Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is now available worldwide for PlayStation 4 and Steam. It took more than one year to get an English translation of the game.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age follows the perilous journey of a hunted hero who must uncover the mystery of his fate with the aid of a charismatic cast of supporting characters. They embark on a quest taking them across continents and over vast oceans as they learn of an ominous threat facing the world.

The Western release delivers several upgrades and enhancements that are not in the Japanese versio, including:

  • English Voiceover
  • Draconian Quest, a hard mode that offers additional challenges for more experienced players.
  • Overhauled Menus & UI, with graphical enhancements and more intuitive navigation.
  • Camera Mode, allowing players to take in views of the beautiful landscape, character renders and ferocious monsters in detail.
  • A New Dash Function and many other system enhancements, such as improved character and camera movement

The game is still in development for the Nintendo Switch and was recently delayed due to the Unreal Engine that needs to be updated to support the Switch.
