Initially released in Japan last summer for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS, Dragon Age Quest 11 finally heads to the West this September 4 and will be released on both the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. 

Furthermore, developer Square Enix decided not to localize the 3DS version of the game to the West. However, Nintendo fans will still be able to play the eleventh entry in the Dragon Quest franchise when the game is released to the Nintendo Switch at a later date. 

Dragon Quest 11 for the PC and PlayStation 4 will still be the same game that was previously released in Japan, with a few minor tweaks here and there. In a press release, Square Enix revealed that a few updates would be introduced to make the game more relatable to a Western audience, which will include:

  • 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. 

Starting today, players can already pre-order Dragon Quest 11 for the PlayStation 4, and PC, via the game’s official website or from the respective digital stores of both platforms. It is currently priced at $59.99. If you're interested in what the game is all about, you can check out a short gameplay preview of the game below:
