As you probably already know if you’ve been following the various announcements, Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition features various improvements, extra features, and additional content, only found in this Nintendo Switch version of the game. Today, Square-Enix shared a few more details and some screenshots about just that!
As revealed during the latest Nintendo Direct presentation, Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition will offer two display options: the 3D graphics (from the PlayStation 4 version), and the 2D graphics(from the Nintendo 3DS version). Just like in the Nintendo 3DS version, you can switch from one to the other at (almost) any time during your adventure.
This version of the game also features orchestral music, though only for select tracks. Of course, if you prefer the original, synthetizer-made soundtrack, you will be able to stick to it!
When exploring the world, the various party members will travel by your side on the field, something that wasn’t possible in the original version on PlayStation 4. Said party members (as well as other characters found in the world) are also voiced during cutscenes, dialogue scenes, and during battles. If you don’t want those voices, and prefer to stick to the familiar sound effects, you will be able to so!
Finally, Square-Enix reveals that Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age Definitive Edition will have additional stories, each featuring one of the party members as protagonist. Those stories will shine some light on those characters, allowing you to learn more about them!
Finally, here’s some more screenshots for the game:
