Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will be released in the west sometime in 2018, Square Enix has announced.
Franchise creator Yuji Horii shared the news in a video message addressed to Dragon Quest fans, during which he confirms that localization work has already begun. The game is being localized into five languages, one of which is English.
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age features character art by the beloved manga artist Akira Toriyama and music from longtime series composer Koichi Sugiyama.
The game launches this week on July 29 in Japan for PlayStation 4 and 3DS. While both versions can be purchased separately, a bundle that includes both versions is also available in Japan. A version for Nintendo Switch has also been confirmed for the region, but Square Enix has yet to announce a release date.
