Square Enix Reconfirms Dragon Quest XI For Nintendo NX And Hopes For Simultaneous Release

Good news for Dragon Quest fans as Square Enix has reconfirmed that Dragon Quest XI will come to the Nintendo NX. Japanese Nintendo publication Nintendo Dream recently had the opportunity to speak to a number of developers including Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii. Horii reconfirmed that Dragon Quest XI is in development for the next generation platform and that he hopes to have it released simultaneously with the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS versions.

Masahiro Sakurai: Well then, I would like to ask about each of your new games. First, Dragon Quest XI. The 11th installment in the series will be released simultaneously on Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation 4, and including NX it’s coming out on three platforms, right?

Yuji Horii: That’s right. The use of hardware is different for each system, so it’s quite a challenge.



    1. Except for Final Fantasy as I’ve played the original FFX and I have FFX/X-2 HD Remaster on my PS4. Playing X right now & will start on X-2 afterwards.

        1. Correctly? A terrorist group now! But thank you for falling for troll bait. ;)


    1. or it’s because it’s all different hardware and it’s difficult to manage the development of almost four versions of a game. Not being rude, but think a bit before you post.

      1. Don’t even bother replying to this guy?

        The user can’t tell that I’m trolling his ass and he’s also a racist too!


    2. He could’ve said that because according to rumors the NX will most likely be cartridge based while the PS4 is disc based or it could’ve been because (and again this is according to recent rumors) that the architectures from all 3 platforms are different (PS4 is x86 while the NX is rumored to be ARM) but he never implied that the NX will be difficult to develop for so try not to jump to conclusions so quick…….especially when the NX hasn’t been revealed yet

  1. Remember when Gabe Nor says that the PS3 was hard to master back when the system costs an arm and leg just to buy that junk!


  2. I’m hype. I’m glad the NX is increasing the reaches of it’s third party support. If the actual reveal is in September, it can’t come soon enough.

    1. They can really prove that by putting Rise Of Tomb Raider, Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy XV on the NX but yeah they are very supportive of the NX so far so it must’ve really impressed them

      1. ||If it’s not released outside our Homeworld, then their so called support will be mediocre at best and unnoticeable by the rest of us…||
