Square Enix has finally revealed when western gamers can get their hands on the long-awaited Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age. The game will launch on the PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe on September 4th. However, IGN has revealed that the Nintendo Switch version of the game will launch much later. That’s a shame for Nintendo only gamers. The company also revealed that they won’t be launching the Nintendo 3DS version of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age in the west.
IGN: “As for the Switch version, things are slightly less clear. “We are also developing the Switch version for Europe and North America,” reads Square Enix’s statement, “but development is expected to take a long time from a technological standpoint as well, so we still have a long way to go until its release”.
“At a Dragon Quest event, a Square Enix PR representative told IGN that the Switch version would definitely not be released in 2018, and could end up being released “much later”.
