Square Enix: Dragon Quest XI Switch Development Is Progressing Smoothly And Hints At A Tokyo Game Show Reveal

While Dragon Quest XI is due to arrive on the PlayStation 4 here in the west next month, we have heard next to nothing about the Nintendo Switch version. It seems as though it has become a closely guarded secret. Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii now says that Dragon Quest XI on the Nintendo Switch is “progressing smoothly” and he hinted that we could get the first look at the game during the Tokyo Game Show which takes place next month.

““I can’t really speak about it, but it is progressing smoothly.”

Horii also remarked, “I have a feeling we’ll have a variety of announcements around TGS, but just how much will we say…” hinting that there will be an announcement regarding the Switch version of Dragon Quest XI around Tokyo Game Show 2018, which runs from September 20 to 23.

Furthermore, Dragon Quest XI director Takeshi Uchikawa said, “I have a feeling we will be able to announce something soon.”



  1. That’s awesome, good news for sure. The future looks bright for Switch if you have the patience.

  2. I should assume so, ever since the Unreal 4.2 update added/improved support for Switch development. Should make developing the Switch ver. go much more smoothly.
