PlayStation 4 and PC on September 4th! Sadly the Switch version has been delayed until at least 2019. Regardless, I am overjoyed to jump in so soon!
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age tells a captivating tale of a hunted hero and is the long-awaited role-playing game from series creator Yuji Horii, character designer Akira Toriyama (of Dragon Ball fame), and series composer Koichi Sugiyama. As the eleventh mainline entry in the critically acclaimed series, Dragon Quest XI is a completely standalone experience that features entirely new characters, a beautifully detailed world, finely tuned turn-based combat, and an immersive story that will appeal to longtime fans and franchise newcomers alike. After its release in Japan, Dragon Quest XI won multiple gaming awards and received critical praise, including PlayStation’s Platinum Prize and a perfect 40/40 score from Famitsu.
