Square Enix began streaming a promotional video on Saturday for Dragon Quest XI S: Sugisarishi Toki o Motomete, the Switch version of the Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age (Dragon Quest XI: Sugisarishi Toki o Motomete) game. The video reveals the game's 2019 release. The staff are preparing a "surprise" for the work on January 1.
Square Enix describes the game:
A young man, about to participate in his village's coming of age ceremony, heads off to the top of the local lookout point alongside his childhood friend. After a series of unexpected events, this intrepid adventurer learns he is the reincarnation of a legendary hero from a forgotten age.
The young hero sets forth into an unknown world on a journey to unravel the mystery of his past…but the welcome he receives is far from warm.
Upon revealing his identity to the King, the hero is branded as “The Darkspawn” and hunted by a relentless army.
Fleeing from his pursuers, the hero assembles a band of endearing adventurers who believe he is actually the Luminary reborn. He and his newfound companions embark on a quest that will take them across continents and over vast oceans as they learn of an ominous threat facing the world.
The game launched for both PlayStation 4 and PC (via Steam) in North America and Europe on September 4. The game shipped in Japan for PS4 and Nintendo 3DS in July 2017.
The game has shipped 4 million copies worldwide, including digital download copies.
