US: Nintendo confirms permanent price reduction of two Dragon Quest games

Nintendo of America has announced that both Dragon Quest Builders 2 and Dragon Quest XIS: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition on the Nintendo Switch system have had their recommended retail prices reduced. Dragon Quest Builders 2 on Switch will now be $49.99 and Dragon Quest XIS: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition will also be $49.99. The price reduction will take effect today.


    1. lol. I feel you there. Bought it at full price at launch on the Switch. It is worth it though long and amazing game.


      1. After playing such a deceptively long demo (Tockles spirit), I decided to get this game for Christmas. But because of the UPS in 2020’s pandemic, I had to order it early in November (or at least earlier this month) just to get it in time.

  1. So they really couldn’t bring themselves to match the ps4 price for dq11s at $40 or builders which is even less than that. *Facepalm*

    Yup the nintendo tax continues. Good thing I buy used on eBay when possible. Got dq11 for $35, so take that sqweenix and nintendo lol

    I might even go and pick up builders on eBay just for spite as well !! /S

      1. So that translates to a $10 increase? Come on now, if that was the case new games from third party would be priced at $70 instead of $60.

        The price difference between the two may cut into their net profit overall slightly, that’s still no justification. That’s if we were to assume that’s the reason for the price difference, highly unlikely. The nintendo tax is real.
