Game Jump, a publication in Japan, recently published a feature on the upcoming game Dragon Quest XI: In Search Of Departed Time which is coming to 3DS, Nintendo Switch and PS4. Although the page is printed in Japanese, thanks to Gamatsu, we have a translation which reveals some interesting information about the title. Take a look at some of the points below the picture:
- New Character
“It is my mission to make the people of the world smile!”
A character who seems to be a traveler, but his tone is…
- New Monsters
A monster that carries a huge needle that can fill anything with holes!
A lantern that was thrown away and became a monster in its resentment against humans.

- Loads of New Systems

Caption below the PlayStation 4 screenshot of the protagonist talking to a character wearing red: “As you approach people, you can hear their voices through the speech bubbles that appear over their head.”

Camp System (Red Box)
On the field, you can make a bonfire. This should prove useful when you have a long way to travel!
